Swimming Pool & Drowning Accidents

Get Help from Our Antelope Valley Attorneys

Swimming pools pose a serious danger to those who don't know how to swim, and both adults and children can fall victim to swimming pool drowning in certain situations. More than one thousand children's lives are claimed every year by swimming pools, and drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional injury-related deaths in children aged 14 and under.

Who is liable for pool accidents?

Owners of private pools are responsible for maintaining a safe environment for people on their property, and under California law land owners with exposed pools and hot tubs are required to fence the area surrounding the pool and to have special child proof gates and access areas. If an owner fails to take these precautions and a child or adult is injured in a swimming pool drowning because of their negligence, they can be held liable for damages and will be required to provide compensation to the victim.

Take Legal Action after a Swimming Pool Accident in Lancaster

At The Law Offices of Gerald L. Marcus, our personal injury attorneys represent individuals in Antelope Valley who have suffered an injury or death of a family member in a swimming pool drowning. Those who survive a swimming pool drowning tend to suffer comas, brain injuries, broken bones, and contusions.

In these cases, an attorney can help get you compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, lost future wages, and pain and suffering. If you are the family member of a person who died from a swimming pool drowning, our lawyers can assist you with a wrongful death suit, which will provide you and your family with compensation for pain and suffering and other expenses incurred as a result of the death.

Any time an owner fails to provide proper supervision, warnings, gating, and safety & rescue equipment, the owner or operator of the swimming pool may be negligent, entitling the victim or the victim's family to compensation. Our lawyers can help you file a claim for a swimming pool drowning and will do their best to get you the compensation you deserve.
