Maryland Swimming Pool Injury Lawyers
Swimming pools can be a welcome, fun distraction from summer heat. However, leaving a child unattended or inattentive guards can result in serious, life-altering injuries.
At the law firm of Cohen, Snyder, Eisenberg & Katzenberg, P.A., our attorneys represent injured swimming pool injury victims in Maryland. We also represent the families of those who have lost a loved one in a swimming pool accident.
Types of Swimming Pool Accidents and Injuries
According to the CDC, drowning is a leading cause of death in children aged one to four in the United States. For children ages five to fourteen, drowning is the second leading cause of death following car accidents. Many of these deaths and injuries occur in swimming pools.
At our firm, we stand up for the rights of those who have lost a loved one in a wrongful death in a pool. Additionally, we help those who have suffered serious injuries such as:
- Brain injuries from lack of oxygen
- Head trauma from slip-and-fall accidents
- Neck and back injuries from diving
- Broken bones and other injuries
Seeking Compensation for a Swimming Pool Accident
After a swimming pool accident, it can be difficult to know whom to blame and where to seek compensation. If the accident occurred on another’s property and was the result of the property owner’s negligence, you can pursue compensation through a premises liability action. If the accident was the result of a faulty heating system or other pool equipment, you may have a products liability claim against the manufacturer. You may also be covered under the pool owners’ insurance, or your own coverage may provide benefits.
