There are many hazards that can cause a drowning accident. While swimming can be inherently dangerous, oftentimes drownings are caused by the negligence of others. In those cases where the drowning was caused by someone's negligence, certain members of the victim's family may have standing to bring a wrongful death claim. While it is impossible to heal the wounds of a death, a civil lawsuit is oftentimes the only remedy to ensure that a negligent party is held accountable.

Drowning Accidents can happen in a variety of settings. These can include water parks, hotels, apartment complexes or private pools. Oftentimes, these accidents occur when when hair, clothing, or a part of a person's body becomes stuck in a pool drain. Sometimes, inadequate supervision can cause these accidents. Other times, external factors, such as the consumption of alcohol can play a role. If a person has been over served alcohol, there may be dram shop liability.
