Pool Accident Attorneys in Peoria, Arizona
Pool accidents are often tragic and devastating in nature, with children and adults alike at risk of suffering serious and fatal injuries in the course of an incident. The road to recovering, whether from your own injuries or the loss of a loved one, is usually difficult due to the financial, emotional, and physical losses that are suffered. Commonly, a victim is blamed for his or her own injuries, with many jumping to the conclusion that a victim was reckless and caused the accident to occur. However, many overlook the dangers present at a pool, especially those that have been poorly maintained. At The Husband & Wife Law Team, our Peoria swimming pool accident lawyers will fight for the truth to be known and for victims to find the benefits they need to move forward from their accidents.
Pools present numerous hazards due to their very nature, combining the dangers of a slip and fall accident with the risk of drowning. Common pool accidents include: slips on wet concrete, accidental drowning (especially for children and those who cannot swim), head and neck injuries from diving, and electrocution due to faulty wires and lighting.
To prevent such accidents from occurring, pools must be properly constructed and maintained, parties should be present at all times when people are in the pool to watch out for accidents and drowning, safety equipment should be available, all drains should be properly covered, and fences should be in place to prevent children from reaching the pool alone. Unfortunately, many of these are lacking at pools, especially ones found in homes.
In the event of an accident, victims must prove that their injuries were the direct result of the dangerous nature of the property, not their own actions. In doing so, the claims made by the victim or victim’s family will be evaluated by an insurance company, which will decide how much compensation should be paid. But insurance companies will seek to pay as little as possible or prove that the accident is not deserving of compensation. As such, using quality legal representation and building a case that proves the legitimacy of the losses being claimed and the fault of the property owner are the keys to making a case successful.
Eye witnesses, photos of the dangers present at the accident scene, medical records, and evidence proving that negligence or recklessness on the part of the property owner led to your accident will help make your premises liability claim a successful one. Owners that know of the dangers present on their property have a responsibility to fix such hazards or warn visitors of their presence. Those that do not can be held responsible for the injuries that result from their inaction.
Whether you have been injured or have lost a loved one, the results of a pool accident are frequently devastating and difficult to recover from physically, financially, and emotionally. At The Husband & Wife Law Team, our Peoria serious injury attorneys understand the losses you are dealing with, which are losses that at-fault parties and insurance companies often do not sympathize with. Over the course of your claim, our legal team will continue to provide you with the support and representation you need in order to find needed compensation.
