Sadly, the Young Law Firm realizes that drowning accidents are not all that uncommon in Marietta Ga. We understand that many families spend their summer leisure time in hot tubs and swimming pools, rivers, and lakes. However, drowning accidents can change a family’s life forever. Contact a drowning accident attorney.

Statistics shows that drowning is the second highest leading cause of death in young children, particularly those that are aged one to fourteen years old.

Any swimming area can be a dangerous place. In fact, thousands of youngsters are brain damaged due to defective pool gates, defective pool drains, negligent life-guarding, defective swimming pool fencing, inadequate supervision or defective pool pumps. It is worth noting that a non-fatal hot-tub or swimming pool accident can also be life-changing. The person may be paralyzed or suffer spinal cord injury.

Attorney Diana Whipkey Young is experienced at representing victims of swimming pool accidents.
