Who Is Liable for a Drowning Accident?
Drowning accidents are horrific, scary, and emotionally scarring. If your loved one drowned as a result of someone else’s negligence, you can pursue justice by filing a wrongful death lawsuit.
Who can be held liable for a drowning accident?
- The property owner
- The lifeguard
- The boat operator or owner
- Others responsible for the safety or well-being of the victim
Pool owners are responsible for making sure their property is reasonably safe for guests. If a pool is uncovered and a child falls in, or there are tripping hazards or other dangerous conditions that could cause a child or adult to drown, the property owner may be held liable in a civil lawsuit.
For boating accidents involving drowning, the boat operator or owner may be held liable for any injuries or deaths that occur. Lifeguards may also be liable for failing to follow safety protocols or emergency procedures to keep swimmers safe. If your loved one died as a result of negligence, we can help.
