Florida, 300 to 500 people die each year as a result of drowning
accidents. Thousands more each year were hospitalized for “near
drowning” incidents. Many of these accidents involve children and/or
pools not properly secured.
Under Florida law, the owner of a property where a pool accident occurs is responsible to act in a reasonably prudent manor and to do those things that a reasonably prudent pool owner would do. Obviously, at a minimum, a pool owner is required to comply with Florida Statutes and local city or county ordinances pertaining to pool safety.
There are particular statutes and local rules governing Pool Safety in Florida and you need a lawyer who is well versed in the particular duties and responsibilities pursuant to local and state laws that would apply to your pool drowning or pool injury case. Let Robert Gluck be your Florida Pool Accident / Drowning Lawyer because I have handled many of these cases over the past 22 years and am well familiar with the particular code requirements. Gates, pool locks, drain covers, written policies and procedures are just some of the areas that need to be investigated in these cases.
Since swimming pools are as much a part of Florida as golf courses and beaches, accidents are bound to happen. My firm handles cases against resorts that fail to have life guards on duty, fail to have enough life guards on duty, fail to have adequately trained lifeguards on duty, fail to have appropriate rules, procedures and guidelines in place for the safe operation of the pool area, fail to maintain their equipment pursuant to code – such as appropriate drain covers.
My firm has also handled cases where near drowning incidents have occurred at someone else’s home during a sleepover or a birthday party or other situations where the homeowner, or party responsible for the supervision of children, fails to do so, resulting in injury or death to a child.
You should hire a lawyer right away if such a pool incident should occur because having the scene photographed, inspected and preserved is critical to proving liability in any pool / drowning case.
