In sunny San Diego, hanging out by a swimming pool is a common pastime. Unfortunately, too often, a family day at the pool can become tragic. Thousands of people die or are catastrophically injured each year in drowning accidents, and children are particularly at risk.

The loss of a loved one in a drowning accident is something no one should have to go through. We know that dealing with logistics, such as planning and paying for services, coupled with severe emotional distress, can be overwhelming.

Gomez Trial Attorneys offers a free, no-obligation case evaluation if you are looking for legal guidance from a swimming pool accident law firm. Contact us for a free case evaluation.

Causes of Pool Drowning Accidents

Some of the most common causes of pool drowning accidents include:

  • Poor swimming abilities, which contribute to many drowning accidents.
  • Poor supervision, or the inadequate supervision of swimmers, particularly children, when coupled with poor swimming abilities results. Children routinely overestimate their swimming abilities and, if inadequately supervised, can quickly end up in the deep end and beyond their capability to keep themselves safe.
  • Unprotected pools, or those that are out in the open with no fence or other proper barrier, fail to keep trespassers who are drawn to them. These trespassers are often neighborhood children just looking to have some fun.
  • Head injuries, typically those suffered when someone’s head hits the bottom or edge of the pool, can result in unconsciousness or cognitive impairment that can result in drowning even when the victim is a strong swimmer.
  • Drug or alcohol consumption, which impairs cognitive function, can contribute to drowning in two ways. Impairment can cause the person themselves to drown or not notice that another person is in distress.

Certain populations are particularly at risk of drowning: children, those with seizure disorders, and anyone who is unable to swim (or is inexperienced).

Working With a San Diego Drowning Attorney

After a drowning accident, the sad reality is that the harm, whether death or catastrophic injury, cannot be undone. The only way that you can be compensated for the harm suffered after a drowning accident is through financial compensation. Many drowning deaths are preventable, and at Gomez Trial Attorneys, we strongly believe that those responsible should be held accountable. We have a strong track record of success in personal injury cases that includes over $750 million in verdicts and settlements with more than 135 awards of more than one million dollars each.

When you work with us, our swimming pool drowning lawyers take over the legal aspects of your case immediately so that you can focus on healing and grieving after the accident. We evaluate the case, develop claims, file the lawsuit, negotiate with insurance companies, take and defend depositions, and do everything else needed to pursue your case. Unlike some other law firms, when needed to get you full and fair compensation, we will take your case to trial.

How To Prevent Drowning Accidents

After a drowning occurs, families often want to help ensure that others never go through what they’ve gone through. Drowning accidents are often preventable, and the following tips can help prevent accidents:

  • Don’t drink or consume intoxicating substances near a pool
  • Fence in and child-proof access to pool areas
  • Supervise children (and others who cannot swim) constantly
  • Don’t do breathwork where you hyperventilate or hold your breath for a long time
  • Use life jackets and other appropriate flotation devices
  • Enroll children in swim and water safety classes early
  • Ask about pool safety supervision before allowing children to play at friends’ homes who have pools
  • Do not rely on lifeguards to supervise children at public pools
  • Consider purchasing pool alarms and other safety devices
