Injuries From Near Drowning
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, for every child that drowns, another four will require emergency medical attention for near-drowning injuries. The extent of a child or adult's near-drowning injuries can depend on a number of factors including the length of time under water, the temperature of the water, the amount of water aspirated, the type of water and the victim's pre-accident medical condition. At least one third of survivors will sustain moderate to severe brain injuries including memory problems, learning disabilities and permanent loss of basic functioning. Depending upon the severity of the injuries, your loved one may need full-time nursing care, occupational therapy, cognitive therapy, physical therapy and other medical care. The financial burdens associated with this level of medical care can be overwhelming to a family already trying to cope with the significant emotional impact of the accident.Near-Drowning Accident Injury Attorneys
