Protecting the Rights of People Injured in Swimming Pool Accidents

We handle all matters involved in an injury claim related to a swimming pool accident, gathering and preserving all evidence to support your case. We will prepare and file all the documents necessary to pursue full and fair compensation, and will be your advocate in all hearings or proceedings.

We take claims involving a wide range of swimming pool accidents, such as:

  • Drownings — Allowing inexperienced swimmers in a pool without supervision, or failure to erect and maintain a proper barrier around a private or public pool
  • Hypoxia (deprivation of oxygen) injuries, particularly in small children who have been underwater too long
  • Diving accidents — Head or spinal cord injury from diving in shallow water, lack of supervision or defective diving boards
  • Slip and fall injuries — Wet pool tiles or diving boards, trips over hoses
  • Injuries caused by defective or improperly maintained pool drains

Attorney Hood will pursue monetary damages for all your losses, including lost wages and income, unreimbursed medical costs, physical pain and suffering, and loss of companionship or consortium. We litigate claims involving any type of serious or catastrophic injuries, from brain and spinal cord injury, broken bones or paralysis to amputation or loss of limb. We also handle wrongful death claims arising out of swimming pool accidents.
