Deaths and injuries have been reported by law enforcement and the media every year during the summer in Arizona.  Swimming pools are a potential safety hazard, especially for children, and it is important to take all necessary precautions to avoid drowning accidents.  You must keep your private pool supervised by an adult at all times.

 

Accidents in Public Pools

 

At a public pool, you can always make sure that there is a certified lifeguard caring for the patrons.  In case of any drowning injury, the lifeguard and the pool owner may be held liable for their negligence and the resulting damages.  This Tucson law firm is ready to file a personal injury claim or a lawsuit for any drowning accident.  Just call us for a free and completely confidential consultation.

Contact a Tucson Attorney Today

 

It is important to contact a Tucson attorney soon after a pool accident to ensure the preservation of all evidence in your case. The moment a death or serious accident is reported, insurance companies deploy their team of professional investigators to analyze the pool accident, and generate a defense for the person who caused the death of the minor.  We only handle wrongful death cases on a contingency basis, which means that you do not owe any fees unless we obtain compensation on your behalf.

 

You won’t have to repay us (through an insurance fund), unless we win your case.  For more information on how a skilled Tucson personal injury attorney from our firm can help you, please contact us today.

Preventing Drowning Accidents in Arizona

Arizona provides wonderful weather that is prime for pool parties for children in the summers.  Unfortunately, Arizona is also known for the deaths of children in private home pools.  Preventing drowning accidents is our duty as parents.  Drowning accidents can cause permanent head injuries to children.  As such, all Arizona adults should help in preventing drowning accidents.

 

Proper Response to Avoid Injury

Learning the signs of this reaction can help you save the life of a child, or in preventing drowning accidents altogether.  Drowning victims typically extend their arms laterally and press down on the surface of the water.  They may also not respond verbally, or may be gasping while not using their legs.  These are signs of drowsing and a potentially severe injury.  Proactive responses include having adults take turns supervising the children as they use the pool.  Life guards can also be hired during kid’s parties to prevent any water related accidents.  Unfortunately, we see reports on our Arizona channels every summer that document the injury or death of a child–being proactive is the key to avoiding accidents and injuries.

Time is Critical When Helping a Drowning Victim

Once a person begins drowning, he or she must be rescued in less than one minute.  In the case of young child, the window of opportunity is even narrower.  Delayed rescue times in swimming pool accidents can result in serious injuries, or even death.  Improper supervision by adults, or lack of life guards can result in tragic water accidents.  Thus, it is important to act quickly and without hesitation when preventing drowning accidents.
