It is important to document the case fully when legal action is taken because of statute of limitations in which to file such cases. It is crucial to move fast and acquire the evidence to support the injury or wrongful death case.
Seeking compensation after a tragic pool accident or drowning requires the skill of an attorney who has specialized knowledge in this area of personal injury law.
Apartment Pool Drowning or Accident
It is the apartment complex’s complete responsibility to properly maintain its pools and spas. It is also their responsibility to provide and up keep the security around its pools. When an apartment complex fails to do this, serious injuries or accidents can take place. Pool fences and gates can become damaged over time and fail to keep children securely outside of the pool. Most children are attracted to water and are at a higher risk of drowning when they can access a pool without adult supervision. They can fall into the water and suffer a head injury causing unconsciousness, which quickly causes oxygen deprivation that can result in permanent brain injuries or even death. If the child acquires a permanent brain injury this can lead to long-term disability which requires extensive medical care. A swimming accident and drowning attorney can find several liable parties such as the apartment managers, the pool maintenance company, apartment owners, the fence or gate manufacturer or the installers. A swimming accident and drowning attorney ensures that a claim for damages resulting from serious injuries includes medical expenses and future care.
