Apartment Pool Drowning
File a Wrongful Death Claim with Help from a Lawyer
Apartment complexes often have a pool as one of the amenities residents and their guests can enjoy. As such, residents have reason to expect that the apartment management will not only keep the pool maintained, but that certain safety precautions will be taken to keep the residents who use it safe from harm. Any failure to do so could lead to innocent lives being lost. If you or someone you love has drowned or had a
near-drowning experience in an apartment pool, you need to seek counsel from a drowning lawyer at once.

When a drowning accident is caused by negligence or neglect on the part of the apartment management, Attorney Doan and his firm will work tirelessly to help you file a lawsuit or claim to seek damages for all sustained injuries and losses.
Law Firm Representing Drowning Cases Nationwide
There are many actions apartment building owners, management companies, and their staff are required to take to safeguard a property so as to protect its residents. A permanently-posted sign listing the "pool rules", warning notices alerting guests that no lifeguard is on duty and a security gate to keep unauthorized guests and non-residents from gaining entry, are just a few of the bare minimum actions that should be taken to help prevent an apartment pool accident or drowning. When their responsibilities are neglected, injury can result. A defective pool fence can allow easy access to a child who would otherwise be prevented from going in the pool area without adult supervision.
A broken pool drain can cause an individual to get stuck underwater with no way to break free. Using the wrong type of sealant on the pavement around a pool can cause it to be extra slippery and put people at risk of serious injury or death. Pool chemical accidents caused by an excess or misuse of pool chemicals could leave an unsuspecting resident suffering from painful chemical burns. The physical and emotional impact caused by this type of accident, as well as the financial toll it can take on the victim's family, is often more than most people realize. In some instances, victims who may have suffered serious brain damage due to lack of oxygen could be left unable to care for themselves. Care would have to be provided on a full-time basis for the rest of their lives.
The cost of having to provide that level of attention and life-long care should not be the responsibility of the victim or the victim's family. The responsible party or parties need to be held legally and financially liable for their actions and his firm can help.
