Swimming Pool Accident Attorneys

Few summer activities match the excitement of jumping into the pool. Unfortunately, this top source of recreation can also be a huge cause of tragedy. Evidence compiled by the USA Swimming Foundation reveals that at least 148 children under the age of 15 died due to drowning between Memorial Day and Labor Day in 2018. Young children are especially at risk, with research cited by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission listing drowning as the top unintentional cause of death for those between 1 and 4 years old. Pool hazards aren't limited to children — adult tragedies are also far too common.

Common Swimming Pool Injuries

While many people think of poor swimming skills as a chief precursor to drowning, pool-based injuries often result from design flaws or low-quality equipment. The following are a few of the most alarming pool injuries involving negligence:

  • Slip-and-fall injuries such as sprains or broken bones
  • Concussions or spinal injuries from diving into unexpectedly shallow pools
  • Lacerations from sharp edges or rough surfaces
  • Skin irritation from pool chemicals
  • Entrapment via drain suction

Causes of Swimming Pool Injuries

Opportunities for injury abound in and around swimming pools. Many pools lack the basic protections needed to keep swimmers safe. Examples of safety hazards include:

  • Lack of fences or other barriers
  • Faulty ladders
  • Excessively shallow deep ends
  • Lack of anti-entrapment devices
  • Loose tiles or other pool deck hazards

While many accidents occur in backyard pools, public pools aren't necessarily safer. Often, public facilities possess not only the design defects highlighted above but also inattentive lifeguards and other negligent staff members.

Why Work With a Swimming Pool Accident Attorney?

In an environment rife with danger, it can be difficult to determine the exact origin of tragic accidents. A skilled swimming pool attorney can help you determine what, exactly, prompted the incident and who should be held accountable. Your swimming pool accident lawyer can draw on evidence or witness testimony that you might struggle to access alone. With your attorney's help, it may be possible to recover significant damages addressing:

  • Medical care, including hospital expenses and long-term rehabilitation
  • Loss of wages due to time taken off work for recovery
  • Pain and suffering, which could impact your quality of life both now and far into the future

Unbelievably organized, responsive and probably the most effective process-oriented group of people I've ever seen. Their preparation for mediation and trial is beyond comprehensive. Across two cases and 3 years, not once did anything fall between the cracks. Everyone I came into contact with exemplifies professionalism; they quickly resolved insurance issues and spent time educating me about everything affecting my cases.
Georgia J.
General Injury
It has been an amazing experience with your law firm. I will be happy to refer any of my family and friends to your law firm. I am very thankful to Sabrina Thornburg and Andrew Felix for everything that they have done on my case. Sabrina kept in touch with me to let me know how everything was going and I am very happy with the service that she and Andrew provided. Your slogan really is true, you are for the people. Thank you.
Antonia C.
Slip and Fall
I was very happy with the communication between the legal counsel and myself. If I had any questions I could leave it if not directly and I would have an answer within 24 hours by either email or a courtesy phone call. Also, the quick resolution of the matter was something I appreciate very much. Needless to say the result was more than expected.
Todd E.
Homeowners Insurance
I originally hired a different law firm after being involved in a multi-car accident on the interstate, but after a few conversations, arguments, and showing me other cases were more important than mine, I called and hired Morgan & Morgan! That was one of the best decisions I've made as an adult! Not only have they been in contact with me, but they listened and found mistakes in the crash report that the officer didn't want to admit to! I'm beyond thankful!
