Swimming Pool Accident Claims

For public and private pools

You may be surprised to learn that drowning is the fifth leading cause of death in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), on average 10 people die from unintentional drowning each and every day. If you have suffered from the wrongful death of a loved one due to a swimming pool accident, or you are suffering an injury as a result of a pool accident, contact the law firm of Anderson, Moschetti and Taffany.

Causes of Public Pool Accidents

A thorough investigation is necessary to discover the underlying cause of a public pool accident. If a pool is not properly fenced in, or a lifeguard failed to take proper action, serious injury or death may result. Some of the most common causes of pool accidents include:

  • poorly maintained surfaces
  • inattentive life guards
  • defective drains
  • lack of maintenance
  • diving board malfunction
  • improper gates or fences securing pool area

Individuals, especially children, may become the victim of a swimming pool accident. If a loved one loses consciousness while in the water after being injured, prompt efforts at resuscitation may restart breathing and heartbeat, but those precious few moments are vital in protecting an individual against permanent brain damage and other lifelong injuries.

Causes of Private Pool Accidents

Similar to public pools, private swimming pools also pose similar risks. The main difference between a public or private pool is often a lack of supervision or poor maintenance of the pool area.  Negligence can result in personal injury, the consequences of which may be catastrophic injury or even death.
