What steps should I take after a drowning accident?
After a drowning accident, it’s very important that the following steps are taken quickly. First, you need to make sure that the drowning was reported to the local government agency. This typically will be the police department or local sheriff’s office. It’s also important that the accident is reported at the facility where it happened. If it was at an apartment complex or hotel, notify the manager. If it was at a camp, notify whoever is in charge.
It’s also important that you hire an experienced lawyer that’s involved in swimming pool accident cases. What they can do is make sure that the evidence is preserved. One of the things to look at is what the level of water was. Was the pool properly marked? Were there lifeguards involved? Is there any video that shows the accident? An experienced lawyer who’s handled swimming accidents can make sure this gets done and the proper experts are hired to do additional investigation.
