When water takes a loved one away from you

If you live in Texas, you are probably a water lover, especially if getting wet is one of your favorite ways to beat the heat. Whether you prefer to take a dip in the ocean, swim in a lake or lounge in the local swimming pool, you are at risk for drowning and so are your loved ones. Even seasoned swimmers can find themselves in dangerous situations while taking a swim. Sometimes, we forget to be safe and cause our own predicament, but other times, another party's negligence is the real culprit.

For example, suppose your children are swimming at your local pool and the lifeguard falls asleep at his or her post. If a swimmer drowns because of the lifeguard's negligence, the owner/operator of the pool could be held liable. In another example, suppose your local pool does not have a cover over its drain. Pools work by recirculating their water supply, which means that an unprotected drain could create enough suction to trap a swimmer and lead to wrongful death by drowning.

The point we want to make is that not all public or private swimming holes are as safe as you might think. We encourage all Houston residents to ask questions about the safety measures in place at pools or swimming holes before getting in the water. Unfortunately, our attorneys have handled a number of wrongful death drowning cases and would like to save as many Texas residents as possible from suffering similar tragedies.

Please feel free to take a deeper look at our numerous wrongful death topics to learn more about the consequences of improper or absent safety measures in public locations within the state of Texas.
