As soon as the days get longer and warmer, people start heading to the water. Swimming pools, lakes, the ocean—they all provide a place to cool off and have some fun. Entire families gather by the poolside or shore, and sometimes people can be lost in the crowds. It can take only a moment before someone goes under the water and doesn’t come back up right away, all before anyone has even realized that person is gone.
Drowning accidents can be devastating to a family, especially because they can happen so fast. One second your loved one is swimming happily beside you, and the next second they can be seriously injured, or worse. If you have been injured in a drowning accident or a lost a family member in one, you should talk to a lawyer immediately.

Accidents that happen in water can cause many types of injuries, including brain injuries, broken bones,
soft tissue injuries, concussions, and
spinal cord injuries. In the worst cases, they can even cause death.
