The Cochran Firm, D.C.’s Managing Attorney David E. Haynes has personally handed several complex water safety cases, including one that resulted in a $14,000,000 settlement for the family of a young girl who suffered a near-drowning event. In that case, Mr. Haynes successfully sued the pool’s owners, lifeguard company, and property manager for their inability to put proper safety measures in place to prevent the victim’s injuries.
While water safety accidents are rare, when they do occur these events can have a tremendous impact on the health and wellbeing of innocent people. With so much on the line, families need a seasoned attorney they can count on to put forth the experience, resources, and dedication necessary to help secure a favorable outcome and hold wrongdoers responsible.
Often times, swimming pool and water park accidents occur because of the negligence of property owners, managers, or their agents operating these facilities. At The Cochran Firm, D.C., our attorneys help families get answers and exercise their legal rights to hold these parties accountable for their indifference to public safety.
Since The Cochran Firm, D.C.’s founding in 2002, our water safety attorneys have handled several water accident lawsuits, including cases in Maryland and Prince George’s County. In addition to a team of local DC-area attorneys, The Cochran Firm, D.C. utilizes its in-house investigators, a legal-nurse, and an experienced staff dedicated to defending the rights of injured victims and upholding the vision of our Founding Partner, Johnnie L. Cochran, Jr.
When property owners and operators fail to exercise due caution and keep their facilities clear of dangers, the results can be catastrophic. In addition to following state and local laws on swimming pool safety, water park operators must also uphold their legal duty to put safety measures in place to prevent foreseeable injuries.
Although we expect people to take responsibility for their mistakes, the reality is that many large companies would rather deny, delay, and defend otherwise meritorious claims. At The Cochran Firm, D.C., our attorneys only represent injured parties and work tirelessly to secure justice on their behalf.
