Helping Accident Victims Focus on Recovery

Drowning Accidents in Lynchburg & Danville

Third-Party Negligence & Drowning Deaths or Swimming Injuries

Pools, waterparks, beaches, lakes, and rivers throughout Virginia are terrific ways for people of all ages to pass the warm summer months. Unfortunately, these areas also bring about the risk of drowning accidents occurring. In fact, swimming accidents and drowning are one of the leading causes of accidental injury and death in the United States, particularly for children. These cases are especially difficult for loved ones. Our firm is sensitive to the feelings and emotional trauma of the family. We offer compassion and support for the loved ones and focused attention on pursuing the swimming accident or drowning case.

While some drowning accidents cannot be attributed to the negligence of a third party, others can. Our Lynchburg premises liability attorneys can help you if you have a case. Call us today at 434.738.2300.

Virginia Premises Liability Law

Under Virginia premises liability law, property owners and managers are expected to keep their area reasonably safe for those who are on it. With respect to pools and other bodies of water, this may mean that they are responsible for having the proper fencing up to prevent young children from entering the property, providing proper warning of certain dangers, having lifeguards on duty, and more.

By failing to properly fix, warn of, or protect against potential risks, property owners and managers may be held liable for drowning deaths and injuries that occur as a direct result. Our team of Lynchburg personal injury attorneys at the office of Randall J. Trost, P.C. have successfully handled numerous drowning accident cases and are ready to help you aggressively pursue the compensation you are entitled to.

Some of the common causes of drowning accidents that are the fault of another party include:

  • Failure to have pools or natural waters properly fenced or protected
  • Negligent or poorly trained lifeguards, or poor lifeguard supervision
  • Improper signage around the premises
  • Inadequate safety equipment
  • Poorly maintained surfaces
