St. Louis Drowning Accident Attorney
Have you lost a family member to a drowning accident?
Drowning accidents occur each year to victims of all ages. What begins as a fun-filled summer day can often end in tragedy. The National Safety Council's statistics show that an estimated 5,000 children ages 14 and under are hospitalized due to unintentional drowning-related incidents each year, many in swimming pool accidents.
An estimated 15% die in the hospital and as many as 20% suffer severe permanent neurological disability. Accidents occur in any body of water oftentimes under supervision of either family or lifeguards. This horrific incident can be life changing for an entire family. If you or a family member is faced with this sudden horror, contact a St. Louis personal injury attorney to help protect you legal rights immediately.

Helplessness and not knowing the family's legal rights is monumental. There, however, is a way to deal with the mounting expenses.
