Drowning accidents frequently result from negligence of individuals near, on, or in a body of water. Although water activities are popular for family and friends, they can also be extremely dangerous. But when a watercraft operator is negligent, whether drunk, speeding, or failing to follow water safety rules, the situation is extremely dangerous for others. There are also incidents in which a public or private pool poses a danger to either children or adults.

A minor error in judgment can easily knock someone overboard, and unfortunately, permanent brain damage is a common outcome in such accidents. Swimming pools can be hazardous for both children and adults when surfaces are too slick, or a lifeguard on duty fails to notice a swimmer in distress. Many young lives are lost every year as children succumb to silent drowning.
