Injuries Involving Defective Pool Fences
Drowning Attorney Working with Victims Nationwide
When a public, private, hotel or motel pool area has defective fencing, it can make possible terrible injury accidents or drowning deaths. These tragic accidents almost always are young children who have managed to get through the fence and into the water. If the child survives falling into the pool, they may suffer serious injury including brain damage. This is the terrible result of a failure to properly maintain a pool and protect children from entering as intended. Some such cases are due to a fence that doesn't adhere to the requirements, and children can fit between the bars of the fence; in other cases the latch on the gate is broken; or cases in which there is some kind of material stacked next to the fence allowing the child access through climbing.
Faulty Pool Fences Resulting in Injury or Death
Each state has a statute of limitations that specifies how long you have to file a lawsuit related to injury or death in a personal injury case, including drowning or injuries from pool-related accidents. When a defective fence has contributed to the injury it may be possible to hold the fence manufacturer liable as part of the lawsuit filed to recover compensation for damages in the case.
