Drowning Lawyers

Any time a person is out on the water, whether boating or swimming, he or she faces the risk of drowning. To help mitigate this threat, boat operators should always have enough flotation devices onboard for all passengers, and they should pay constant, close attention to the water to ensure that they do not accidentally run over swimmers. Unfortunately, however, not all boat operators act as carefully as they should, potentially causing others to suffer in drowning accidents.

Although drowning is often fatal, victims of boating accidents may survive drowning only to face a host of ensuing health problems. The lack of oxygen circulated to the brain during drowning can cause extensive brain damage, possibly disabling a person for the rest of his or her life. In these situations, the person or party at fault for the accident can and should be held accountable for all of the damages they caused.

Drowning Cases We Handle

At Hull & Zimmerman, P.C., we have years of experience in handling drowning-related boat accidents. We may be able to help you pursue compensation if you or a loved one has suffered in a drowning accident due to any of the following types of boat operator negligence:

  • Failing to provide boaters with lifejackets or floatation devices
  • Recklessly driving a boat, causing it to crash or capsize
  • Colliding with another boat or watercraft, causing that boat to sink or capsize
  • Striking a swimmer in the water

In some cases, drowning incidents can prove fatal. These tragic incidents may leave a family with an unthinkable loss, and, to make matters worse, a stressful financial situation. Whether causing a treatable injury, a long-term disability, or an untimely passing, the person responsible for the drowning incident may be held liable through a personal injury lawsuit.
