Seeking Financial Compensation for a Swimming Pool Accident
Swimming pool accidents can have immediate and far-reaching consequences for victims. For example, certain types of traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) may occur when being underwater for too long causes inadequate blood and oxygen flow to a person’s brain.
The Shepherd Center confirms that with hypoxic brain injuries, a restricted flow of oxygen can cause the gradual death and impairment of brain cells. Similarly, anoxic brain injuries can occur when a victim loses consciousness due to a lack of oxygen and blood flow.
TBIs like these often require extensive medical treatment. If you suffer a TBI or other injury in a pool accident, you may quickly discover that your medical bills outpace your capacity to pay for them. This is where a Sarasota swimming pool accident lawyer can step up to help you seek financial compensation for your medical expenses and other damages.
Some types of recoverable damages may include:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Rehabilitation and therapeutic programs
- Psychological trauma
- Lost wages
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of enjoyment of life
How a Lawyer from the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine Can Help You
Your lawyer can work to uncover the cause of the swimming pool accident by gathering evidence and examining any relevant laws. If the swimming pool accident occurred on a piece of public property, your lawyer may collect footage from surveillance cameras and review maintenance records. When any property owner – public or private – fails to maintain their property and promote safety for their visitors, they may be liable for accidents that occur.
In addition to the property owners, your lawyer can also speak with witnesses and anyone else connected to your swimming pool accident, freeing you from having to engage in potentially distressing conversations with others who were closely related to this traumatic event.
A Sarasota swimming pool accident lawyer from the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine can handle all this correspondence and more, including negotiations to recover any financial compensation you may be entitled to. To learn more, call us today at 1-800-747-3733.
Laws That May Apply to Swimming Pool Accidents
If a swimming pool accident leads to the wrongful death of your loved one or family member, it is important to be aware that certain local, state, and federal laws restrict the amount of time you have to take legal action. For example, Florida Statute § 95.11(4)(d) sets a limit of just two years to pursue legal action for wrongful death. Attempting to take legal action after this statute of limitations will likely leave you with no path to justice.
A Sarasota swimming pool lawyer from our firm can examine any laws that apply to your situation, including a close inspection of local, state, and federal laws. Swimming pool accidents often apply to many layers of the law, and your legal team can explore each of them as they defend you.
