Boca Raton Drowning Accident Attorneys
A properly operated, maintained and secured pool can provide enjoyment for swimmers, particularly on a hot summer day in the Sunshine State. However, ignoring potential and existing problems and basic safety standards can turn recreation into tragedy.
At the law firm of Silver & Silver, P.A., we provide compassionate legal advocacy for family members grieving the drowning death of a loved one. Our attorneys know that financial support will not bring back the person you lost. However, compensation from a wrongful death claim can help you transition from the tragedy to a new chapter in your life.
REPRESENTING CLIENTS IN BOCA RATON, BOYNTON BEACH AND WELLINGTON AND THROUGHOUT SOUTH FLORIDA
Drownings, particularly those that involve small children, can take minutes. In that short time, lives can be forever changed due to:
- Improper maintenance of a pool and surrounding areas
- Poor or lack of supervision
- Inadequate training of lifeguards
- Lack of staff certified in first aid and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
- Defective equipment, including ladders, slides and drains
- Lack of proper safety equipment, including shepherd’s hooks
- Pools with slope transitions without a safety line
For a family, the loss is incomprehensible when a loved one drowns in a supposedly safe pool. The death of a primary wage earner creates financial uncertainty for loved ones. A spouse loses support and companionship. The drowning victim likely suffered pain and fear in the moments before succumbing. All those factors come into play when determining damages and fighting for maximum compensation.
