Cincinnati Drowning Lawyers

By far the leading cause of death in boating accidents in the United States is drowning, and it is one of the leading causes of accidental death worldwide. The statistics become even direr when sampling only children, as in the United States drowning trails only motor vehicle crashes as the leading cause of death in children 12 years of age or younger. While boating laws and life jacket regulations have drastically reduced the likelihood of boating accidents resulting in drowning deaths, there is little protection against the reckless actions of other boaters.

If you have lost a loved one in a drowning accident resulting from the negligence of another boater, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, emotional trauma, and other concerns. Contact the sympathetic and experienced Cincinnati personal injury attorneys of Stepleton Dugan, LLC, at 513-321-7733 to schedule a free consultation regarding your legal rights and options.

Drowning Accidents

Drowning incidents rarely occur simply because an individual does not have strong swimming skills, but instead usually result from another incident which can put even the most skilled swimmer at risk. The following are the five primary kinds of accidents that result in drowning fatalities:

  • Capsizing
  • Flooding or swamping
  • Collisions with other vessels
  • Collisions with fixed objects
  • Skier Mishaps

Drowning is an unfortunately common occurrence, and the ones who are left to cope with the loss of a loved one face a variety of significant challenges.
