Swimming and Drowning Accidents

Swimming and Drowning Accident Lawyers

As most people may already know, just about all Florida homes, apartment complexes, and living communities have access to a pool. The year-round sunshine allows for maximum aquatic enjoyment. However, many people seem to forget that even the most leisurely pools can be dangerous, especially for children. Florida leads the country in death by drowning of children ages 1-4. If you were injured in a swimming accident or lost a loved one in a drowning incident, our team at DeCarlis & Sawyer can help you achieve the compensation you seek.

Accidents Due to Negligence

Pool and water safety is one of the first things we teach our children in Florida, but children still require supervision. If your child was injured or drowned due to the negligence of their supervisor (babysitter, neighbor, or homeowner), the said supervisor needs to be held accountable for failing to follow safety regulations and provide your child with responsible supervision. In addition to competent supervision, there are other regulations that pool owners must follow to prevent the accidental injury or death of a child. Florida state law requires that pools have effective barriers, gates, and other safety measures to prevent young and inexperienced swimmers from entering the pool area without a supervisor. These pool regulations apply to both under and above ground pools.

Those Responsible Should Be Held Accountable

We understand that there is no compensation great enough to sooth the pain of losing a loved one, but if the party responsible is not held accountable, then it is likely that someone else could get hurt in the future. Our lawyers are compassionate, but unyielding when it comes to justice. You will get the personal attention you deserve while we fight for the compensation you are entitled to.
