Chicago Personal Injury Attorney
Swimming Pool Accident Lawyer
Each year in the United States, thousands of people suffer personal injuries or death in swimming pool related accidents. According to recent studies, drowning is the second leading cause of injury and death to children ages 14 or younger. Statistics show that averages of over 5,000 children, ages 14 and younger, are seriously injured in swimming pool related accidents and close to 1,000 are killed.
Under the premises liability law, property owners are responsible to provide a safe swimming pool area for children and adults. This includes individual homeowners, public pools, hotels, resorts, schools, and water parks. If you or a loved one has suffered a swimming pool related injury or death, you may be entitled to obtain compensation for injuries and damages. Contact an experienced Chicago personal injury attorney to protect your rights and pursue the rightful compensation.

We will diligently work to determine the cause of the accident and have the responsible party held liable for their negligent behavior.
In Illinois, safety measures and regulations are used to protect swimmers from serious injuries and fatal accidents. However, many property owners fail to take the appropriate safety measures and as a result innocent people suffer the consequences. A swimming pool accident may occur due to such factors as:
- Inadequate warning signs
- Poor supervision of children
- Improper safety equipment
- Inadequate fencing or barrier around pools, spas and whirlpools
- Diving board malfunctions
- No lifeguards, or poorly trained lifeguards
- Excessive alcohol on the premises
- Poorly enclosed pool drains, spas and whirlpools
- Overcrowded pool
- Contaminated water
- And others
Unfortunately, far too many swimming pool accidents are the result of property owner negligence. If you, your child, or someone you know is injured or killed because of a swimming pool related accident, contact an experienced Chicago personal injury attorney to pursue the compensation you and your family deserve.
