Swimming Pool Injuries

Atlanta Personal Injury Attorney

Private and public swimming pools are a source of fun and recreation for individuals, families and children. If they are not properly maintained, supervised or equipped with the proper safety measures, they can also be dangerous. The owner, manager or operator of a private or public swimming pool can be held liable for any unnecessary accidents, injuries or even fatalities if it can be shown that the injury or loss was preventable or a result of misconduct. If you have been injured or a member of your family has been hurt or drowned as a result of another’s carelessness or negligence you should speak to an Atlanta personal injury lawyer at the Law Office of Neil Flit.

Children are the most frequent victims of swimming pool injuries and fatalities in the U.S. It is the legal responsibility of the owner or operator of a swimming pool to keep their pool safe and provide both adequate supervision and safety measures in case of accidents. We specialize in helping individuals and families who have suffered injury or personal losses that should never have happened. When you call our offices we can arrange a free and confidential consultation to discuss your case. We are ready to help you seek a financial settlement for your medical expenses as well as damages for any loss or suffering you have been caused.

Injuries from Swimming Pool Accidents

Not every accident is preventable or caused by another’s misconduct but when an injury is caused by broken or faulty equipment, poorly maintained grounds or inadequate safety measures the party responsible can and should be held responsible. Swimming pool accidents and drownings can be caused by such things as:

  • Missing or broken safety fences or pool covers
  • Missing or inadequate safety and warning signs
  • Broken or faulty pool equipment such as diving boards, handrails and controls
  • Missing, inadequate or poorly trained lifeguards
  • Poorly constructed pool grounds

Whatever the circumstances surround your swimming pool accident you should speak to an experienced personal injury lawyer to find out what your legal options are. Don’t hesitate to give us a call today.

Contact an Atlanta personal injury attorney if you or a loved one has suffered from a swimming pool accident or lost a loved one to drowning.
