Helping Those Injured In Swimming Pool Accidents Recover Fair Compensation
A recent report by the CDC found that more than 3,000 people died as a result of a drowning accident in 2007. For every person who drowned, thousands more were injured as a result of a submersion accident.
Tragically, many drowning victims are young children. One out of every five fatal drowning victims is a child aged 14 or younger. For every child who dies from drowning, another four children require emergency department care as a result of a submersion injury. (2007 CDC Report)
Swimming Pool Accidents - Common Causes
One significant cause of drowning and submersion injuries is swimming pool accidents. Children are particularly susceptible to such accidents. Common causes of swimming pool accidents include:
- Broken latches or unsecured latches
- Inadequate fencing or barriers
- Improper safety warnings
- Diving board accidents
- Water slide accidents
- Unmarked or poorly marked pool depth
Legal Experience Matters
Homeowners and commercial property owners often have insurance policies that provide coverage for swimming pool accident claims. The insurance companies aggressively defend against such claims. Do not rely on an insurance company to have your best interests at heart.
Our Orlando pool accident attorneys have represented more than a thousand accident victims. We have a proven record of results. We take time to investigate the cause of accidents, understand the severity of our clients' injuries and aggressively pursue maximum compensation for our clients.
Serious Injuries And Fatal Injuries
Swimming pool accidents may cause serious or fatal injuries. Submersion accidents may cause brain damage. Diving board or water slide accidents may cause broken bones, back or neck injuries, spinal cord damage or even paralysis. Drowning accidents cause death.
Our attorneys have represented clients who have sustained a wide range of injuries, including broken bones and fractures, spinal cord damage and paralysis, disfiguring injuries, severe back and neck injuries, and brain damage. We have advocated on behalf of many family members in wrongful death claims. We use our experience, skill and resources to build a strong case on behalf of our clients and pursue the full compensation they are entitled to receive.
