1) Water accidents. Many deaths happen because of swimming pool drowning. It only takes a few minutes before a child may drown. This often occurs because of inexperienced lifeguards, murky water, lack of supervision and malfunctioning equipment in swimming pools and water parks. Head injuries sustained in a swimming pool may cause a child to drown.

2) Motor vehicle accidents. San Antonio, Texas car accident lawyers can tell you that motor vehicle accidents can be dangerous for any passenger. But child lack the weight, size and physical strength that adults typically have. This can make a child more vulnerable to a wrongful death accident.
