Water Illness Cases
Aquatic Injury Attorney Providing Assistance
There are a variety of serious illnesses that can result from a failure to properly maintain pools and spas in apartments, hotels, motels or in private homes. Some of the types of illnesses that could result from poorly or incorrectly maintained recreational water facilities can include rashes, stomach problems, exposure to Cryptosporidium or other parasites and other serious illnesses. Hot tubs are particularly likely to spread illness, disease or other physical danger as the hot water breaks down the chemicals much more quickly than cold water. If you or a loved one has suffered an illness through the use of a pool, hot tub, water park, water slides or other facility, whether public or private, it is an urgent matter that you contact an
aquatic injury lawyer from our legal team at The Doan Law Firm, P.C. at once.
Determining Causes of Water Illnesses
Children are often the ones affected by serious illnesses, as they tend to spend hours playing in the water, and if it is improperly maintained, whether due to having too many chemicals, too few chemicals, poor filtration system or the presence of E. coli or other problem, the child can suffer serious illness or in the most tragic cases, loss of life through exposure. These are dangerous and deadly bacteria that can propagate in pools, spas and water parks if the facility is not properly maintained; in such cases, the visitors to the property are at serious risk of health problems.
If you or a loved one has suffered an illness through exposure to chemicals, bacteria or parasites after visiting or using a recreational water facility, it is important that you act quickly in contacting our legal team of aquatic injury lawyers in order to initiate a lawsuit against the negligent party. Such facilities endanger all who use them, and seeking to recover compensation for damages in such cases is important not only for you and your family, but for others who may use the facility in the future. The property owner or manager has the duty to protect those who visit the facility from harm. If they have failed to do so, and illness results, they are likely liable for any damages suffered in the case.
