Drowning Accidents in Fort Lauderdale, FL

Drowning Accidents Caused by Negligence

Death and injury from drowning accidents are a large problem in our state. The Florida Department of Health reported that death from drowning was the leading cause of fatalities for children under the age of 5. According to the CDC, more than 1 out of every 5 persons who die from drowning are children aged 14 or younger. In our state, most of the deaths from drowning happen in swimming pools and not at the beaches we are so famous for. Unfortunately, many drowning accidents are caused by negligence on the part of those who operate or own the facility. Over-crowded pools and water parks could lack proper supervision or have badly trained or inadequate numbers of lifeguards.

An area that does not have proper fencing and other safety measures in place to restrict unauthorized access to the pool, can lead to a drowning death. Drowning accidents can also be the consequence of warning or other safety signs being missing or a lack of emergency life-saving equipment. When the negligence of another has caused a drowning injury or wrongful death, please call a dedicated Fort Lauderdale personal injury attorney from our firm. With over 70 years of combined experience, we know what it takes to see that personal injury victims are fairly compensated for their pain and suffering.
