Tucson Swimming Pool Accidents Lawyer

One of the most devastating things to happen to someone you love is an accident in a pool.  Because pools are designed for enjoyment and good exercise, one may not carefully plan the prevention of a water submersion injury.  Unfortunately, accidents do happen and if you or a loved one has been hurt or drowned in a pool due to the negligence of another, contact a Tucson personal injury lawyer at Lara Law to discuss the circumstances and your legal options for compensation.

Most people, especially concerned parents, are careful at all times around swimming pools and take adequate safety precautions.  However, it can be easy to miss that someone has fallen victim in a pool because they may not make any unusual sound when under water and they can drown in a relatively short period of time.  Alertness and good, precautionary measures go a long way toward safe and enjoyable swimming experiences.

Drowning Accidents Lawyer in Tucson

Various accidents can happen in and around swimming pools, such as drowning, head injury, back injury, sinus injury, permanent neurological damage or other physical injuries.  A large percentage of unintended drowning accidents and near deaths from water submersion accidents involve children.  Research has shown that often children may think more of their swimming abilities than is actually warranted.  Good preventive measures can certainly include:

  • Adult supervision, even if a sibling is also present.
  • Child training in swimming and water safety. Believe it or not, some parents even start their children’s swimming lessons very early, like shortly after birth.

And for anyone swimming:

  • Only swimming where there are life guards.
  • Never allowing anyone to swim who is drunk or under the influence of drugs.
  • Never swim when exhausted.

Because injuries do occur, and because the injured or their loved ones can be upset and confused after such an accident, we stand ready to help any family strategize the best legal route through their crisis and obtain the full settlement or compensation to which they are entitled.
