Statewide Florida Injury and Wrongful Death Lawyers
Pool safety requires planning, diligence and proper maintenance. Under Florida premises liability laws, owners of commercial, public and even residential pools are required to take reasonable steps to keep them safe. Lifeguards may be required at certain public pools and water parks, and residential pools must have gates or alarms.
Drownings, near-drownings resulting in oxygen deprivation and brain damage, and other pool accidents often victimize children, leaving parents to deal with grief, regret and often serious long-term financial concerns.
Whether the water-related accident impacting your family happened at a hotel pool, condominium complex, municipal pool or private residence, we encourage you to contact us today for a clear, thorough assessment of your legal rights and options.
Targeting Just Compensation After a Swimming Accident or Drowning
Recovering the financial compensation you need after a pool, water park or boating accident will require an attorney with strong investigative skills and deep legal and insurance knowledge. Proving liability and identifying applicable insurance coverage may be very challenging issues as you pursue a fair recovery for an accident involving:
- Catastrophic injury or the death of a child enabled by failure to properly secure and supervise a pool area or post appropriate warnings
- A serious fall on a slippery surface near a pool, sometimes resulting in a severe head, brain, spinal or orthopedic injury
- A product-related or pool design or construction defect such as a dangerous pump, drain or filtration system
- Diving accidents related to lifeguard negligence or other factors
If you are entitled to an insurance recovery, a swimming pool injury lawyer at our firm will work all angles in the effort to secure and maximize that recovery — through negotiation or at trial if that is what it takes. We have the knowledge and resources to go toe-to-toe with major insurers and business owners.
