Swimming Accidents

Drowning Accident Lawyers Serving Washington, DC, Maryland and Virginia

If you or a family member suffered a swimming injury, you may want to consult with swimming accident lawyers right away. While swimming around in a pool on a hot day can be fun and relaxing, it can also be dangerous. If people are not cautious around swimming pools, they are in danger of drowning and other swimming accidents. Children are especially vulnerable to these types of accidents.

As swimming accident lawyers can attest, swimming accidents are the second leading cause of death among children under 14. It’s second just to death caused by birth injuries in children 1 to 4. For children 4 to 14, accidental drowning is just second only to deaths caused by auto accidents. Swimming accidents are more likely to occur in open water among those 15 and older.

Unintentional drowning is the most common accident that occurs while swimming, as a swimming accident law firm Washington D.C. residents trust can confirm. Individuals may be more likely to drown if they can’t swim, are not supervised or have preexisting medical conditions. Approximately 5,000 children are hospitalized every year because of drowning accidents. About 15 percent of these children die and another 20 percent suffer serious brain injuries. Other injuries individuals can suffer during swimming include fractures and sprains.

Swimming accident lawyers have seen swimming accidents occur in many bodies of water, including oceans, lakes and water parks. The majority of swimming accidents occur at private residences. Every pool owner has a responsibility to make sure the pool is safe for others. It’s important for all pools to have warning signs alerting swimmers of potential dangers. Pools should also have fencing around them. This way, little children can’t get in the pool by themselves. If a pool owner fails to keep the pool safe and an accident occurs, he or she can be held liable.

Swimming accident lawyers have represented many victims who were injured at public pools. To keep people from getting hurt, it’s vital for public pool operators to hire experienced lifeguards. These lifeguards should be watching the swimmers at all times and step in if they see them doing something dangerous. If a lifeguard is always on the premises, there will be fewer accidents.

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.
