Newport Swimming Pool Accident Lawyers
If you or a loved one has been injured in a swimming pool accident, you may be entitled to compensation. While swimming at the pool is usually a fun thing to do with family or friends, sometimes accidents happen that leave people seriously injured or even killed due to a variety of factors, including the negligence of another person or organization. If you find yourself in this situation, you are probably dealing with not only the traumatic aftermath of an injury or death, but also the medical expenses that go along with it. Ambulances, hospital stays, and time is taken off work to handle the situation are all huge drains on your finances while you’re at your most vulnerable. If the accident that caused injury or death was the result of someone else’s negligence, you should be compensated fairly for the pain, suffering, and expense they put you through.

Why You Need an Attorney
If you are seeking justice and compensation after a swimming pool accident, it is not recommended that you move forward with your case without consulting with an attorney. Although it might seem like representing yourself is the easier, more cost-effective way to win your case, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Going into a lawsuit without help from someone who has been through similar cases before and knows what they’re doing is a huge mistake that will almost certainly prevent you from winning any money in settlements or getting justice for the negligence that caused the accident. An experienced attorney can be an invaluable resource to you by collecting evidence, talking to witnesses and experts, keeping track of the details of your case such as important dates, and presenting and arguing your case. Pool accident cases are not as open-and-shut as you might think. In fact, pool safety laws vary depending on the city, so there is often a lot of gray area in a situation which may seem clear to you. Additionally, handling a personal injury or wrongful death claim after such a scary and tragic accident is likely not going to be productive towards moving on in a healthy way. Lawsuits can be stressful and time-consuming, and you should focus on recovering, or helping a loved one recover, while your lawyer does the heavy-lifting for you.

Cases We Handle
Swimming pools are often loud, crowded, and rowdy, and people are more likely to get hurt when they’re having fun and not paying close attention to their surroundings. There are many different kinds of injuries that would fall under the category of swimming pool accidents, including head injuries, lacerations, and drowning, which can all occur for many reasons. The following is a list of common swimming pool injuries:
- Broken bones – Slipping and falling on slick ground or diving in the shallow end of the pool can cause broken bones, especially when an area is not properly guarded or safety measures are not taken to mark dangerous areas
- Drowning – Drowning often occurs when a weak swimmer or small child falls into the water.
- Electrocution – Radios, lighting fixtures, and other electronic equipment can cause injury by electrocution when broken or plugged in too close to water.
- Entanglement in pool tools or machinery – Heavy ropes or cables trapping a swimmer or clothes caught in pool machinery can lead to drowning or tripping.
Inattentive lifeguards, poorly marked safety features such as water depth, and defective pool equipment can all lead to dangerous swimming pool accidents. When something like this happens to you or a loved one, you deserve to be compensated for everything that follows, including hospital bills, ambulances, and pain and suffering. Filing a lawsuit also helps to reduce the risk of accidents in the future. Public pools and private pools are both susceptible to dangers, but it is the responsibility of the pool’s owner to maintain a safe environment where everyone can have fun. It is also the responsibility of manufacturers to put out products that are going to be safe and reliable. At the Law Offices of Ronald J. Resmini, we will help you pursue your swimming pool accident case and win the compensation you need to return to your life as painlessly as possible.
