Swimming Pool Drowning

swimming pool drowningIn 2008, Congress enacted sweeping legislation forcing all public swimming pools and hot tubs to install new drain covers. The law was meant to protect children from getting trapped underwater by older drain/suction systems. Unfortunately, many public pools and spas have failed to comply with these new federal standards, and serious injuries and deaths have occurred.

If your child has suffered serious injuries or died tragically as a result of the negligent actions of a pool owner, I will hold them fully accountable. At the law firm of Stephen Boutros, LTD., I have been handling complex, emotionally-sensitive personal injury cases since 1997.

No Attorney Fees Unless I Recover Compensation for You

Stephen Boutros invests significant time, energy and resources into investigating swimming pool drowning cases, including:

  • Dry drownings
  • Negligent/absent lifeguards
  • Bathtub drownings at day cares
  • Unkempt swimming pools with filth and bacteria making it difficult to locate drowning victims on time

He holds property owners accountable for failing to do everything possible to prevent serious injuries and wrongful death. He carefully investigates every case to determine the exact cause of the injuries and to identity all liable parties. For example, he will investigate if the municipal pool or spa failed to have lifeguards on duty or whether the facility failed to install the proper anti-entrapment drain systems.

Seeking Maximum Compensation

I always consults medical economists and lifecare planners to determine the full extent of a serious injury. I then seek maximum compensation to cover future medical treatment, hospital bills, lost wages and medical equipment. If you tragically lost a loved one in a swimming pool drowning, I will seek compensation for your loss of companionship, funeral expenses, lost income and medical bills associated with the fatal accident.
