Tampa Drowning Accident Lawyers
When Negligence Leads to Injuries
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, about ten people
in the U.S. die each day due to drowning accidents. Unfortunately, these
drowning accidents are far too familiar to Floridians, who live in an
environment which invites people to enjoy the water.
Florida actually has the
leading number of child drowning accidents in the nation and the majority occurred in residential swimming pools.
A distracted caregiver who may not be accustomed to having young children
visit might fail to keep an eye on a small child or take the appropriate
safety measures. Although drowning accidents are prevalent among young
children, many adults and adolescents in Florida are victims of drowning
accidents as well.
This is often the result of the property owner's negligence including:
- Obscured/missing depth markers
- Lack of life-saving equipment
- Unstable ladder
- Inadequate lighting
- Unsafe drain system
