In the United States, drownings are responsible for thousands of deaths each year.Unfortunately, many of these deaths occur to young children. In fact, drowning is one of the leading causes of death for children who are under the age of 14 in the United States. The children who are fortunate enough to survive drowning often sustain serious, debilitating injuries that have lasting, irreversible side effects (coma, paralysis, paraplegic, quadriplegia). For example, it is common for children who have drowned to sustain brain injuries, which can lead to the development of numerous severe medical conditions.
A drowning can occur at any time and at any place. However, many drownings occur in public swimming pools and water parks, and result from lack of required supervision and negligence. In these types of environments, the law requires appropriate supervision from lifeguards or other types of safety professionals. When lifeguards or safety professionals are negligent or fail to do their jobs, and a person drowns, the facility may be held liable. Additionally, the owner of the pool or water facility may be held responsible as well for not ensuring the general safety of visitors.
