Swimming Pool Accidents

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 disabling 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.
