Swimming Pool Accident & Drowning Lawsuit Lawyers

Swimming Pool Accidents, Drowning Lawsuits

Drowning is the leading cause of all accidental deaths among children one to four years of age, and the next leading cause among all children from one to 14 years of age, second only to motor vehicle accidents. Drowning, whether it be in a swimming pool, or other body of water, is a very real threat.

Negligence often plays a part in drowning and near-drowning cases, whether the cause is lack of supervision on the premises or a problem with the facilities. If you or someone you know died or suffered serious injury as the result of a swimming accident,  contact a swimming accident attorney to get a free evaluation of your case for a possible lawsuit. We can be reached at 855-866-5529.

Munley Law is the Leading Swimming Pool Accident, Drowning, and Near-Drowning Injury Law Firm in Pennsylvania

Drownings and swimming accidents can occur in public and private swimming pools, fitness clubs, open recreational bodies of water such as lakes, ponds, and rivers, and even in home spas, hot tubs, or  bathtubs. In non-fatal drowning cases,  brain damage can occur after four minutes of submersion and an estimated 20% of drowning victims suffer severe, permanent neurological disability even if they survive the incident.

Swimming accidents and injuries can occur in a number of situations, including:

  • A lack of supervision where children are swimming
  • The facilities are not adequately maintained
  • There is no barrier/fence around a pool area
  • A slip and fall near a pool
  • A swimmer’s hair, clothing, jewelry, or limb becomes caught in a drain opening

It is important to supervise children whenever they are swimming, and to teach them never to swim alone. Still, public pools are required by law to have proper lifeguard supervision based on how many people are in the pool. They are also required to have fences around public swimming areas. Individual municipalities have fence laws for pools on private properties as well.

If negligence of any kind played a part in your accident or your loved one’s injury, be sure to take photos of the facilities and any equipment related to the incident. Then, call an attorney who will help you determine the next steps to take in filing a claim.

About 5 months ago, I had injured my back after lifting a heavy box at work. My employer refused to submit my claim even though the doctor had said the injury was caused by the action. I turned to Caroline Munley for help and I’m glad that I did. She walked me through filing my claim and helped me get the money to pay for my medical bills. I don’t know where I would be without her. Thank you, Ms. Munley! Lisa, a Workers’ Compensation Client

It was such a wonderful feeling knowing that there was always someone in my corner taking care of me. He always came through. Always. I would recommend Dan Munley to anyone!
