One of Virginia’s Leading Families of Law
Drowning Accident Attorneys
Lynchburg Drowning Accident Lawyers
One of the top causes of accidental death in the United States is drowning. While most drowning injuries are preventable, they most frequently occur in open bodies of water, swimming pools and spas. One of the most heartbreaking statistics is that 20% of drownings involve children under the age of 15. For every child that drowns, another five receive emergency treatment for non-fatal submersion injuries. Most drownings for children occur in the child’s home pool, while about a third of drownings occur at the home of friends, neighbors, or relatives. Most drownings or near-drownings happen during late spring and summer, with more fatalities in the South and West.

Virginia Premises Liability Law
Under Virginia premises liability law, property owners and managers are expected to keep their area reasonably safe for those who are on it. With respect to pools and other bodies of water, this may mean that they are responsible for having the proper fencing up to prevent young children from entering the property, providing proper warning of certain dangers, having lifeguards on duty, and more.
Common Liability Causes
- Inadequate Safety Equipment
- Improper Signage Around the Premises
- Failure to Have Pools or Natural Waters Properly Fenced or Protected
- Negligent or Poorly Trained Lifeguards, or Poor Lifeguard Supervision
