Drowning Accident Personal Injury Law | St. Louis

Personal Injury Legal Representation in St. Louis and Beyond for Drowning Premises Liability

Drowning is a tragic accident that affects children and adults alike. Drowning is a silent trauma, one that may go unnoticed by lifeguards and others nearby. Drowning accidents may take place in a variety of locations, including lakes, rivers, and bathtubs, but swimming pool drownings are the most common. Our attorneys know from experience representing drowning accident lawsuits that this is a complex and tragic type of accident that leaves a family with many unanswered questions about how this could have happened.

The National Safety Council estimates that 5,000 American children ages 14 and under are hospitalized due to drowning accidents on an annual basis. Of those who are hospitalized after a drowning incident, approximately 15% die and another 20% are left with severe and permanent neurological damage. Medical expenses, both for emergency and long-term care, can pile up quickly. It is difficult to anticipate the extent of potential expenses into the future.

Feelings of grief, overwhelm and helplessness are normal following a drowning accident. Intimidated by the claims process, many families avoid getting involved with legal matters or simply accept the first insurance settlement offered. From our experience working with many families in premises liability claims, we know that first offers from insurance companies are often inadequate for the degree of suffering and damage caused. Our goal is to support families to take control of their lives following an unexpected tragedy in order to avoid being re-victimized by an insurance company.

No amount of money can undo what has happened to you family, but money can help you recover a sense of normalcy. The medical bills and expenses associate with a serious drowning accident could leave your family in significant debt. This accident did not need to happen, and there is no reason for it lead to any additional harm now.

Our attorneys handling St. Louis drowning accident claims explore every possible avenue in order to determine if another party is liable.
