According to the parents of a 4-year-old, the hotel in which their daughter drowned were in part responsible for their daughter's drowning death in the hotel swimming pool. Despite evidence that the hotel violated its own policies and county maintenance regulations, the parents' case against the hotel was still defeated in court - the jury decided that the hotel was not liable for the child's drowning.
Don't let this happen to you. If you or someone you love has been the victim of a hotel pool accident or drowning, make sure to seek the help of an experienced, qualified drowning attorney. The Doan Law Firm, P.C. will aggressively fight for the legal rights of victims and families who have suffered injury or loss of life.
The case against that hotel failed, even though it was fair to expect that the hotel should be held partly responsible for Iyana's death because they allowed for a birthday party in the pool area, violating the hotel's own policies. Furthermore, it was determined that on the day of the child's drowning, the pool's water was so cloudy that the drain cover at the base of the pool was not visible. Per county regulations, a pool must be closed if the bottom cannot be seen.
It is hard to imagine how a jury could not hold the hotel liable for this tragedy, but unfortunately, without the right legal representation, victims and their families could be at a disadvantage when facing the extensive team of attorneys a corporation hires for the defense against claims. In fact, many families are too intimidated to even try and may agree to a very low settlement out of court, or may just give up completely. Although no amount of money can compensate for a severe injury or loss of a loved one, fighting back against negligence can help create safer conditions for future hotel guests. Plus, financial compensation can help cover any medical or funeral costs associated with the tragedy.
