Swimming pool accidents are among the more common sources of catastrophic injuries and wrongful death of children. These accidents may occur anywhere from water parks to backyard swimming pools. At the law firm of Gregory S. Young Co., LPA, we have decades of experience holding negligent parties accountable for swimming and diving accidents in Ohio and northern Kentucky. We will stand by your side and put our experience to work for you.
One of the first questions our Cincinnati swimming pool accident lawyers must ask is: Who is liable? Who was responsible for the accident? Was your child allowed to swim in a friend's or neighbor's backyard pool without supervision? The homeowner could be held accountable for failure to supervise the swimming children.
Lack Of Fences
The law requires that pools be fenced in. This is to prevent children from accessing them without supervision. If the pool where the accident took place was not fenced in properly or at all, the owner of the property may be held accountable for the harm caused.
Swimming Pool Defects
At the heart of a swimming pool accident could be defects in the swimming pool itself. Was depth not properly marked, leading to a diving accident? Was too much chlorine or other chemicals put into the water, causing health problems? Was there a lack of safety features such as life rings and other tools? Pool owners or manufacturers may be held accountable.
