Swimming and Diving Accidents

Swimming pools can be fun on a warm day, but that fun can quickly turn to tragedy. When residential and business owners and managers negligently fail to make their swimming pools safe, death and serious injuries might occur. People can drown, fall on wet concrete or other surfaces, contract infectious illnesses from unclean water, sustain brain or neck injuries from diving, break their bones, and more.

There are certain basic safety precautions that owners and managers of public and private premises should reasonably take with respect to their swimming pools and diving boards. Children are particularly vulnerable to swimming pool accidents because they don’t appreciate the risks that pools create. Reasonable care should be exercised to eliminate dangers and otherwise protect children from the pool. The pool should be supervised when children are using it. Warning signs should be conspicuously displayed. Many diving accidents occur when a person dives into the shallow end because no signs are posted. Measures should be taken to make sure that the water is clean and that the chemicals are appropriately balanced.

What to Do If You’ve Been Injured:

If you have been injured in a swimming or diving accident at someone’s home, apartment, hotel, motel, place of business, or any other residential or business place, you should call a lawyer after you have received medical treatment. A lawyer will help you determine whether you are entitled to be compensated for your injuries.

Review: Altman and Altman LLP

    I was coming home from work traveling on 95 south at a complete stop when a Jeep Cherokee traveling 65 MPH hit me from behind. Injuries suffered were a Torn Rotator Cuff, Torn MCL, Blood Clot with Neck and Back damage. I had no idea how complex the process was. Dealing with the Insurance companies, Surgeries, PT, legal issues, doctors and bills. It was overwhelming and time consuming. David Altman stepped took care of everything every step of the way in an incredibly professional caring way. He was quick to respond to any questions or concerns including weekends. In 2 years there wasn't one time where a phone call wasn't returned with in 30 minutes. David kept me positive during the most negative times. 2 years later I'm pretty close to being back where I was and David is the reason why. I was able to just focus on getting better and he took care of everything else. He was very aggressive and professional with the insurance companies in this settlement of this case. He kept me up to date on a regular basis through the whole process. I can't thank David and his staff enough and strongly recommend them to anyone.

    I am not very good at words. I was involved in a horrible accident. David and his team (Thank You Asia & Rick) are wonderful, talented and compassionate. If it were not for their help, I don’t believe the outcome would be as good as it is. I am glad my case is settled, Altman & Altman are my go to team from now on. Thank you so very much.
