Unsafe conditions around swimming pools can cause serious injuries. A slip can lead to torn ligaments, fractures or head injuries. Unsafe pool chemical levels can lead to illness and even chemical burns. However, the water itself is the greatest danger. Losing a child or loved one from drowning is one of the most heart-wrenching tragedies imaginable. These accidents can happen under normal circumstances, but in situations where it could have been prevented, you deserve justice.
If someone you care about has been injured or taken from you due to the negligence of a property owner, a lifeguard or supervisor, a lawsuit may be your only avenue for justice. Farah and Farah can help. Our swimming pool accident attorneys have protected people and their families since 1979. Call 905-549-6434 for your free consultation.
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 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.
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).
