Who is Liable in a Swimming Pool & Drowning Accident?
In general, property owners have a legal responsibility to keep their property reasonably safe for anticipated use. Florida law groups people into three main categories for the purposes of determining liability. Invitees, licensees, and trespassers.
Patrons at a public pool whether it is free or for a fee. Owners must keep their property in a reasonably safe condition and warn invitees of any known hazards on the property.
Invited guests to a pool on private property. Owners must keep their property in a reasonably safe condition and warn guests of any known hazards on the property.
Anybody without permission to be on the property. Owners have no obligations to trespassers unless they are children.
The law has special provisions that stipulate owners must take extra safety precautions to protect trespassing children from accidental drowning. Under The Residential Swimming Pool Safety Act, all new swimming pools and hot tubs should be equipped with at least one of the following security features:
How Can an Attorney Help During this Difficult Time?
Filing a lawsuit will not bring back a lost loved one or completely erase the impact of a serious injury. However, it can offer a small amount of closure and ease your financial burden. At Farah & Farah, we believe that you deserve some peace of mind during a difficult time.
Having a premises liability lawyer on your side who has experience in handling swimming pool accident cases gives you a much better chance of success in your claim. Our attorneys will exhaust every available resource and gather the necessary evidence to make a compelling case. If you have been injured or a loved one has been significantly or fatally injured, you could recover substantial damages to cover medical bills and replace lost income or a loss of future earning capacity. Improper maintenance of the pool, a lack of signage or improper supervision are potential grounds for negligence.
You can trust us to get things done so that you have more freedom to move forward. Our team will focus on:
How Common are Swimming Pool Accidents in Florida?
Part of the reason Farah & Farah has such a wide breadth of experience with this type of accident is that they are all too common in Florida. Florida has the second most pools of any state, meaning there are more places for unsafe conditions to manifest themselves than nearly anywhere else in the nation.
As a result, Florida is among the leaders in pool related injuries and drownings across the U.S. In 2017, Florida led the nation in child drownings, with 80% involving children under five years old.
Not all drowning incidents are fatal, however. In the event that a drowning person is found before they pass, they can still suffer severe and permanent injury, such as hypoxia (brain damage due to a lack of oxygen in the brain), organ damage and even dry drowning or secondary drowning (which are caused by water that accumulates in the lungs).
How Much Does a Swimming Pool Accident Lawyer Cost in Florida?
