Drowning Accidents and Negligence Claims

Sadly, drowning accidents are fairly common in the Los Angeles area, especially in summer. Not every swimming pool accident entitles the family to a death claim, or an injured child to a personal injury settlement. However, if your child drowned or suffered a swimming pool injury, you deserve to know exactly what happened.

If you have a claim for negligence, and hire us to represent you, our lawyers will provide the thorough legal representation necessary to recover maximum compensation for your loss.

When negligence results in preventable drowning accidents

It is the responsibility of every member of the community to take extra precautions to prevent child injuries as well as foreseeable injuries to adults. Preventable drowning accidents result from a wide variety of negligent actions:

  • Negligence on the part of the owner of a swimming pool
  • Manufacturing or design defects of spas and therapeutic hot tubs
  • Defective installation of a fence or gate
  • Negligent supervision by a school swimming teacher or a lifeguard
  • Lack of lifeguard
  • Inadequate training or supervision of lifeguards at a public beach or pool
