PALMDALE: Joshua Boyd, 3, Drowns in Pool at Home on 50th Street East

drowning deathPALMDALE, California (July 5, 2016) –– A 3-year-old boy identified as Joshua Boyd of Palmdale drowned in a backyard swimming pool Monday night at a home in the 37700 block of 50th Street East, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

The child reportedly was attending a Fourth of July party with his mother at the home, but when other attendees moved to the front of the residence to watch the fireworks show his mother discovered he was not there and found him in the swimming pool.

She pulled him out and attempted to save him as firefighters were on their way, but he later died at the hospital.

Police say they do not know how long the child was in the water before he was discovered by his mother.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is heading up the investigation.

“Our deepest condolences go out to the family of this child as they cope with this tragedy,” said Attorney James Johnson.

The loss of a loved one in a tragedy such as this one may have been preventable. The owners of swimming pools are required to have security fencing surrounding it with child-proof locks on gates accessing the water.  The owner may be held liable if someone is injured or drowns in a backyard swimming pool that is not secure as required under California laws.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat.

Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.
