Drowning

We resolve Drowning cases. Drowning is the leading cause of all accidental deaths among small children (one to four years of age) and the second leading cause among all children from one to 14 years of age, following only motor vehicle accidents. Drownings can occur in a number of places, including public and private swimming pools, recreational waterways such as lakes and ponds, spas, hot tubs and even in bathtubs. In non-fatal cases, with brain damage generally resulting after four minutes of submersion, an estimated 20 percent of victims suffer severe, permanent brain injuries. Fault plays a part in many drownings and near-drowning cases, whether the cause is lack of supervision or a problem with the premises. If you or someone you known died or suffered serious injury as the result of a drowning incident please call Art Liebling to learn your rights.
