The risk of near-drowning accidents in Las Vegas is higher than in other cities since there are so many pools throughout Vegas – at casinos and resorts, public swimming pools, parks, health centers, private pools, and even assisted living centers. Drowning accidents can be very complex to navigate and determine who is at fault, which is why you need a drowning accident lawyer who has the experience needed to reach a successful resolution.
Who is Responsible for Your Drowning Accident?
When determining who is at fault following a drowning accident, it is important to look at the factors that lead to the accident. In accidental drowning cases, our drowning accident lawyers will determine if negligence was involved in the accident to determine fault.
Negligent behavior varies depending on the case but common instances of negligence surrounding drowning accidents include:
- Faulty pool gate or fence
- Failure to adhere to pool fence regulations
- Poor supervision
- Over-serving alcohol at a resort
Our legal team will complete a thorough investigation to determine the factors that caused the accident. Following the investigation, our drowning accident lawyers will build your case and hold negligent parties accountable.
Common Causes of Drowning Accidents
Drowning accidents can be caused by many different reasons from poor pool safety regulations to ignoring pool fence regulations but some of the most common causes of Las Vegas drowning accidents include:
Unsafe Pool Surface Areas
Unsafe pool surface areas can include anything from broken or missing concrete, pool deck tiles, or other pool surface areas that need to be repaired. These unsafe surface areas can lead to slip and fall accidents around the pool.
Electrical accidents in pools can lead to a wide range of injuries and accidents including accidental drowning. Electrical problems that can cause accidents include broken lights, pool filters not working properly due to electrical issues, and electrocution.
Broken or Defective Equipment
Broken or defective equipment is another common cause of Las Vegas drowning accidents. This can include anything from broken diving boards and other pool equipment to broken drain covers or stair railings.
Lack of Proper Signage
Without proper signage, drowning accidents are much more likely to occur. Signs are used to warn swimmers about potential hazards and safety measures. Without proper signs, the chance of a drowning accident is much higher.
No Lifeguard on Duty
Not having a lifeguard on duty or improper supervision from the lifeguard leads to accidents that often could have been avoided with the proper supervision.
Compensation for Drowning Accidents
Victims of an accidental drowning or near-drowning accident may require significant medical treatment to treat their injuries. Our drowning accident lawyers will fight for you to get the compensation you deserve to help pay medical bills and other expenses.

“I had a small request for some legal advice and Edward M Bernstein & Associates more than delivered! I was not only given advice but the team actually took the issue head on for me and I was left worry free.
In a few days everything was settled and things afterwards could not have been more thorough. I received e-mails laying out every detail of the action the team took and what responsibilities I still had in resolving everything on my end. I really appreciated the “can do” attitude they exuded from the start and the professionalism they continued to demonstrate. Highly recommend Ed Bernstein & Associates.” -Roger S. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
