Was The Property Owner Negligent?
Most swimming pool drownings are preventable accidents that someone failed to prevent. Some of the most common causes or injury or death include:
Failure to supervise children in a pool area
Defective pool design
Defective equipment such as slides or diving boards
Pool fences that fail to meet local codes
Inadequate locking gates
Defective or missing pool covers
Lack of rescue equipment such as a shepherd's hook or life preserver
Our lawyers will review all state and municipal codes that apply to the swimming pool and determine if the property owner did everything he or she should have to prevent injury or drowning. Our law firm has more than 25 years of experience handling personal injury and wrongful death cases.
