"How did your swimming pool accident happen?"
People die in drowning accidents every day in America, making drowning the fifth leading cause of unintentional injury deaths in the country. The numbers are especially bad in Florida for children under 5 years old - the state leads the nation in drowning deaths in that age range.
Swimming pool accidents in Florida can happen for any number of reasons. But in many cases, many swimming pool accidents occur due to negligent or reckless behavior by the pool owner. In the Orlando area, many hotel accidents or theme park accidents involve people being injured in pools. A lifeguard at a hotel or water park might not be paying attention or not be properly trained. Proper life-saving equipment might not be readily available.
Whatever the reason, drowning accidents demand strong legal action. That's why it's important to contact us as soon as possible. A delay could affect your ability to obtain compensation for your swimming pool accident. In Florida, you have a limited amount of time (known as the statute of limitations) to take legal action after an injury accident.
"Why do I need a lawyer for a swimming pool accident?"
Too often, too many people fail to take their swimming pool accident seriously right from the start. Often, they think their case is straightforward. Someone got hurt at a pool due to someone else's reckless behavior. Therefore, your family will be compensated for the injury that you, your spouse or your child sustained in a swimming pool.
Don't be so sure. Most swimming pool accidents end up being complicated. The amusement park, hotel or whoever owns the pool might deny any wrongdoing. They might even try to point the finger at you. And then there are the insurance companies, who will do everything they can to reduce or deny injury claims.
