Florida is known for warm weather that invites people to enjoy swimming pools, lakes, rivers, and beaches. However, with far too much frequency, many Floridians dive into these waters without knowing the actual depths. Diving into shallow water and striking the bottom is a common cause of spinal cord injury, drowning or death.
We at Vanguard Attorneys can’t stress how important it is to be informed about a body of water prior to diving in. But, we know there are times when a person who controls the area where the diving accident occurred could have taken greater precautionary measures to prevent the injury from occurring.

Do You Have a Case?
You may have a personal injury claim if the area wasn’t marked or if something gave you the impression that it was safe to dive into the water. If you, or a loved one, have been injured after a drowning accident we will work relentlessly to help you receive the best possible outcome. We will investigate the circumstances of the diving accident and assess the liability of the person managing the location where the injury occurred.
Our legal team’s investigation process will consist of the following:
- Sending an investigator to take photographs and measurements of the body of water
- Taking witness statements
- Researching whether similar incidents have occurred at that location in the past
