Drowning Accidents

Drowning is the fifth leading cause of unintentional injury death in the United States – Over 3,000 people perish from drowning every year. Tragically, Drowning is the leading cause of death for children under the age of four. Among those 1-14, fatal drowning remains the second-leading cause of unintentional injury deaths behind motor vehicle crashes.

Sometimes drowning accidents are tragic accidents, but other times, improper supervision by child care providers, lack of lifeguards, or other forms of negligence cause tragic harm. The most common causes of drowning accidents are:

  • Distracted caretakers
  • Untrained lifeguards
  • Overcrowded swimming areas
  • Broken or missing emergency equipment
  • Lack of water clarity
  • Failure to install fences or barriers
  • Defective gates or latches
  • Failure to meet industry standards
  • Defective equipment or pool design
  • Lack of supervision
  • Failure to install fences or barriers

Once a person begins drowning, they must be rescued in 20 to 60 seconds. In the case of young children, they may struggle for even less time before they become exhausted. When a drowning occurs, the following parties may be at fault:

  • Hotels
  • Recreational Centers
  • Homeowners Associations
  • Private Premises Owners
  • Non-Profit Organizations
