A TEXAS LAW FIRM with a NATIONAL REPUTATION for RELENTLESSLY PURSUING JUSTICE.
Our aquatic litigation attorneys have extensive knowledge in swimming pool, hot tub and whirlpool accidents occurring throughout the United States.
Water accidents are especially tragic because they often involve children and are frequently fatal. Drowning is one of the leading causes of death in children under the age of 14. No family should suffer such a terrible loss, but if the unthinkable has happened to you, we want to help. Our team of experienced aquatic litigation lawyers can help ensure that your rights are honored. A swimming pool accident lawsuit can also force changes at the accident site so that others do not become victims as well.
Many hotel and resort owners believe that posting a warning sign at the pool releases them from liability, but they are mistaken. If they fail to comply with state and federal laws regulating commercial pools and this results in injury or death, they can be held responsible. The hotel/resort’s own security cameras may have captured the incident and it is crucial that the record be preserved — our team will quickly seek a temporary restraining order to prevent the video from being destroyed.
Water park drownings can happen in the presence of dozens or even hundreds of park-goers, lifeguards and staff. Sadly, most of these terrible accidents could be prevented with adequate park staff and proper training of lifeguards.
Because water park drowning cases can be complex, it is important that you hire a legal team familiar with aquatic litigation. Few law firms have as much experience as Hilliard Law with these difficult cases.
When an apartment complex owner allows the pool to become murky or does not maintain a secure pool fence with working safety latches, a drowning accident can occur. The owners of apartment complex, townhouse and condominium pools must ensure that the pools meet state and federal safety codes. Their security companies may also be held liable for some safety violations.
The new Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act also requires that all public pools have drain covers or other anti-entrapment or suction-limiting devices/systems to prevent injury or drowning.
