When Should You File a Lawsuit?

While some accidents could not have been reasonably prevented, others happen due to a failure of a property manager to take care of their premises. When a community pool’s gate fails to close, allowing a child to enter unsupervised, this could be an instance of negligence.

Other preventable drowning circumstances include:

  • Negligence or lack of training on the part of a lifeguard
  • No lifeguard where there should be one
  • Manufacturing defects in a pool or hot tub
  • Lack of effective signage

In most cases, a pool will have an insurance company covering any damages incurred on their premises. This means you will need to have a strong case prepared to prove that there was negligence on the part of the pool owner.

No matter how much proof you have about your claims, you will still face opposition from the other party. Make sure you have an experienced personal injury lawyer on your side to help you win.
