Near-drowning accidents are particularly dangerous because of the risk of brain injury and later complications from the accident. When a victim is denied oxygen for more than a few minutes, the body begins to shut down and irreversible brain damage can occur. After the accident, a victim may be left to face life-changing injuries. Without experienced legal representation, they may be unable to recover the compensation they deserve.
Insurance companies often seek to avoid paying the maximum amount your case deserves, since they are looking to save money. If you do not know the value of your claim or how to negotiate for the right settlement amount, you may lose out on damages that you are owed. A personal injury attorney can fight for you to ensure that you receive every penny you deserve.
Sometimes cases are denied due to a technicality or a mistake. Your lawyer can ensure that your claims are handled correctly and that all forms are completed with the pertinent information. If your case is denied due to a mistake or a wrong claim by your insurance company, your attorney can also work to make sure you claim is reconsidered and addressed correctly.
Evidence and negligence can also be important considerations in near-drowning claims. It can be difficult to prove that another party is at fault for your injuries. Your lawyer will be able to help you gather evidence that can be used to support your claim. In addition to evidence, your attorney can help you identify who may be at fault for the accident. There can be a number of parties, depending on the specifics of your case. Pool operators, manufacturers, employers, and other parties may be liable for what happened to you or your loved one.
