Las Vegas Pool Accidents Lawyers

According to the Center for Disease Control, there were over 3,300 deaths related to drowning or submersion in the year 2000. This rate is exceptionally high for children under the age of 16 which represent an astounding 25% of all drowning victims. About 350 children under 5 drown in swimming pools each year. Drowning is the second leading cause of death for this age group, after automobile incidents. Another 2,600 children are treated in emergency rooms each year for near drowning incidents.

Adding to this terrible tragedy are approximately 5,000 more children who suffered near drowning emergencies. Many of these children will end up having permanent neurological disability.

The vast majority of these accidents occur in backyard swimming pools.

Property and home owners who have a pool on their property are required to have a fence around that area.

Additional safety recommendations include:
  • Four sided isolation fencing at last five feet high
  • Self closing and self latching gates
  • Fencing should enclose the pool and spa entirely, preventing direct access
Other safety precautions include:
  • Motion detectors
  • Effective pool covers
  • Remote cameras
The irresponsibility of swimming pool owners can have tragic consequences. If your family has lost a family member due to a drowning accident or if a family member or loved one has suffered permanent brain damage as a result of near drowning, you may have legal options.

Accidents in and around pools present very special circumstances. Injuries are usually more serious and involve a series of complicated laws. Early investigation is the key to handling these cases. Our knowledge of the law along with our investigative skills allows Sam Harding Law Firm, the competitive edge you want and need on your side.

While no amount of compensation can undo the terrible tragedy caused by a swimming pool accident, a civil law claim can aid your family in dealing with the monetary devastation of a serious injury or death. By holding swimming pool owners accountable, you can also aid in the prevention of similar accidents from affecting other families.
