Drowning Lawsuits

Drowning Lawsuits


The statistics are frightening.

Every day in the U.S., 10 people will die from drowning. It ranks as the fifth leading cause of unintentional injury deaths in America.

About one in five who die from drowning are under the age of 14. And for every one of those children, another five receive treatment at emergency departments for non fatal submersion injuries, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Those tragic facts are made even more somber when you realize that, in many cases, the injuries and deaths came as a result of someone else’s negligence, whether it was from a defective product or an inattentive lifeguard at a community pool, lake, beach or amusement park.

Ross Feller Casey, a leading Philadelphia law firm with a national reputation for winning landmark results, has an impressive record of successfully litigating swimming and drowning cases. Victories by Ross Feller Casey attorneys include:

  • $10 million recovered for the family of a girl who drowned at a swimming facility.
  • $6.6 million verdict for the family of an 8-year-old boy who drowned at a summer camp after lifeguards abandoned their post.
  • $5.5 million recovered for the family of a 15-year-old boy who drowned in a hotel swimming pool. As a result of the case, the hotel agreed to change its policy regarding positions and duties of lifeguards to ensure that such a tragedy doesn’t occur again.
