DROWNING ACCIDENT

SOLUTIONS START HERE.

What happens when one moment you’re enjoying a fun day at the pool and the next your life changes dramatically?

It’s a sad statistic, but an estimated ten people pass away from accidental drowning in the U.S. every day. Grieving a loss of a loved one due to the negligence of others is a terrible situation to be in. However, at Loutos Law Firm, we will seek compensation and justice on behalf of your loved one.

In the U.S., drowning-related deaths occur most often in home pools on residential properties. Children make up around 25 percent of all drowning victims. For victims and their families, drowning incidents can have life-changing consequences. Survivors of drowning incidents may suffer severe, chronic health issues, while fatal drowning victims leave catastrophic emotional and financial burdens for their surviving loved ones.

Losing a loved one to a drowning accident is emotionally devastating. If you’ve lost a loved one in a drowning accident resulting from the negligence of another party, we encourage you to reach out to the team at Loutos Law Firm.

How Drowning Happens

Drowning refers to the process of suffocation that happens when a liquid covers a person’s mouth and nose and cuts off their oxygen supply. Drowning often happens silently, as it is difficult to call for help once your oxygen supply is cut off. While drowning can happen in the blink of an eye, people can also die from drowning-related injuries hours after the accident happened if complications from the drowning are not immediately addressed. Common symptoms following a drowning rescue include wheezing, anxiety, vomiting, and losing consciousness. Sometimes, individuals may pass away from drowning-related complications hours following the initial incident, and common complications include acute respiratory, hypothermia, hypoxia, aspiration of vomit, and head and spinal cord injuries. 

Some Common Sites Of Drowning Deaths:

  • Hot tubs

  • Home pools

  • Sink (infant drowning)

  • Baths

  • Ditches

  • Rivers

  • Ponds

  • Water parks

  • Boating accidents

  • Flood disasters
