Consequences of Near Drowning
When a person comes close to drowning, it is classified as a near drowning event. In a near drowning, a person usually becomes unconscious or takes in large amounts of water. A near drowning is extremely serious as the effects of loss of oxygen and water inhalation can lead to a number of permanent health problems or even death.
Far too many people experience this brush with death due to another person’s reckless or irresponsible actions. At [firm-name], our Fort Lauderdale accident attorneys believe that anyone who suffers a near drowning due to someone else’s irresponsibility should fight for the compensation which they may be due.

Possible Health Problems from Near Drowning Accidents
Unfortunately, a near drowning experience usually yields numerous negative repercussions for the victim, which can include:
- Permanent brain damage
- Heart damage
- Pulmonary edema
- Acute respiratory distress syndrome
The emotional, physical, and financial costs of these health complications can be incredibly high, and if a near drowning accident occurred because of someone else’s wrongdoing, the accident victim should not have to cover these costs on his or her own.
