Swimming Pool Accidents

poolCOMPENSATION FOR SWIMMING POOL ACCIDENT VICTIMS

The Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that as many as 300 children younger than five drown in swimming pools and spas each year, and at least ten times as many suffer injuries that require emergency treatment. All pools and spas should be surrounded by barriers with self-closing and latching gates, and steps must be taken to prevent the hazards caused by faulty drain covers, including drowning and evisceration caused by powerful suction.

If you have been involved in a swimming pool accident, our New York swimming pool accident attorneys can help you seek compensation for your injuries.

Our law firm has a long history of standing up for accident victims and a track record of multimillion dollar results for our clients.

ACCIDENTS IN AND OUT OF THE POOL

Swimming pool injuries and deaths are most often the result of improper supervision. A lifeguard may take a break, during which a drowning or near-drowning occurs. Perhaps a lifeguard was on duty, but failed to promptly stop horseplay ultimately resulting in an accident. Sometimes children and adults get caught in swimming pool filters and drains that are not capped properly.

Serious swimming pool accidents can also occur outside of the pool, such as slipping and falling on a wet surface or getting cut on broken glass or other sharp objects.

Whether a swimming pool accident happens at a hotel, resort, school, gym, park or someone’s backyard, swimming pool accident victims can seek compensation for their injuries. Our New York swimming pool accident attorneys will fight for the compensation you deserve for your swimming pool accident claim.
