In tragic drowning accidents, it’s not always the property owner who bears the responsibility for negligence. In some cases, the negligence of third parties can contribute to or directly cause these devastating incidents. Defective products and other factors can play a significant role in near-drownings and drownings. In this blog post, we will discuss third-party negligence in drowning accidents and how the experienced legal team at Kelley Law Firm can assist you in seeking justice and compensation.
Various factors can contribute to drowning accidents and increase the risk of such incidents. Defective safety equipment, such as life rings or flotation devices with design flaws or malfunctioning components, can compromise the ability to provide effective assistance in water emergencies. Inadequate or missing signage, including insufficient warning signs or unclear instructions, can create confusion and heighten the risk of drowning accidents. Pool or spa defects, such as missing or faulty railings, malfunctioning shut-off valves, or other safety-related issues, can jeopardize the well-being of swimmers.
