Palm Springs Drowning Accident Attorney
The state of California is well known for having sunshine everyday of the year. During summer months, the weather is particularly hot and drives people to the ocean, lakes and swimming pools in droves. The water is a great place for people to cool down while soaking in the sun. However, it can also be very dangerous if people are not safe while swimming, boating or using other types of water crafts. When people are not careful in the water, they place themselves at great risk for drowning. While you may not think that drowning occurs all that often. The truth is, in California and Palm Springs, drowning accidents are quite common.
Sometimes, drowning accidents can be attributed to people making poor choices. For example, people who choose to swim in the ocean when currents are very strong are making a poor choice and may drown due to their own bad judgment. Other times, drowning accidents result from third party negligence. When drowning accidents can be attributed to third party negligence, like cases involving boating accidents, it is always a good idea for victims and/or their families to consider their legal options.
Drowning Accidents & Personal Injury Law
In cases where drowning accidents were caused by other peoples' negligence or recklessness, victims and their families may be allowed to file a personal injury claim. Simply put, a personal injury claim is a type of legal action that allows accident victims to seek compensation for their injuries. Victims may also request compensation for their medical expenses, lost income and pain and suffering. In order to ensure that their personal injury claims are successful, it is in victims' best interests to obtain legal help from a seasoned Palm Springs personal injury lawyer at Cohn & Swartzon, P.C.
