Arizona Swimming Pool Accident, Child Drowning, and Swimming Danger Attorney

When will child drowning and swimming related injuries in Arizona stop?

If your child has drowned or suffered any water related tragedy, you and your family may need the help of Phoenix child water accident lawyers to get compensation from those responsible. You may also need an attorney to help prevent this kind of tragedy from ever befalling another family. Perhaps through holding irresponsible adults accountable, the number of water related tragedies in Arizona will be reduced.

Tragedies involving water occur at many places throughout Arizona: lakes, hotels, resort pools, summer camps, water parks and other bodies of water can often be the scene of drowning or catastrophic injury. Contact the Phoenix child water accident attorneys at the Law Offices of Shane L. Harward, if your child has suffered such a tragedy.

Across Arizona, child drowning tragedies are painfully common.

Children are often happiest in or near water. Yet whenever a child is near water, they are at risk. Too often, Arizona’s children suffer doing what makes them happiest: swimming or playing around water. An adult guardian may be responsible for the child’s injury or death. Whether a lifeguard, resort staff member, camp counselor, boat operator, family friend or other guardian, your child should have been safe near water while in that adult’s care.

As parents, we trust other adults around our children. We often trust them to watch our children around water. Occasionally, these adults fail us and our children.

A childhood accident involving water may require life-long medical care.

Adults who own pools have a responsibility to ensure their gates or other safety features are in proper working order. These pool safety devices are not always maintained. This type of failure and failure to responsibly observe children near water should not be tolerated. Swimming pool accidents and other tragedies near water can result in drowning death or other catastrophe including some of the following injuries:

  • Brain damage, often resulting from oxygen deprivation
  • Disfigurement from boat propellers, jet skis, or other watercraft
  • Head injuries, fractures, and broken limbs
  • Spinal injury as the result of a dive or fall

If your family is confronting a drowning tragedy or your child was injured in any way, contact an attorney with experience and compassion. Contact the Arizona swimming pool accident lawyers at the Law Offices of Shane L. Harward.
