Palm Bay Pool Accident Attorney

Drowning and Pool Accidents in Palm Bay

We enjoy many sunny, warm days here in Florida and are fortunate to have access to abundant pools at which we can recreate and relax.  Sadly, fun sometimes leads to tragedy when someone slips and falls at a pool or drowns.  Statistically, drowning is the leading cause of accidental death for children aged 1-4 and the second leading cause for children aged 1-14.  Most of these accidents occur at a residential swimming pool, meaning that there may be extenuating circumstances and responsibilities breached by another if you or a loved one has suffered a pool accident.  Sometimes these occurrences are simply tragic accidents, but it is still in your best interest to consult with a Palm Bay personal injury attorney to ensure that all the facts in your case are explored and that your legal rights were not violated in your injury or loss.

It is the responsibility of all of us to ensure the protection of others.  We hold a special duty of care when it comes to protecting children, who are less experienced and more vulnerable.  Many drowning and pool accidents could have been prevented had negligence not been involved, such as in cases of:

  • Pool owner negligence
  • Defective gate or fence leading into a pool area
  • Absence of a lifeguard at public pools or beaches
  • Inadequate or improper lifeguard training
  • Manufacturing and design defects of pool equipment or hot tubs
