California leads the nation in swimming pool related injuries and deaths in the United States. Swimming accidents claim the lives of over 1,000 children each year and accidents in swimming pools account for over 1/3 of those fatalities. IT TAKES LESS THAN 5 MINUTES AND UNDER 2 INCHES OF WATER FOR A CHILD TO DROWN. Thousands of adults will also die or suffer catastrophic injury as a result of swimming mishaps.
Most swimming pool injuries occur because of improperly designed and constructed pools, failure to properly secure a pool from small children, and failure to maintain the swimming pool in good condition.
Owners of private "backyard" pools have a responsibility to provide a safe environment for children and adults alike and need to focus on accident prevention. Public pools such as community pools and hotel/motel pools are also subject to the same guidelines. If you have been injured in a swimming pool accident, you may be able to file a "premises liability" claim against the responsible owner of any pool if you can prove the owner was negligent, that that negligence caused an injury and that damages occurred as a result of that injury.
Liability for swimming pool or spa accidents involves three types of law - negligence or tort law, product liability law and premises liability law. These laws are complex and require the expertise of a personal injury lawyer with experience handling serious swimming pool injury cases.
Masry & Vititoe believes that in order to represent our injured clients in the best possible manner, our firm must have an understanding of the human anatomy and how it responds to an injury. Therefore, through experience and education, our firm is able to expertly evaluate injuries and successfully pursue claims on behalf of the injured plaintiff.
While proving a physical, emotional, or cognitive injury can be difficult, our experienced and knowledgeable drowning accident attorneys and staff are able to undertake difficult cases and prevail, convincing skeptics of the merits of a claim via credible, trustworthy evidence and objective test findings. Our firm is committed to protecting our client's rights and has repeatedly demonstrated our ability to succeed in the most challenging and complex injury cases.
