Pool Accidents Attorney in Orlando, Fl
A relaxing day in the sunshine out by the pool can quickly turn into a nightmare when pool safety regulations are not conscientiously followed or enforced. Every year, in the United States, over 300 toddlers between the ages of 1 and 4 are victims of unintentional drowning in residential swimming pools and spas. Between Memorial Day and Labor Day 2013 alone, at least 202 children under the age of 15 drowned in swimming pools and spas in the US. Of the 202 victims, 70% were under the age of 5 and 24 of the deaths occurred in Florida, the second highest number of all the states.
These Accidents Affect You
Numerous other catastrophic injuries occur poolside as well, including life-altering neck and back injuries from slip and fall accidents and diving, and severe, permanent brain damage from near-drowning experiences. With over 35 years of experience as an Orlando pool accident attorney, I have the experience and expertise needed to properly represent the victims and families of these types of accidents.
These tragic accidents can result in lifelong effects that change the lives of the victims and those of their family forever. The inability to work, socialize, and lead a normal life along with expensive medical bills can create an incomprehensible amount of stress and grief. Don’t try to fight these cases alone. Hiring a Central Florida pool accident lawyer with less experience than myself can mean even more stress and grief on your part.
Unfortunately, in the majority of these cases, up-to-standard safety regulations and proper attention could have prevented numerous injuries and deaths. Overcrowded pools, infrequent or inadequate pool upkeep, negligent or poorly trained lifeguards, and faulty equipment such as gate latches and drains all create dangerous conditions that are too often the cause of these accidents.
