Pennsylvania Swimming Pool Accident Lawyers

Proven Representation for Premises Liability Cases in Carlisle, Hanover, Harrisburg, Lancaster, Schuylkill County & York

From 2020 to 2022, more than 4,500 Americans were killed from drowning, according to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), and this is the top reason for death of children between the ages of one and four. Granted, not all of these occurred in swimming pools, but these numbers also don’t convey the number of serious, life-changing injuries that can also occur in pool accidents, such as traumatic brain injuries, bone fractures, and paralysis from diving or near-drowning accidents.

Whether a serious or tragic accident occurred at a private or a public swimming pool, the heartbreaking reality is that there was likely something that could have been done to prevent the incident, whether by the municipality hiring a competent lifeguard and putting up warning signs, or a property owner setting up protective barriers, for example. At Handler, Henning & Rosenberg LLC, we are well-versed in building strong legal claims to help families hold the responsible parties accountable and to help them recover fair compensation.

Who Can Be at Fault in a Swimming Pool Accident?

Swimming pool accidents are typically a type of premises liability case, which often means that it’s the government, a business, property manager, or a homeowner’s responsibility to protect visitors, customers, or guests from certain hazards. This would include hazards that the property owner should be expected to know about as well as have the means to resolve. When they fail in this hazard-reducing duty to anyone on their property, then they could be on the hook for any accidents that occur.

Some examples of property owner negligence that leads to a swimming pool accident includes a(n):

  • Homeowner or complex owner not putting a fence around the pool
  • Apartment complex failing to put up warning signs that diving isn’t safe at certain depths
  • Public pool not having a lifeguard on duty
  • Property owner failing to maintain water levels or pool equipment

While filing a claim against the party responsible can’t undo the accident and losses you’ve already suffered, it may help prevent such an accident from happening ever again. It can also mean that you’re not left to deal with the resulting expenses yourself, whether you need compensation for ongoing medical bills, income losses, funeral and burial costs, and so forth.
