Swimming Pool Accident Injuries

Swimming pool accidents can result in a number of serious and life-threatening injuries. Diving into shallow water can result in injuries to the brain and spinal cord. If the accident victim is underwater for too long, it could result in permanent brain damage. All too often, swimming pool accidents result in drowning.

The Causes of Swimming Pool Accidents

In handling a swimming pool accident case, an attorney must determine the cause of the accident and identify liable parties. In some cases, a faulty swimming pool component such as a drain or valve is the cause. In some cases, property owners are at fault for not properly fencing in their swimming pool.

Whatever the cause of your swimming pool accident, the Finz firm attorneys will work to help you obtain the compensation you need and deserve.
