Children, especially those who play sports, may spend more time in a school pool than any other type of swimming pool. While these facilities provide enjoyment and allow children to compete in water sports and races, they also place individuals at risk if left in disrepair with inadequate or untrained supervision. A school pool drowning accident can leave families devastated and unsure of where to turn. A knowledgeable drowning lawyer from The Doan Law Firm, P.C. can help families understand their options, gather evidence to show any liability present, and fight for fair compensation. Attorney Jimmy Doan has more than 15 years of experience in the aquatic safety business. He and his team represent drowning and accident victims and their families nationwide.
School pool operators must meet certain federal safety standards, which are designed to reduce the number of injuries and drowning deaths in public swimming pools. These regulations include supervision of children and the use of anti-entrapment drain covers. Finding negligence on the part of the school or pool operator does not mean proving any intent to harm. Rather, it simply involves evidence that reveals the responsible party failed to take reasonable care when ensuring the safety of swimmers. So, if a lifeguard failed to pay attention to swimmers, or if there was a faulty or inadequate drain cover, a family could, with the help a skilled drowning attorney, hold the right individuals responsible.
