Los Angeles Drowning Accident Lawyer
Compassionate Legal Support After a Pool Accident
Swimming pool accidents are one of the leading causes of accidental deaths in residential settings in Los Angeles and other major cities. While this truth is harrowing, it is also frustrating because virtually every single swimming pool death should be completely preventable with more care and attention. It is only right to hold the pool owner or property manager liable if possible.
The Doan Law Firm and our Los Angeles pool drowning attorneys are here to help you explore your legal options if you lost a loved one to a pool drowning or if you were hurt in a near-drowning accident in a swimming pool. We can work on cases of accidents that happened in private and public swimming pools alike. As one of the few firms in the country that focuses exclusively on swimming pool accidents, you know that you can trust your case with us.

Child Drownings in Los Angeles
The majority of swimming pool drowning deaths in the country are suffered by young children, often under the age of five. This statistic remains true here in Los Angeles, California. Children require constant supervision around swimming pools, whether they have been taught how to swim well or not.
Essentially every child drowning death in a swimming pool is caused by negligence, too. An adult who looks away or leaves the area for too long is committing an act of negligence. A hotel that doesn’t keep lifesavers next to the pool or that doesn’t notify guests that there is no lifeguard on duty is negligent, too. Simple changes could have prevented these acts of negligence and, in turn, the accidental deaths that they can cause.
Swimming Pool Regulations in Los Angeles
The California Health and Safety Code for swimming pools applies to swimming pools in Los Angeles – the city and the county – as well. The regulations cover lifeguard postings, chlorine levels, lighting use, deck design, and much more.
Commercial swimming pools in these locations must follow the safety regulations of Los Angeles:
- Housing complexes
- Water parks
- Health clubs
- Mobile home parks
- Homeowner associations
- Municipal exercise centers
- YMCA facilities
- And much more
If you lost a loved one to a swimming pool drowning at any such commercial or private swimming pool, then our legal team can investigate the regulations and safety codes that are applied there. The pool owner’s or property manager’s liability could increase significantly if we discover that a regulation was ignored or violated.
