Whether at a hotel or another pool property, swimming pools can unfortunately lead to accidents like brain damage, traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, chemical burns, spinal cord damage and drowning. Some accidents can be impossible to prevent, while others may be due to negligent management of pool properties. This kind of negligence could include insufficient warnings, defective safety equipment like gates or latches, inattention to electric components or others. The swimming pool accident attorneys on our team will help you take action and move toward full and fair compensation.
Team Green is a different kind of law firm. We’re not going to make you promises we can’t deliver on. This is our promise to you: we will guide you through the legal process, working with you through straight talk and personal attention, and we’ll work for you with smart, aggressive representation to get the settlement or judgment you deserve. Other lawyers show their case results on their websites, but not only does that imply results they can’t guarantee — it’s against the Indiana Rules of Professional Conduct (Rule 7.1  (2)). Team Green will be happy to share our past settlements, verdict results, total money recovered, and other relevant information at your free consultation. But you should know that the results of one successful case does not tell us what will happen with you. We will work with you to set realistic expectations of the timeline and money that could be recovered for your unique case.
Frequently Asked Questions for Our Drowning Accident Attorneys
Most hotels will post a liability waiver around their pool or at the front desk. These liability waivers cannot be enforced if they cover all liability for intentional and reckless actions. For example, if a hotel employee pushed a visitor into the pool and discovered that the person could not swim which caused them to drown, this act was intentional. A hotel cannot eliminate liability for intentional acts, and these are never covered by their posted waivers.
Secondary or delayed drowning happens when a swimmer gets water into their lungs. This can lead to breathing problems, coughing, chest pain and extreme fatigue. Letting a child go to sleep after this kind of drowning incident can decrease their chances of recovery or survival.
There are several levels or types of negligence, typically known as negligence and gross negligence. The term “gross negligence” involves a conscious, voluntary level of disregard or inattention to the safety of others. “Negligence,” on the other hand, involves carelessness or not acting or reacting as a reasonable person would. Liability waivers sometimes cover negligence but rarely cover gross negligence.
Injuries commonly associated with swimming pools include brain damage, traumatic brain injuries, chemical burns and spinal cord damage. Drowning and near-drowning are accidents unique to boating and pool situations.
