Oklahoma City Drowning Lawyers

Swimming or relaxing around the pool is a great way to spend time with family and friends, but it can also be an extremely dangerous activity when pool owners fail to provide proper supervision and safety measures. Under these conditions, even the most experienced swimmers are susceptible to the risk of drowning.

Drowning accidents can take a terrible toll on a family. Whether or not a drowning incident is fatal, the consequences can be devastating. It is important to seek justice and fair compensation if a fatal or nonfatal drowning accident involved the negligence of another party. Please contact the Oklahoma City drowning lawyers at the Abel Law Firm by calling (405) 239-7046 to discuss your legal options.

Drowning Dangers

Not all drowning incidents are fatal, but every drowning has the potential for serious consequences. In a drowning, the victim suffers from a lack of oxygen. This can cause significant brain damage and even a loss of basic functions. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the following groups of people are at highest risk for drowning:

  • In the United States, males are almost four times more likely to be involved in a drowning
  • Children of all ages are at risk of drowning, especially those ages younger than four years old
  • African Americans and American Indians have statistically higher rates of drowning incidents than other groups

Drowning affects people of all ages and levels of experience. It is important to take the proper safety measures around pools and other bodies of water. If pool owners fail to take necessary safety precautions, they may be liable for any injuries that follow.
