Virginia Graeme Baker Act Our Goal: Winning & Winning Big

Virginia Graeme Baker Act

Skilled Drowning Lawyer for Clients Nationwide

Passed in 2007, the Virginia Graeme Baker Act is designed to limit the number of individuals injured and killed in pool accidents. The law increases federal safety regulations related to pool and spa drains, requiring all public swimming pools and hot tubs to have compliant drain covers as well as backup anti-entrapment systems when a single main drain is present.

The legislation is named after 7-year-old Virginia Graeme Baker, an avid swimmer who got stuck to a hot tub drain in 2002 and drowned. If you or a loved one were recently involved in a pool or spa accident, a skilled drowning lawyer can help determine if the swimming pool or hot tub in question met the latest federal safety standards. The Doan Law Firm, P.C. has extensive experience representing victims and their families in water-related accident throughout the United States.

Fight for Compensation with a Drowning Attorney

Many public pools and spas do not meet federal safety requirements when it comes to proper drain covers, fencing, supervision, and other factors. A drowning lawyer can determine if these regulations were violated and gather evidence to hold the right individuals responsible. When you choose The Doan Law Firm, P.C., you benefit from the know-how of a large firm and the personal attention and dedication that comes from working with a smaller law firm.

Holding many water safety certifications, the founder of the firm is exceptionally qualified to take action, and to identify what parties are liable. He and his team handle each case with the utmost respect and care, while fighting aggressively for the maximum compensation possible for damages incurred. The firm is available for your questions or concerns, and to discuss your case.
