DROWNINGS

DROWNINGSEvery year thousands of children and adults suffer serious injury or die in swimming pool accidents, recreational park accidents, diving accidents and spa-related accidents. Most swimming pool accidents are the result of badly designed or constructed pools, improper pool maintenance and failure by property owners to install proper fences around a pool or cover them.

Property owners with swimming pools in homes, apartment complexes, hotels and resorts, even public recreation centers, are expected to provide a safe swimming area for adults and children. When they fail, they can be held legally responsible under premises liability laws for any swimming pool injuries or fatalities. Swimming pool owners may be found negligent for failure to properly secure a pool or spa, or for neglecting to post adequate warnings about water depth or clearly indicate easy-access pump shut-off switches.

If you or a family member is the victim of any type of swimming accident, diving mishap or drowning the experienced personal injury trial attorneys of Coker Law can help. Our attorneys have effectively represented clients injured in many types of drowning cases, with no two being the same.

We can also assist victims and their families in pursuing claims against swimming pool and spa manufacturers.
