Drowning Accidents in Brevard County

Florida Drowning Accident Statistics

According to the Florida Department of Health, drowning is the top cause of death among children between the ages of one and four, and our state's rate of drowning fatality among young children is the highest in the country. Swimming pool accidents are the most common type of childhood drowning, whereas victims over the age of ten are more likely to drown in a river, lake or in the ocean. The median length of hospitalization for a non-fatal drowning lasts one day and costs a staggering $11,747, while the costs of more extensive treatment can easily range far higher, not to mention the costs associated with ongoing care.

Brevard County Personal Injury Attorney

As early as possible after a drowning accident, contact an attorney from High Stack Gordon Kirbyfor a free initial consultation to determine whether you are entitled to financial compensation. Whether you personally suffered injury in a partial drowning or if you have lost your child to a fatal drowning in a swimming pool or boat accident, we want to help you pursue damages from the party who is at fault.

Our goal is to secure a settlement to cover all your losses, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Pain
  • Suffering
  • Loss of capacity to enjoy life

Recovering a personal injury settlement for a drowning accident depends on proving that the other party is responsible, such as through a failure to provide proper supervision, to install fencing and self-latching gates to keep out unattended children and to provide safety equipment such as life preservers and flotation devices. With evidence such as photographs of the accident scene and testimony from witnesses we will seek to prove that you have been victimized by the other person's negligence, and will fight to maximize the amount you can receive in compensation.
