Columbia Swimming Pool Accident Attorney
Representation for Victims in Columbia, South Carolina
Both children and adults can become victims of serious injury or die in
or around a swimming pool. Drowning is all too frequent, but there are
other types of injuries that are extremely serious. Swimmers can slip
on diving boards, or dive into shallow waters, leading to spinal cord
or head and brain injuries, and a lifetime of treatment and care. Wet
walking surfaces around the pool can cause
slip and falls. There are also near-drownings, leaving victims alive but with permanently
brain injuries. Swimming pool accidents call for professional representation by a Columbia
personal injury lawyer. It's important to start investigating the cause of an accident
as soon as possible after it occurs.
Swimming pool accidents can be a result of the conditions of the premises,
such as broken or slippery surfaces that pose a danger to swimmers or
visitors. Drains can have an excessive amount of suction, pinning a body
to the bottom of the pool, creating a tragic situation. Pool owners might
not have the proper gates and locks around the pool. A public pool might
not have a required lifeguard on duty. There are many other hazards possible
that could result in an accident around or in a swimming pool. At the
Law Office of James R. Snell, Jr., LLC, our drowning accident attorney
is prepared to assist you and protect your right to full compensation.
