Why Do You Need a Swimming Pool Accident Lawyer?

Some insurance companies will try to deny or minimize a claimant’s recovery. You may face an insurance company that refutes your claim, tries to place liability on you, or denies your claim for no reason. With an attorney representing your case, you can take a stand against insurance bad faith and protect your rights to compensation. A lawyer from The Fine Law Firm can handle insurance claim negotiations on your behalf.

Causes of Swimming Pool Accidents

Swimming pool accidents can happen either when the pool isn’t safe or someone fails to adequately supervise swimmers. An unsafe pool may stem from a lack of property maintenance, such as failing to replace a broken drain cover. Owner negligence can also make a pool unsafe, such as failing to post “No Diving” signs in a shallow pool or miscalculating the chemical balance for the pool.

Lack of supervision may cause a swimming pool accident if an adult isn’t paying attention to kids at a pool party, a lifeguard isn’t qualified for the job, or the homeowner doesn’t take steps to reasonably prevent children from entering the swimming pool. Identifying the cause of your or a loved one’s swimming pool accident is one of the first steps toward obtaining compensation.

Injuries Sustained

Swimming pool accidents can lead to a range of personal injuries. Diving into a pool can cause facial fractures, lost teeth, and serious spinal cord injuries. A slip and fall on a pool deck could cause broken bones and lacerations. The injuries a victim sustains will depend upon the nature of the accident.

Who Is Liable?

The liable party for a swimming pool accident depends on who is responsible for the main factor that injured the victim. Common liable parties include swimming pool owners, maintenance crews, lifeguards/supervisors, schools or businesses, and product manufacturers. You may need an experienced Albuquerque swimming pool accident attorney’s assistance in determining the liable party or parties.
