Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Swimming Accident Attorney Washington DCIf you or a loved one was injured as the result of a swimming accident, you may find it helpful to seek legal counsel from a swimming accident attorney Washington DC victims have gotten help from in the past. If someone close to you has died as the result of drowning or other swimming related accidents, talking to a compassionate swimming accident attorney may help you to make informed decisions about what your next steps should be.

Dangerous Waters

When summer comes around, swimming pools, water parks, lakes and beaches become favorite places for families to relax and have fun in Washington, DC. Despite the public perception of safety, there is a serious threat of injury and drowning while swimming, especially for children. If you or someone close to you has suffered as the result of a swimming accident, you may find it helpful to discuss your situation with a swimming accident attorney Washington DC is glad to have on its side.

Poolside and other swimming related accidents are the second leading cause of death for children under 14 years of age. For children 1 to 4 years old this is second only to death caused by birth injuries. For children 4 to 14, accidental drowning is second only to deaths caused by car accidents. For people age 15 and older, swimming accidents and drowning are more likely to occur in open water such as at a lake or beach.

If you or someone you know has been injured in a swimming related accident, an experienced swimming accident attorney Washington DC residents have grown to trust may be able to help you determine if you are entitled to compensation for this.

Drowning

The most common accident for children under the age of 14 is unintentional drowning. Drowning can occur for multiple reasons including lack of swimming ability, lack of proper barriers, lack of supervision, and other preexisting medical conditions.

Although 92% of drowning victims survive, it is estimated that 5,000 children are hospitalized each year as a result of drowning while swimming.

Approximately 15% of children hospitalized from drowning die and another 20% suffer serious, and often permanent, brain injuries.

Other common injuries that can be sustained while swimming are fractures, sprains, breaks and concussions. These are often caused by slip and fall incidents but occur for many different reasons as well.

If a child or someone close to you has suffered because of a partial drowning, or has died as the result of drowning, a compassionate swimming accident attorney Washington DC community members have gotten help from in the past may be able to help you to make an informed decision about what your next steps should be.

Public and Privately Owned Water

Drowning accidents can happen in both publicly and privately owned swimming pools, lakes, beaches, water parks, and spas. The likelihood of drowning in a body of water varies depending on the age group.

While large, crowded public pools may seem more dangerous, most swimming pool accidents occur at private residences. Even if a pool is part of a private residence, the pool owner has a duty to keep the pool safe for those s/he may allow to use the pool.

Unfortunately, terrible accidents also happen at public pools. Public pool owners and operators are required to take steps to ensure the safety of swimmer, including having an adequate number of qualified lifeguards on duty during swim hours.

Whether it was in a public or private body of water, if you or someone close to you was injured while in the water, you may be in need of a qualified swimming accident attorney Washington DC victims have been able to rely on in the past at Cohen & Cohen, P.C.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
