Drowning Accident Lawyers in Round Rock
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), drowning ranks fifth among the leading causes of unintentional injury death in the United States, and every day ten people die from unintentional drowning. Of these, 20% are children aged 14 or younger. For every child that dies from drowning, another five require emergency room care for nonfatal submersion injuries. And more than 50% of the drowning victims that are treated in the emergency room must be hospitalized for injuries such as severe brain damage.

There comes a time when you need someone in your corner that you can trust. Our time came when we knew we needed the advice and counsel of an attorney. The day we walked into Zinda Law Group we knew we were covered.
I did not know what to do. I had never been hurt in a wreck before and this was a major accident that was not my fault. I reached out to Zinda Law Group and they were fantastic, answered all my questions, got me help immediately, and took care of everything!!
There is a reason why this law firm has a 5 star rating. My experience with personal injury attorney Joe Caputo and all of the staff at Zinda Law Group has been excellent... I would definitely recommend Zinda Law Group.
Maria Ciara-Former Client
This is a really great firm! They settled my personal injury case in a year. Throughout the whole process, they were keeping in touch with me and helping me get the best treatment possible. They honestly know what they are doing. It was a pleasure working with these guys.
Everyone was so professional and was very interested in helping me with my issues. They were very upfront and honest about what I could expect.
I contacted Zinda Law Group after getting nowhere on my own with a personal injury case. I am so thankful I did. They took it off my plate and handled everything from appointments, to phone calls, and emails.

Young Children and Drowning
Research has shown that children four years and under have the highest drowning rates in the U.S. with more than 30% drowning in 2009 alone. Drowning as the cause of death among children ages 1-4 is second only to death from congenital birth defects. These young children tend to drown in home swimming pools more than any other area. This often has to do with the attractive nuisance value of a swimming pool.
Many families have pools in their yards for recreation and fun, but these pools also prove to be an attractive nuisance for young children. An attractive nuisance is anything on your property that might attract children into danger or harm and may include pools, spas, ponds, stock ponds, hammocks, skate board ramps and trampolines. Children are particularly susceptible to an attractive nuisance because their self control and reasoning powers are not fully developed and they often don’t realize the danger that it represents. If you have any of these attractive nuisances on your property, it is important to secure them properly to avoid placing a child in harm’s way.
