Ventura Swimming Pool Accidents

Drowning Attorney Serving Ventura County

Unfortunately, drownings are fairly common in California due to the high number of swimming pools throughout the state. With the warm climate and sunny weather, many individuals and families partake in the leisurely activity of swimming every day, and, unfortunately, many drown.

Depending upon the nature of the accident, premises liability, negligence, or products liability could be involved in a claim for a swimming pool drowning. After examining the circumstances, your personal injury lawyer will determine what legal action needs to take place for your particular situation to be resolved.

The following types of people can be held liable for damages resulting from a swimming pool drowning on their property:

  • Owners of private, residential swimming pools.
  • Owners of property, with private or commercial pools used for the benefit of guests, members, or tenants (motels, campgrounds, health clubs, apartments, etc.).
  • Owners of government property such as municipal swimming pools that are open to the community, including school swimming pools.
  • Possessors or operators of the property, such as people who rent to others.

If you or a loved one has suffered injury from drowning in a swimming pool or have lost a loved one in a swimming pool drowning, a personal injury attorney from our firm can help you. Swimming pool drownings are not always merely accidents, and sometimes the incident could have been prevented had an owner not been negligent.

At the Law Offices of Gerald L. Marcus, we make it our goal to hold negligent pool owners responsible for any injury or death that results from their poor choices, and we will do whatever it takes to make sure victims receive compensation.

Contact a personal injury lawyer today if you or a loved one has been injured in a swimming pool drowning in Simi Valley, Thousand Oaks, or Oxnard!
