Trusted accident lawyers help victims seek compensation after a serious accident
Nothing feels better than taking a refreshing dip in a pool on a hot day. Whether you visit a public swimming pool, hotel pool or enjoy your backyard pool, swimming pools can be dangerous and put loved ones at risk, especially children. The Center for Disease control reported that drowning is the leading cause of injury death for young children ages 1 to 4. For every child under 15 years old who dies from a swimming pool drowning, another 10 children are treated in hospital emergency departments in the United States for nonfatal submersion injuries. At the Larson Law Firm P.C., our injury lawyers know that a swimming pool accident can be catastrophic, especially when fatalities occur. Our swimming pool accident attorneys hold responsible parties and insurance companies accountable, focusing on obtaining a full and fair monetary settlement for your personal injury claim.
Types of pool accident injuries
Swimming pool accidents are considered either fatal or non-fatal. A fatal drowning results in death. However, non-fatal drowning injuries can still cause serious long term damage and life-long health problems. Here are the most common types of pool accident injuries:
- Concussions and traumatic brain injuries
- Broken bones and lacerations from slip and fall accidents
- Spinal cord injuries, including paralysis
- Chemical burns from too much chlorine used in the pool

Swimming pool liability
A day of fun in the sun can quickly turn into a scary experience when a pool accident happens. If you or a loved one swims in a neighbor’s pool and become injured as a result of the homeowner’s negligence, the owner is liable for your accident injuries. For example, if the homeowner failed to put secure fencing around the pool and your child falls into the pool and becomes injured. Homeowners and companies responsible for maintaining public pools must keep the pool area safe, including providing non-slip surfaces on pool decks.
After a swimming pool accident, it can be intimidating to deal with insurance companies, especially if you don’t understand the litigation process. We know insurance companies will do whatever they can to avoid paying the monetary amount you fairly deserve. When we represent you, we have your best interest at heart and work diligently on your behalf to get you full restitution for damages caused by all negligent parties.
