Cincinnati Drowning Lawyers

In the United States, more than 3,600 people die every year as a result of unintentional drowning – an average of ten drowning deaths every day. A quarter of all of these victims are children younger than the age of 15, and for every child that dies from drowning, four more are hospitalized as a result. Even non-fatal drowning can result in permanent brain damage, with complications such as memory loss, learning disabilities, and even coma.

If you or a loved one has suffered a drowning incident or injury, contact a Cincinnati swimming pool injury attorney at Stepleton Dugan, LLC today at 513-321-7733, and we can evaluate your case in order to determine who is responsible and whether you are owed reimbursement for any injuries.

Common Causes of Drowning

Men are four times more likely to die in drowning accidents than women in the United States, and children are also at a high risk. Some of the most common causes of drowning include:

  • Bathtub Drowning (Most common cause in children younger than 1 year)
  • Swimming pools
  • Lack of supervision around a body of water
  • Alcohol consumption
  • Failure to use a life vest
  • Underlying illnesses such as seizure disorder or asthma

A swimming pool can be a fun, healthy environment for both children and adults. But when improper supervision, negligence, or reckless behavior takes place, injuries can happen. In a swimming pool, even the most minor injury may result in someone drowning, meaning the strictest standards of care are necessary. If someone fails to live up to that standard of care, they may be held liable for any injuries that result.
