Unfortunately, Phoenix is one of the top places where accidental drowning deaths occur. Get in touch with a Phoenix drowning accident attorney at the Law Offices of Michael Cordova to begin working on a wrongful death claim.
It’s heartbreaking to lose a loved one in a drowning accident. People must be held responsible when their careless actions (or inaction) brought about the death of your family member. Regrettably, drowning accidents happen all too often in Phoenix, Arizona. Many of these deaths could have been prevented if not for someone’s carelessness.
If you think that your family member’s drowning death was due to negligence, you might be able to file a wrongful death claim against them. Your claim could bring you and your family justice and financial compensation for what has happened to your loved one. Call a Phoenix drowning accident lawyer to discuss your claim goals and options.
The climate in Phoenix is extremely hot, which means that we have more swimming pools than most other cities. This presents great danger, especially to children or to those who don’t know how to swim. Arizona understands this risk and has put laws in place to prevent pool drowning accidents.
However, not everyone follows the law. Their negligence can cause drowning accidents to occur. For example, if a careless neighbor leaves their pool ungated or the gate open, a curious toddler could fall into the pool.
Your Phoenix drowning accident attorney understands how devastating a drowning death can be. They want to see that you receive justice for this loss.
You might have suffered in many ways. In addition to the overwhelming grief you are experiencing, you are probably trying to figure out how to pay for a funeral and burial. You are probably dealing with lost income due to time you missed from work.
Your settlement should account for all these losses that you’ve been dealing with, both financial losses and non-financial losses. Your grief, mental anguish, and loss of a beloved family member should be accounted for in your settlement amount. The money in your settlement can’t replace your loved one, but it can be put to good use.
You have suffered a great tragedy, and though a personal injury claim can’t bring your family member back to you, it can serve other useful purposes. Your claim could change laws that make pools safer and accidents less likely to occur, such as Arizona’s pool gate requirements.
In addition, your claim can hold the negligent person accountable for their actions and see to it that you and your family are financially compensated for this experience. You can use the money from a settlement to pay for funeral and burial costs and to honor your beloved family member.
