San Luis Obispo Drowning Accidents Lawyers/Attorneys

Swimming and diving are a great form of exercise, recreation, and relaxation. But if the conditions aren’t right or a body of water isn’t properly maintained, hazards abound. If a loved one drowned, you deserve to be compensated for your emotional suffering. Steven P. Roberts Personal Injury Attorney is a voice for those who have drowned because of dangerous conditions or a property owner’s negligence.

Causes Of Drowning - San Luis Obispo Drowning Accident Law Firm

There are always risks when working or playing around water, but below are some common ways people drown:

  • Insufficient or faulty flotation devices — California law requires you to carry one life jacket for every person onboard your boat. It is often a good idea to have extras as well, in case one isn’t a proper fit or turns out to be defective.
  • Slip and fall — Improperly maintained walking lanes are particularly hazardous when there is water nearby. Someone walking by can slip and fall into the water, becoming disoriented and drowning.
  • Pool drains — One of the most common pool accidents involves a child getting too close to a drain and becoming trapped by the force of the suction. Drains may be difficult to see at the bottom of a pool, and by the time the pool is cleared, the child may be unconscious or dead.

Causes of drowning in Central California

Any drowning incident under these circumstances is a wrongful death. People should expect to be reasonably safe around or in water provided by an establishment, and if they aren’t, it is the property owner’s responsibility. There are always risks when working or playing around water, but below are some common ways people drown:

 

Negligent Lifeguard Supervision

People assume that if a lifeguard is on duty, a drowning person will be noticed, but distraction or understaffing leaves swimmers vulnerable.

Failure To Post Warnings

A common dog bite scenario occurs when a person meeting a new dog moves to pat the dog on the head. Most dogs don’t like this and will either cringe or attack the hand. An owner should redirect you or warn you when you first meet the dog.

Resort And Hotel Accidents 

Pools at resorts and hotels are often busy, with people swimming and walking around. It can be difficult to notice a problem before it’s too late.

Sara Phoekiti

"I was in a car accident last January and started receiving medical bills from the hospital shortly after that. I contacted Steve’s office and immediately he and his staff went to work on my behalf. He explained to me how the process would work and kept me in the loop every step of the way."

Tawnia Burns

"I can’t recommend Steve and his law firm enough. I felt extremely comfortable with the way he handled my case, and I couldn’t be more pleased with the compensation he recovered from me. Getting into a car accident is never fun… but feeling screwed by insurance is even worse. Do yourself a favor and call the personal injuries at Steven P. Roberts!"
