In Florida Water is Everywhere – The Importance of Swimming Lessons

The Florida Department of Health’s website reports that our state loses more children under 5 to drowning than any other state. “Annually, in Florida, enough children to fill three or four classrooms drown and do not live to see their fifth birthday.”
With the common goal of promoting the importance of learn-to-swim and water safety, our firm has continued to support Jacksonville’s community organizations to bring awareness to the importance of water safety and learning to swim.
Every day, we at Terrell • Hogan, represent victims of personal injury and wrongful death as they seek justice, but helping prevent accidents and injuries is also a constant focus.  Lawsuits we have pursued for deserving victims have prompted safety changes, but that came after the accidents and injuries happened.  We think it’s important to try to find ways to prevent injuries and wrongful deaths before they happen.  That’s why we feel it’s important to help spread the message about the importance of learning to swim so they can safely enjoy Jacksonville’s parks and waterways. Because knowing how to swim and be safe around water makes enjoying Jacksonville’s great amenities even better.
