Summer finds many children and their families enjoying the fun and cool of public and city swimming pools. Although these pools have maximum capacity requirements and lifeguards on duty, the high volume of swimmers and sunbathers lead to an increased risk of accidents and drowning deaths. Each year, individuals across the United States suffer injuries and death as a result of visiting city or public pools. The Doan Law Firm, P.C. has a lengthy track record of representing accident victims and their families nationwide. Attorney Jimmy Doan is a skilled drowning lawyer with more than 15 years of experience in the aquatic safety business. His team of legal professionals work hard to get families the compensation they deserve.
Federal legislation requires operators of public and city pools and spas to meet certain safety standards. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has worked to enforce these standards, some of which include fencing around pools, supervision of children, and anti-entrapment pool drain covers. Recent changes to federal laws require drain covers to meet certain specifications, which are designed to limit the number of drowning deaths and accidents related to pool drains.
However, meeting these requirements is not as simple as checking items off of a list. A public pool may have met the child supervision requirement, but lifeguard negligence could still be a factor in a case if the lifeguard was inattentive or failed to respond to the accident within a reasonable amount of time. That is why is critical to have an experienced drowning lawyer help you gather evidence related your situation.
