Child Drowning Deaths Should Be Preventable
The most frustrating part about child drowning deaths in Miami is that nearly every single death should be 100% preventable. Time and again, investigations show that a child who loses their life in a swimming pool accident only does so because an adult did not provide enough care, caution, and attention. Approximately 99% of child drowning deaths that have happened in the city in recent years could have been stopped.
The negligence that causes or allows child drowning deaths in Miami is the reason why we fight. The Doan Law Firm knows how to hold parties liable for such unforgivable negligence that tears families apart.
Regulated Swimming Pools in Miami
Regulations set by Florida State and Miami-Dade County subject certain swimming pools to various safety requirements. Although private pools are popular in Miami, a large percentage of pools in the city are public or open to patrons, which means that they must meet these safety standards. If a pool fails to meet the set standards and someone drowns in it, then the pool owner or property manager could be entirely liable for the drowning death.
Swimming pools often subject to strict regulations in Miami include those found at:
- Public parks
- Health clubs
- Day spas
- Theme parks
- Residential complexes
- Resorts and hotels
Resort Swimming Pool Dangers
Resort swimming pools are often among the most dangerous types of swimming pools in Miami. Why? The answer lies in the false sense of security that resort pools can create.
People who stay at a Miami resort expect a luxurious experience, including lifeguards and life preservers at the hotel pool. However, most resorts in Miami don’t employ lifeguards. Many don’t even keep a life preserver near the pool for anyone to use.
If disaster strikes and someone has a crisis in the pool, then there might not be anyone around to help them. Furthermore, the risk posed to children staying at the resort will be even greater because many resorts don’t have locking doors to the pool area. Or, if the doors do lock, they can be easily opened by a child who has a room key.
