When Can You Seek Financial Compensation After a Florida Swimming Pool Accident in Florida?
Many different types of issues can lead to serious and fatal swimming pool accidents. At Searcy Denney, we represent Florida residents, visitors and families in cases involving all causes of swimming-related injuries and fatalities, which is a common type of premises liability case. Some of the most-common types of cases we handle include those involving:
- Broken glass and other dangerous debris in or around the pool
- Dangerous filters and drains
- Drowning and near-drowning accidents
- Improper water levels
- Inadequate maintenance or repairs
- Inadequate or missing signage
- Missing emergency contact information
- Missing emergency floatation devices
- Negligent lifeguarding or child care
- Slips and trips on unsafe pool surrounds and decking
- Unsafe pool water (either over-chlorination or overgrowth of bacteria)
These issues, among others, can lead to dangerous situations for both children and adults; and, in most cases they can – and should – be avoided by the pool’s owner. If the pool’s owner is not liable for negligence, then the manufacturer or retailer of the product that caused the accident (i.e. a slippery tile or dangerous drain) could be liable under Florida’s law of product liability.
What Should You Do After a Swimming Pool Accident?
After a swimming pool accident, the most important thing to do is to seek prompt medical attention and ensure that you have a clear understanding of your doctor’s treatment recommendations. Do not wait to seek treatment, and do not ignore your doctor’s advice. Once you or your child is stable, then your next step should be to consult with a Florida personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.
How Can a Personal Injury Lawyer Help?
When you contact us about your (or your child’s or other loved one’s) swimming pool accident, one of our lawyers will meet with you one-on-one to discuss your legal rights, and then we will conduct an investigation promptly. The purpose of this investigation will be to gather as much evidence as possible and determine who (or what company) is liable for your losses. Once we know who is to blame and we have the evidence to prove it, then we can use our experience to seek just compensation on your behalf.
