Personal Injury In Pennsylvania Pools And Hot Tubs
Injuries and death can occur when the proper safety precautions are not taken in a public or residential swimming pool setting. These injuries — including drowning, loss of limbs and injuries to bowels and other internal organs — also happen in Jacuzzi hot tubs, Whirlpool hot tubs and lap pools.
At Caroselli, Beachler & Coleman, L.L.C., we understand the devastating impact that these accidents can have on the personal injury victim and his or her family. That is why we are dedicated to pursuing the highest standards of representation in personal injury cases.
When Swimming Pool Accidents Happen To Children
According to the Center for Disease Control, nearly one quarter of all drowning deaths in the United States are children under age 16. There are many reasons that these wrongful deaths occur. Proper warning signs may not be placed in the area, proper enclosures may not be in place and young children are often allowed to use pools while unsupervised.
If your child has been injured in a swimming pool accident, talk with our attorneys about your options. We may be able to pursue action against the property owner in premises liability litigation. We may also be able to hold the pool manufacturer responsible for defective products, like pumps or drains, distributed without the proper safety features in place.
When we take your case, we explore all the facts and laws that may affect the outcome. We often consult with knowledgeable experts. We also interview witnesses, visit the scene of the swimming pool accident and review police reports.
