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.
If you have lost a loved one or had a serious injury accident involving
a swimming pool, boating, waterpark or other drowning accident, we urge
you to get in touch with the
NYC personal injury lawyers
at Lurie, Ilchert, MacDonnell & Ryan LLP immediately.

Our New York City injury attorneys are known throughout the State of New
York as a respected and prominent law firm, and we have recovered over
$500 million in damages over our years in practice. If the person operating
a boat has been consuming alcohol, he or she is endangering all passengers
in the boat, as well as all others who are also on the water.
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.

and full compensation.
