The National Safety Council reports that there are more than 7,000 drowning deaths in the United States annually, and drowning is the leading cause of death and injury for kids five years old and younger. Overall, it is the second leading cause of death for kids under age 15. While monetary awards never bring loved ones back to life, they are a significant factor in making pool operators observe all safety protocols and laws, and prevent such tragedies in the future. At The Terry Law Firm, our Morristown personal injury attorneys help the families of victims of drowning accidents recover just compensation from the owners and operators of swimming pools.
- Our attorneys have helped families of victims of accidental drowning in:
- Hotel pools or resorts
- Lazy rivers
- Water parks
- Public pools
- Private swimming pools
There are many codes, rules and accepted practices to prevent children from drowning and near drowning. Unfortunately, pool owners and operators do not always follow the best practices. The Terry Law Firm is experienced in cases involving pools, drownings and near drownings.
Effectively Determining if You Have a Claim
Not all venues employ lifeguards and most will have posted signs about pool rules. It takes a skilled team to determine if all of the necessary precautions were followed and to investigate all of the facts of the case. If lifeguard negligence or carelessness on the part of the pool owner or operator figured in your case, you could have a claim.
