Fort Myers Swimming Pool Accident Attorneys
Compensation for serious injuries and drowning deaths
A swimming pool is a pleasant respite from hot Florida weather. Unfortunately, accidents in pools also regularly cause injuries and deaths throughout the state. Many of these cases involve children or young adults whose lives are cut short or who face lifelong disabilities. In almost every case, fault can be traced to the residential pool owner, public facilities manager or product manufacturer.
Founded in 1995, personal injury law firm Viles & Beckman, LLC adamantly pursues the corporations or people responsible for accidents that result in:
- Diving accidents
- Spinal cord injuries
- Head trauma
- Falls on slippery surfaces
Responsibilities of pool owners and management
Several Florida statutes are designed to protect you from negligent pool owners and operators. The Residential Swimming Pool Safety Act requires homeowners to take certain crucial measures to protect children and elderly adults from injuries — including the installation of barrier fencing and exit alarms. Public facilities should retain qualified lifeguards or warn guests about the absence of lifesaving personnel. In addition, managers are responsible for keeping pools maintained and clean. Our Fort Myers premises liability attorneys hold these careless parties accountable for their actions.
Liability arising from design, production or sale of pools
Pool designers, manufacturers and vendors are held to stringent standards of safety under the products liability doctrine. These parties have no excuse for not abiding by the law to make products safe for consumers. We successfully establish their wrongdoing and demand they pay for the injuries they caused you.
