As an aggressive drowning accident attorney, we handle accidental deaths and near-drowning injuries.
It only takes a moment for a pleasant dip in the pool, lake, or ocean to turn tragic if someone begins to drown. While drowning deaths are extremely painful for families, it’s important to remember that not all drowning accidents are fatal. Near-drowning accidents can leave victims—typically children—with permanent brain injuries, which can cause significant suffering and hardship for families.
When these kinds of accidents are caused by negligence, the negligent party must pay. At Perlmutter & Pourshalimi, we understand the law on drowning accidents, and we can help families secure the compensation they deserve for fatal and near-fatal drowning accidents.
Here are some possible examples of negligence that could create liability for drowning accidents:
In the case of a near-fatal drowning accident, we will be seeking personal injury damages including medical expenses, lost income, lost enjoyment of life, and pain and suffering. Since injuries from near-fatal drownings are often disabling and permanent, we will be sure to account for future medical costs when calculating your damages. For example, we can include the cost of life long nursing care or future medical treatments.
