According to the U. S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention, drownings are the leading cause of death for children ages 1-4. On average, 390 children drown every year in the United States.

In addition, there are 5,200 swimming pool or spa related emergency room visits for child submersion injuries. Half of submersion accidents that require CPR result in significant permanent brain damage. Medical costs for drowning victims can be extremely high. Severely brain damaged victims can spend months in hospitals and rehabilitation facilities and incur hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical costs.

Although most drownings occur in swimming pools, that is not the only drowning hazard. Retention ponds have become commonplace in apartment and housing complexes as well as other areas. Retention ponds are designed to hold storm water runoff from buildings, parking lots and highways. Most communities require that swimming pools been enclosed by a fence or barrier. However, in most areas, there are no similar laws regarding retention ponds or other bodies of water.

If your child or other loved one has suffered injury or death by drowning, contact the personal injury and wrongful death attorneys at Clark, Perdue & List.
