California Swimming Pool And Hot Tub Accidents

Swimming pools and hot tubs are as abundant in California as palm trees and actors. But with this abundance is an increased risk of injury or death for children and adults due to negligent supervision or maintenance of the pool and pool area by a property owner.

In 2005, approximately 10 people per day died from fatal unintentional drownings. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that "More than one in four fatal drowning victims are children 14 and younger." In most cases, a drowning could have been avoided by simple preventative measures such as proper supervision of young swimmers, self-closing and self-latching gates around pools, and/or locking hot tub covers.

Pursuing Your Damages

We understand the devastating physical, emotional, and financial impact that a serious injury or swimming related death can have upon its victim and his or her loved ones. But loss of a life or serious injury alone does not mean that someone else is financially responsible for those losses.

In order to hold the responsible party accountable, the lawyers at Avila & Shaddow vigorously investigate into the circumstances that led to the accident and utilize swimming pool safety experts and/or accident reconstructionists to assist them in the identification of the negligence, intentional conduct, or safety hazard that caused the accident.

Once it is determined how the accident occurred and whether something could have reasonably been done to prevent it, we relentlessly pursue compensation for past, present and future medical care, financial loss, loss of consortium, and pain and suffering.
