Drowning Accidents

Each and every year Americans flock to the swimming pools, beaches or take to the open waters on their boats, jet-skis or other watercraft. There is no doubt that we are drawn to the water. Swimming and boating are generally safe so long as we follow basic safety precautions. Sadly, accidents still happen. There are about 3,000 drowning incidents across the United States each year. Even more unfortunate is the fact that many of these incidents are avoidable. Too often drowning cases are caused by irresponsible pool owners, negligent boat operators or a failure to post proper warnings in areas where swimming is dangerous. If you have experienced a wrongful death in your family due to a drowning accident, a compassionate and determined Ventura County personal injury attorney from our firm might be able to help you in seek justice and compensation for your loss.

Boat operators are required by law to have life vests for all of their passengers. Even when safety precautions are followed many people are still affected by tragic accidents due to defective products. For example, boaters and swimmers usually put their faith in life vest and if these products are defective, we will fight to hold the manufacturer accountable. In addition, hazardous swimming areas are required to have adequate warning signs so swimmers can avoid dangerous areas. If there was not adequate signage prior to a tragic accident, our tenacious firm will be driven to hold those responsible to account. We are very well-versed in these matters and will methodically investigate your case to determine all of your legal options.
