Raleigh Drowning Accident Lawyers

Seeking Justice After a Drowning or Near Drowning Accident

Our Raleigh injury attorneys at Edwards Kirby have a national reputation for representing victims of swimming pool, boating, and diving accidents. Our attorneys won the largest product liability verdict in the swimming pool industry’s history after successfully representing the family of a young girl who was catastrophically injured at a neighborhood pool.

John Edwards and David Kirby were awarded the American Association for Justice national public service award in 1997 for their work on behalf of a child who had her intestines pulled out after being trapped by suction on a defective pool drain. The decision led to widespread changes throughout the country in the standards for swimming pool drains.

For experienced and dedicated representation in a case involving a swimming or other water-related accident, call (919) 335-7005. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your needs.

Types of Swimming Pool & Water Accidents

Edwards Kirby is recognized among the best possible advocates in a serious personal injury lawsuit or wrongful death claim involving circumstances such as:

  • Unsafe or unsupervised swimming pools and spas in hotels, resorts, apartment complexes, and recreation centers
  • Injuries and deaths caused by inattentive or poorly trained lifeguards
  • Drowning or severe injuries in quarries, gravel pits, and ponds
  • Diving accidents caused by improper training, defective equipment, negligent supervision, or unsafe conditions

While drowning is the injury that most people connect with accidents on or in the water, other serious injuries can occur in boating accidents or diving mishaps. These include brain damage caused by extended periods of insufficient oxygen and serious spinal cord, back, or neck injuries suffered while diving.

If you were seriously injured or lost a loved one in a drowning or near drowning accident, we can help. Call a Raleigh drowning accident lawyer at (919) 335-7005 today.
