Children swimming in pool wearing sunglasses​Our innocent children are often the most vulnerable when it comes to swimming pool accidents. We often take it for granted that they will be safe when they’re swimming in a local pool. But when accidents happen, you need to hire a swimming pool accident lawyer to ensure that you and your family’s rights are protected.

Our experienced drowning and swimming injury lawyers in Tampa will aggressively pursue compensation for any pool injuries suffered or wrongful death by drowning on behalf of a family member.

How We Can Help Defend Your Rights

Swimming pool accidents often occur because the owner or operator failed to exercise ordinary care. For example, they may have:

  • Failed to provide safety equipment
  • Failed to take measures to provide a safe swimming environment
  • Failure to post warnings about dangerous conditions
  • Improperly trained staff

To receive compensation from swimming pool accidents, you must prove that:

  • The property owner had a legal duty to you
  • The property owner or operator knew, or should have known, there was a dangerous condition
  • The property owner or operator had an opportunity to repair or remedy the  dangerous condition.
  • The property owner’s failure to take appropriate action was a direct cause of the pool accident

Possible compensation includes:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Lost future earnings, pain and suffering
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Other damages

Protecting Your Legal Rights after a Swimming Pool Accident

Here are some steps you can take:

  • Seek proper medical care. You will need documentation and medical evidence for your case.
  • Get the names, phone numbers, and addresses of all witnesses involved. If you can, take photographs of the scene.
  • Do not sign any documents relating to the incident.
  • Do not discuss your case with anyone. Most parties that you will need to deal with, including insurance companies, do not have your best interests in mind.
  • Hire an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible. You may have to file a suit within a specific time frame, depending to the statutes of limitations.

If you or a loved one has been injured or has drowned in a pool due to the negligent act of another, you should hire an attorney.  The initial meeting with your Tampa personal injury lawyer is free. We work on a contingency fee which means we only collect a percentage of what we recover for you.
