Corpus Christi Drowning Attorney
Helping Swimming Pool Accident and Drowning Victims
Drowning and near drowning accidents are among the most dangerous types of incidents that cause harm to adults and children alike. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it is estimated that approximately 10 people die from accidental drowning each day. Drowning is the second leading cause of death for children between the ages of 1 and 14, and it is the sixth leading cause of unintentional death for people of all ages. This is a serious problem in Corpus Christi and in other parts of Texas. At the J. Guerra Law Firm, we are committed to helping families of drowning victims and those who have been seriously injured in near drowning accidents.
With a Corpus Christi drowning lawyer from our firm to handle your case, you can feel confident that we will thoroughly investigate the matter to determine who may be held liable. It may be the owner or operator of the property where the incident occurred (such as when pool operator negligence takes place), the manufacturer of a defective pool drain or filtration system, or perhaps a negligent lifeguard who was on duty at the time of the accident. In some cases, water-related injuries and deaths are due to violations of the Virginia Graeme Baker Act, which sets certain pool and drain safety standards. By carefully analyzing the evidence at hand, we can determine liability and the fair value of your claim.
