Victims of drowning
Swimming pools are among the most dangerous recreational areas for children and adults. Thus, the Consumer Product Safety Commission has reported that every day, about ten people die from unintentional drowning. Of these drownings, two are children aged 14 or younger. In addition, drowning ranks fifth among the leading causes of unintentional injury death in the United States. Accordingly, from 2005-2014 there were an average of 3,536 fatal unintentional drownings annually in the United States or about ten deaths per day. Furthermore, an additional 332 people died each year from drowning in boating-related incidents. Accordingly, a pool death lawsuit or pool drowning lawsuit may well be justified. Consumer Product Safety Commission
Also, it is reported that several thousand children go to emergency departments each year due to incidents in pools or spas. Nonfatal drowning can actually cause brain damage that results in long-term disabilities. In addition, pool and diving board accidents can have a high risk of spinal cord injury. Paraplegia and quadriplegia accidents can leave victims paralyzed for life.
involving pools or spas occur when there is not proper supervision or adequate life guards. Thus, the pool is not under the supervision of a responsible adult or individual at that particular point. As a direct result of that, a toddler or young child, can stroll into the swimming pool area without anyone else noticing and without any consent whatsoever and drown. However, many times there is negligence involved concerning the pool owner which causes a drowning or a negligent rescue situation. These cases tend to turn on the specific facts of each case and are influenced by State law in many cases.
Who Is liable for these accidents?
There are typically three types of “entrants” to a pool or water property: invitees, licensees, and trespassers. Thus, pool owners have a different level of responsibility and liability for the safety of each type of entrant. Therefore, each pool death lawsuit is different.
In addition, public pool or water park visitors are typically classified as invitees. Accordingly, these owners have a responsibility to maintain and repair the pool or park to ensure it is safe for these visitors. Guests of a pool on private property are usually licensees. Furthermore, pool owners must warn these visitors of safety hazards that are not readily apparent.
Also, it is clear that the attractive nuisance doctrine states that pool owners must make reasonable efforts to prevent children from entering without the owner’s knowledge, such as putting up a fence or other barrier to the pool.
Many swimming pool drownings
are the result of property owner carelessness. Accordingly, negligence can play a big part in many drownings and near-drowning cases. Furthermore, a lack of supervision or a problem with the premises may be to blame. Most drowning lawyers believe as we do that there are legal obligations to provide a safe swimming pool and hot tub area for children and adults.
Ownership and operation of a swimming pool usually requires supervision, fencing, and/or covering of unattended pools.
In addition, Premises & Product Liability Laws can help hold negligent parties responsible and accountable in a pool death lawsuit.
Thus, if you or your child has been seriously injured or killed in swimming pool, hot tub, or water park accident we know that it may be devastating to the whole family. Therefore, we will relentlessly search for all parties or companies that are responsible for the accident.
Early Investigation is the key to your case.
It is important to investigate the case as soon as possible. Accordingly, it is important to gather:
- Photographs of the scene of the accident
- Statements of all Eyewitnesses
- 911 tape recordings
- EMS paramedic transport logs
- All police or investigative reports
- News, newspapers, or television broadcast copies
- Medical records and autopsy results if performed.
What damages are potentially recoverable in a pool death lawsuit?
- physical and mental pain and suffering,
- mental anguish,
- physical and mental impairment,
- medical expenses,
- loss of earnings,
- loss of earning capacity,
- and prejudgment and post judgment interest.
- Furthermore, when the responsible party acted with malice, there may be punitive damages.
