Losing a child may be the most devastating experience a parent may have. Losing a child in a preventable accident is especially difficult because the death could have been avoided if everyone had acted with the requisite amount of care for the situation. If you have lost a child because someone else was negligent, you deserve to recover for your loss. Though no amount of money will ever bring your child back, you may be compensated for any medical bills, funeral expenses, and pain and suffering you experienced from your loss.
Fatal Hot Tub Accidents
The Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) reports that hundreds of children drown every year in hot tubs. The most common reasons for accidental drowning in hot tubs include:
Suction from drains is a bigger problem for small children than one may imagine and has become the subject of legislation in recent years. The Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Act was enacted after a young girl drowned after she became entrapped under water due to the extreme suction from a hot tub drain. The Act requires all hot tub owners to have proper drain covers that meet certain safety standards. Drain covers may often become brittle or crack due to the hot water in a hot tub. Therefore, all hot tub owners should regularly check their drain covers to make sure they meet the safety standards required by law. If a person fails to keep up their drain covers or comply with the law and you child is injured or killed as a result, the negligent hot tub owner should compensate you and your family for the loss of your child.
