Drowning accident claims fall under premises liability because, more often than not, they occur due to an inadequately maintained or secured premise. This can include things such as:
Proving liability in these cases can be a difficult task. Swimming pools often try to shirk responsibility by claiming a “swim at your own risk” sign is adequate to deflect any additional responsibility for swimmers. This is a ridiculous claim, but has been successful in past trials.
We have years of experience helping victims and their families with these claims. We know exactly what tactics swimming pool owners and the insurance companies will use to try and deny your claim.
We have a proven track record of successfully fighting these companies and winning compensation for our clients. We are equally compassionate to your needs as we are aggressive in our pursuit of justice for victims.
