Electric Shock Drowning
The attorneys at O’Brien Batten & Kirtley, PLLC were some of the first attorneys in the United States to pursue Electric Shock Drowning claims on behalf of families against marinas.
Electric Shock Drowning is a little known to the public but completely preventable tragedy that occurs every summer on lakes and rivers across the United States. Most commonly, it occurs to children or adults who are swimming off the back of boats in lake marinas or who are swimming near a dock that has electricity.
Despite the fact that there have been several deaths from Electric Shock Drowning, many marinas and docks refuse to take precautions to prevent these senseless acts from occurring. When a marina’s negligence causes a death or injury, it should be held accountable. If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of Electric Shock Drowning or other marina negligence, please consider contacting us today for more information.
