Swimming Pool & Water Park Injuries
Who wouldn't want to relax by the pool on a hot day? Or unwind in the hot tub after a long week? And, on those summer days when the sun is beating down, a water park sounds like one of the best places in the world to be, right?
Unfortunately, while swimming pools and water parks can be a lot of fun, they can also be very dangerous. If a park is mismanaged, and safety concerns are neglected, guests can be hurt or even killed. If a swimming pool is installed without proper safety features, tragedy can strike.

Our attorneys are dedicated to educating swimmers and hot tub owners of the dangers and risks of swimming pool and hot tub drowning and injuries.
Nonfatal drownings can cause brain damage that may result in long-term disabilities, including memory problems, learning disabilities, and permanent loss of basic functioning.
Swimming pool and hot tub injuries also include slips and falls on slippery pool decking surfaces which have not been properly cleaned and/or scrubbed. As with dog bites, the owner of the pool is typically a friend or family member. The case can be complex and will require a personal injury attorney to provide emotional separation between the victims and the property owner.
