Beach Drowning & Accidents

Sustaining injuries on the beach is the last thing any individual expects on a balmy summer day. However, there are a number of hazards in the ocean water, and on land which can result in an injury or accident.

When a beach lacks suitable staff or not maintained properly, the owner can be held liable if an accident on the beach results from the negligence of the owner.

An individual who gets hurt during his or her visit to the beach should contact an attorney immediately to inquire whether or not a full compensation is entitled to him or her to cover medical costs and damages.

Not all drowning accidents on the beach are the result of negligence, but it is usually a good idea to consider options, and whether the occurrence could’ve been avoided if the property owner took necessary measures to ensure the beach was safe.

Common Injuries on the Beach

Injuries commonly sustained on the beach include the following: sustained injuries from boating, water skiing, or operating a motorized aquatic vehicle that causes an accident; lacerations causes by beach debris or broken glass, due to poor maintenance; drownings; surfing accidents without lifeguards present, which can result in drowning; failure to warn of hazardous conditions including significant drop-offs in depth and under-currents; and beach accidents due to improperly maintained or unsafe structures near or on the beach, like playground equipment.

If there are little to no lifeguards properly trained on a public beach, it can cause a drowning if someone sustains an injury, and struggle to swim to shore.

Lifeguards are trained to save lives if patrons happen to get hurt on land; they are a crucial part of safety on the beach.

The occurrence could’ve been prevented if a lifeguard was available in many beach-related accidents.

If you sustained injuries on the beach, and believe your injury could’ve been prevented easily, it is crucial to contact an experienced personal injury attorney to review accident details of your lawsuit.

Often, it is the case that the catastrophic nature of sustained injuries on the beach can be reduced considerably, or accidents could be wholly avoided if owners of property make some adjustments to the maintenance of the beach, or the staff availability, and level of provided training to the staff.

If a court of law deems that injuries were sustained due to negligence, then you may be entitled to compensation damages in the full amount of costs of pain and suffering, medical treatment, and any loss of wages which may be the result of recovery.
