Pool & Drowning Accidents

Pool Accidents & Drowning

Reno Personal Injury Attorney, 30+ Years of Proven Advocacy

According to the Center of Disease Control and Prevention, around ten people die from drowning every day. Even near-drowning accidents can result in serious injuries such as intestinal damage, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, compromised respiratory systems and paralysis.

Examples of places where drowning accidents frequently occur include:

  • Water parks
  • Recreation facilities
  • Other public facilities
  • Private residences

Who is Responsible for Pool Accidents?

Homeowners and business owners are usually the ones responsible for these kinds of accidents. If a child falls into an unsecured swimming pool, even if he/she was not given permission to enter the pool area, the property owner can be held legally responsible. If negligent maintenance or poor construction is the cause of your swimming pool injury, you may have a valid personal injury claim. Our firm can investigate your matter to help you determine the liable entities and the potential value of your case.

Examples of negligence in swimming pool accidents include:

  • Broken tiles or flooring around the pool
  • Lack of or insufficient supervision
  • Unsafe vacuum drain
  • Overserving of alcohol at a resort
  • Ineffective response to tragedy by staff or an unclean pool (making it impossible to see a drowning victim).

We can handle everything from premises liability claims to product liability claims (for example, if a pool drain cover is found to be dangerous or defective, a product manufacturer can be held liable for any resulting injuries).
