What is Dry Drowning? Who is Potentially Liable?

Jul 30, 2018 | Categories: Personal Injury

There’s another form of injury related to pools and that’s what’s been dubbed dry drowning or secondary drowning. The unsuspecting victim, either from immersion, being dunked, ingest water into their lungs. The interruption in the way that your lungs function will deprive the body of oxygen and can lead to death. If it was at a swim school or a locality where there was the individuals who were taking part in the swimming, the structured setting may not have had in place proper procedures to protect the individuals around the water.

In other incidents if the individual’s brought the hospital, and if the doctor’s not careful in taking that appropriate and accurate history, doing a needed a testing, then the secondary drowning can still occur. That’s when a family should call a law firm, a law firm with experience in these kinds of things to help them through this process.
