Swimming Accidents and Drowning Cases

Swimming pool accidents, diving accidents and drowning incidents occur quite frequently throughout the U.S., particularly involving children. A person may be seriously injured and may be left with lasting brain injuries from a swimming pool accident, and a victim may even lose his or her life. If you or your child has sustained injuries in a swimming pool accident, it is important that you understand your legal options in filing a personal injury claim. Additionally, if you have lost a loved one, you may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit for your loss.

An experienced personal injury attorney, Scott Distasio can offer you a free initial case evaluation to discuss your particular case and what he can do to assist you. Depending on the case, it may be a negligent lifeguard, property owner or daycare facility that can be held responsible for your accident. By investigating your particular case and establishing the cause of the accident, Attorney Distasio can work to prove that the negligent party should be held liable.

Swimming Pool Accidents and Premises Liability Claims

Pool owners and many property owners are responsible for the safety and well-being of the patrons using their pool facilities. Pool drownings are common for young children and adults with health problems because owners have neglected their responsibility to ensure safety on the premises. In situations like this, a wrongful death claim may arise if there is sufficient evidence to suggest that the owner or operator of the pool facility was at fault for not ensuring sufficient safety or disregarded the necessary safety measures needed.

Accidents resulting in injury or death in or near a pool may be caused by the following:

  • Lack of life preserver on premises
  • Slip, trip, and fall hazards
  • Lack of supervision when a life guard was to be "on duty"
  • Electrocution due to pool water interacting with a conduit
  • Low water levels causing injuries to users
  • Improper warning signs or caution provided to users
  • Broken or damaged pool components that led to injury or death
  • Falling objects in or around the pool
  • Broken glass in or near the pool

Swimming pool accidents often fall under premises liability claims because they may occur on another person's property, such as at a friend's house, at a public pool, hotel, apartment, or at a gym. Accidents may occur at one's own home as well. Property owners have a legal duty to take action to reasonably ensure their property is safe from hazardous conditions, and an unfenced swimming pool may be such an example.
