After An Accident In A Pool

Accidents Can Happen Anywhere

Swimming and diving accidents occur in all types of pools, including:

  • Private backyard swimming pools, above-ground or in-ground
  • Hotel swimming pools
  • Amusement park water features
  • Campground swimming pools
  • School swimming pools
  • YMCA pools
  • Private health club pools

What To Do In The Immediate Aftermath

The legal process of pursuing compensation will differ greatly from one set of circumstances to another. The most important steps to take after any serious injury occurring in or around a swimming pool are:

  • Use lifesaving skills and/or first-aid skills if possible.
  • Call 911.
  • Get medical assistance for the swimmer in trouble as soon as possible.
  • Do not talk to anyone about the accident before talking to an attorney. (This can be hard to do — but very important.)

The outcome of an injury claim or lawsuit can be as critical to the long-term recovery of an accident victim as the skills of doctors who tend to the injured. If you or a loved one suffered a spinal cord injury, a hypoxic brain injury or any other serious injury, the stakes are high and you deserve to know your rights.
