The risk of drowning in the United States

Posted under Uncategorized

Drowning is a common cause of death in the United States, especially for children. It can lead to death because liquid enters the lungs and prevents oxygen. 

In the United States, drowning is the fifth likely cause of accidental death according to government statistics. While it cannot be absolutely prevented, individuals can take a number of steps to decrease their chances of being involved in a drowning accident. 

These steps include wearing life vests in lakes and keeping pools protected from children. If you have lost a loved one in a drowning accident, contact the Kenosha personal injury lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, at 800-242-2874.
