Filing Lawsuits For Fatal Drownings

Attorney Kevin Biniazan has experience representing families of wrongful deaths as an experienced drowning accident attorney. Kevin recently highlighted when the families of a deceased loved one could file a lawsuit against a negligent resort for drownings on their property. 

"Drownings often occur due to the negligence of the resort owner. A resort owner has a legal obligation to provide a safe environment for its guest and staff. This may include having sufficient signage detailing hazards, necessary barriers to prevent falls off of decks and seawalls, and adequate supervision. Failure to provide appropriate security for the safety of their guests could land them liable for injuries or death sustained on their property. If the resort was aware of possible dangers but failed to rectify them, a court could deem them negligent."

"Wrongful death lawsuits can apply to drowning incidents that have led to the death of a victim. The surviving family members should retain a personal injury attorney to file a wrongful death lawsuit for drowning. The attorney will need to prove that the victim died due to the resort's negligence or intent to harm. The family may receive compensation for pain and suffering, medical bills, and lost wages by filing a civil suit."
