Get Help After a Child's Swimming Pool Accident
While a pool can be a source of fun and enjoyment, a swimming pool can also prove dangerous if not properly maintained, especially for younger children. An alarming amount of children each year are injured or lose their life in a drowning or submersion accident, with a large number of these serious pool accidents occurring in residential settings in addition to country clubs, schools, and fitness centers.
About one in five drowning related fatality victims are children 14 and younger.
When the child you love is injured, it can unquestionably be one of the most traumatic and devastating experiences for any family, and a parent or caregiver may not know what to do next. In the event the negligence of another party led to your child's accident, the San Diego swimming pool accident lawyers at the Jurewitz Law Group can help you understand your legal rights and options in your situation and will fight to get your child the compensation he or she needs to recuperate.
The Road to Your Child's Recovery
A swimming pool accident may be caused by a number of things, such as lack of supervision, inadequate fencing around the swimming area, or failure to cover a pool or hot tub, and the accident can frequently be traced to another's negligence. Though each accident and its causes are unique, the consequences of a swimming pool or drowning incident are likely to be catastrophic, and innumerable injuries to your child can occur as a result. Broken bones, lacerations, concussions, or a traumatic brain injury are possible injuries that will make your child's recovery after a pool accident lengthy and unfortunately painful.
The emotional impact of this type of accident can also be quite difficult for a child to recover from, which is an additional obstacle your little loved one may face as they recover. Ensuring the well-being of your child is certainly your first priority, so obtaining compensation from the party responsible for the accident can help ensure they get the best medical care to heal to the best of their abilities and get back to the things they love.
