Drowning Accidents in Bakersfield
In its latest report on drowning accidents, the Bakersfield Fire Department stated that drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional deaths in children. Around 1,150 children aged 14 and below die in drowning accidents each year and around 5,000 more are seriously injured in near-drownings.
The common injury associated with near-drowning is brain injury, often leading to permanent disability requiring extensive medical treatment.
About half of drowning accidents involving young pre-school age children happen in residential swimming pools. Two-thirds of all drownings happen in the summer months and 40% happen on the weekends.
Pool Owner Negligence
The negligence of swimming pool owners is often a significant factor in swimming pool accidents. As property owners, the pool owners generally have a duty to prevent injury in their premises. When a drowning incident is attributed to pool owner negligence, the injured party or their surviving loved ones may be entitled to compensation under California tort law.
The legal process of claiming compensation is highly complex, requiring the services of an experienced personal injury attorney. Depending on the circumstances of the accident, your attorney can help you recover compensation that can cover costly medical bills for treating and managing accident injuries, or funeral expenses for a loved one.
