Texas Drowning & Pool Accident Lawyers
Leaders in Texas Personal Injury Law
When the weather starts to heat up, many Texans turn to lakes, rivers, pools, and other bodies of water, just hoping to keep cool during the sweltering summer months! While jumping in a cool, refreshing pool can be a great way to beat the heat, it is also important to keep safety in mind. Swimming pools do constitute a potential safety hazard, and it is important to take all necessary precautions in order to avoid a drowning accident. Even in pools where lifeguards are on duty, such as public or city pools, drowning accidents can still occur.
Our lawyers fight for individuals and their loved ones who were harmed while swimming in monitored bodies of water. Find out what you can do—contact our drowning accident lawyers in a free legal consultation.
Determining Negligence in a Drowning Accident
If a lifeguard does not pay proper attention to swimmers in the pool and someone drowns while on their watch, the lifeguard as well as the public pool owner may be charged with negligence. There may be other causes or contributing factors in drowning accidents as well. Defective pool filters have been known to cause drowning by way of suction. The victim may be dragged underwater with his or her hair caught in the filter, and drowned before anyone notices or is able to free them. In these scenarios, the manufacturer of the defective filter may be held liable.
In some situations, drowning accidents are caused by pure carelessness. For example, a parent, guardian, or babysitter may walk away from a child at a pool. An unsupervised child is at a huge risk for drowning in a pool if an experienced swimmer is not there to monitor them. Sometimes, serious accidents are caused by horseplay, or running by a wet pool. If one person is knocked unconscious or is pushed into the deep end of the pool when he / she does not have strong swimming skills, the results can be disastrous.
