Drowning Accidents & Legal Wrongful Death Claims

If you have lost a loved one to a drowning accident, it may be possible for you to recover compensation in a wrongful death suit. If another person was legally liable for the accident, it could be grounds for such a lawsuit.

A wrongful death suit does not mean or assume that someone intended for another person to drown. This would be the basis of a criminal homicide suit. Instead, if someone’s reckless or careless behavior led to a drowning accident, the victim’s family can potentially recover compensation.

A wrongful death suit for a drowning accident victim can be filed when another person unintentionally causes the drowning or because whoever is responsible for the pool or waterway was negligent in their duties.

Boating accidents are a common cause of drowning accidents. If the driver of a boat or Jet Ski causes another person to drown they may be held liable for the death which can mean a civil wrongful death suit and even criminal charges if the driver was intoxicated by drugs or alcohol.

If you have lost a loved one, the Fort Lauderdale wrongful death attorneys at Rosenberg & Rosenberg, P.A. can review your case with you and press your claim for compensation in court so you can obtain the financial compensation you deserve during this difficult time.
