Spring Valley Swimming Pool Accident Lawyer
Swimming pool injuries are among the most complex personal injury claims in Nevada. Typically, these victims are children who sustain permanent or fatal injuries. It’s difficult to determine a fair amount of compensation in these claims, especially for future financial and emotional losses. Additionally, these claims often have ownership issues. A local entity or an out-of-state holding company could be the legally responsible party. Finally, either owner negligence or a defective product could cause a swimming pool injury.
An experienced Spring Valley swimming pool accident lawyer quickly evaluates your case and finds answers to these vexing questions. Once our professional team develops a plan of action, we don’t quit until we obtain maximum compensation for your serious injuries. This compensation usually includes money for economic losses, such as medical bills, and noneconomic losses, such as pain and suffering. Additional punitive damages might be available as well, especially in defective product claims.
Swimming Pool Drownings
Defective drains often cause swimming pool drownings. If the drain sucks in too much water, an invisible riptide forms under the water. These currents can drag even experienced swimmers under the waves. Inexperienced swimmers have even less of a chance.
Legally, manufacturers are strictly liable for the injuries their defective products cause. The underlying defect could be a:
- Manufacturing defect, like a cheap component, or
- Design defect, such as a mechanism that processes too much water.
Regardless of the nature of the defect, manufacturers often ignore known risks, so they can keep selling products and making money. The aforementioned punitive damages are usually available in such cases. Only a large amount of damages convinces these companies to change the way they do business and put people before profits.
Builders, owners, and employees, such as lifeguards, could also be legally responsible for swimming pool injuries.
Many builders are in such a hurry to complete projects that they take dangerous safety shortcuts. Frequently, innocent swimmers pay the price in these situations.
Owner negligence is usually a failure to properly supervise swimmers and take care of physical safety hazards, like excessively wet decks. Frequently, owners try to use the assumption of the risk defense to defeat these injury claims. A warning sign, like “No Lifeguard On Duty,” makes this defense easier to prove, but compensation is usually still available in these cases.
Speaking of lifeguards, these individuals are negligent if they fail to do their jobs or they were not competent to do the job in the first place. Owners are vicariously liable for damages in these cases.
Spring Valley Swimming Pool Accident Lawyers and Swimming Pool Poisonings
Generally, poisonings involve an improper use of cleaning chemicals. Once again, a Spring Valley swimming pool accident lawyer must carefully investigate such claims to determine the cause.
Defective product swimming pool poisonings often involve defective pumps. If this mechanism isn’t working right, a chlorine gas cloud could form. This poison gas could cause permanent and debilitating lung injuries.
Speaking of chlorine, the chlorine level in the pool must be almost perfect. Too many chemicals, and swimmers could sustain chemical burns to their ears, noses, and throats. Too few chemicals, and dangerous bacteria could thrive in the water.
