San Jose Swimming Pool Accident Lawyers

Swimming is Not Always Safe in California

There are many types of accidents that can occur at public or private swimming pools. Whether a swimming pool accident involved drowning or other types of injuries, victims of injuries that occurred because of negligence may be able to receive financial compensation from a pool's owner. Parents of a child who was injured, family members affected by a wrongful death because of drowning, or others who have experienced injuries at pools may be able to receive compensation through premises liability lawsuits.

Addressing legal issues related to injuries at swimming pools can be complex, and it is crucial to work with an experienced attorney in these situations. The Law Office of John J. Garvey, III provides representation in multiple types of premises liability cases, including those involving injuries or deaths at public pools, private residences, or water parks. We can help identify the causes of an accident, determine who was responsible, and work with victims to obtain the compensation needed to make a full recovery.

Legal Help With Injuries at Different Types of Pools

An experienced San Jose swimming pool accident attorney can discuss your case, the losses you have experienced, and the potential sources of monetary compensation after a drowning or other pool-related accident. You or your child may have suffered harm in a swimming or diving accident involving one of the following:

  • A city pool
  • A private pool
  • A wading pool
  • A hot tub
  • A fountain
  • A state park

California laws are strict and specific regarding codes for fence height, life preserver accessibility, and supervision in swimming pools. A home swimming pool may be considered to be an attractive nuisance, and a homeowner is responsible for protecting people—even uninvited guests—from preventable harm. Our San Jose swimming pool injury attorney can review the specific circumstances of an accident involving water and determine whether you can pursue a premises liability claim.

The Danger Is Not Just in the Deep End

Was your son or daughter injured as a result of drain suction in a wading pool where the drain was not protected by covers as required by law? Did your child suffer a serious slip and fall accident at a public pool where concrete was slippery? Did you or a family member suffer a near-drowning at a health club or at school resulting in brain damage due to lack of oxygen? Was your family member paralyzed in a diving accident when jumping from a cliff at a state park with a lack of security or proper warnings?

Do not assume that the poor judgment of an injury victim will prevent you from recovering compensation from the appropriate landowner or governmental entity. San Jose swimming pool accident attorney John J. Garvey, III has years of experience to assist him in evaluating your case. He can help identify the parties who were responsible for an accidental death or injury involving a body of water or recreational watercraft, and he is ready to advocate on your behalf and help you receive compensation to address the harm you have suffered because of another party's negligence.
