Too many people are quick to blame children in cases where a child wanders into a pool and drowns. Why people are surprised that kids wander is beyond us. But as Flagstaff, Arizona personal injury attorneys, we see this attitude time again.
Perhaps an adult should have kept a better eye on the child; or perhaps the pool owner should have done a better job of ensuring the pool was safe. However, it is unnecessary to blame the child when these kinds of accidents do occur.
In cases of drowning accidents, it can be overwhelming for the family to determine whether or not to file a personal injury lawsuit. The fact of the matter is that a lawsuit isn’t going to undo the tragedy and it may not be an appropriate choice for every family.
However, under the law in Arizona, there is a limited amount of time in which such drowning accident lawsuits can be filed. So if a family is considering filing such a suit, they need to know that it must be done within a set period, which can oftentimes be less than six months.
If a loved one has been killed in a child drowning accident in Arizona due to someone else’s negligence, and you’re not sure whether you want to file a lawsuit, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
