  • the population limits on state beaches and private pools were not adhered to 
  • there were no warning signs regarding strong or dangerous currents or conditions 
  • The lifeguards and other safety professionals at the pool were not adequate at the time of the incident. 

Proving liability can be difficult in drowning accidents. This is especially when the accident occurred at a private pool.

Frequently Asked Questions about Drowning Accidents in New York

How can drowning accidents in New York be prevented?

Drowning is a tragic accident and it is largely preventable. There are several precautions that property owners and managers can take to prevent drowning accidents. These include:
— Installing a fence of not less than 4 feet in height around the swimming pool. The fence should include a gate that is self-closing and self-latching.
— Placing a cover over pools or hot tubs when they are not in use. Access to pools or hot tubs should further be restricted by removing ladders and steps to the pool.
— Ensuring that inexperienced or young swimmers wear life jackets or floaters at all times while in the swimming pool
— Keeping the water clean and clear at all times
— Ensuring there are lifeguards or other trained professionals present where there are many people using the pool.
— Ensuring safety equipment is kept up to date and in good working order.
It is the responsibility of the property owner and manager to ensure safety at a swimming pool on their premises. This helps to reduce the risks of drowning. Failure to do so may result in drowning accidents which in turn can result in a premises liability lawsuit.

Who is eligible to file a drowning accident lawsuit?

If you or a loved one was involved in a drowning accident, you may be eligible to file for compensation. Drowning accident survivors may file for compensation if they survive the accident. The family of the victim can recover compensation if the victim died as a result of the drowning accident. The family may file a wrongful death claim and seek financial compensation for their damages as well as justice for negligence on behalf of their dead loved one.

If you want to know whether you are eligible to recover compensation for a drowning accident, contact the Harrison Law Group, P.C. Our attorneys will review your case and determine what damages you are eligible to recover. We will provide you with the support, guidance, and representation you need to recover compensation following the drowning accident.

What is Personal Injury?

If you’re injured as a result of a negligent third party, you may be entitled to compensation due to the damages you’ve experienced — either directly through the responsible party or their insurance company. An experienced New York personal injury lawyer will focus on tort law while seeking economic and non-economic damages for their clients — whether or not the target is a multi-million dollar award.

Personal injuries are classified as injuries to the body, mind, and emotions of an individual. When you suffer an injury because of another party, you experience turmoil, and your quality of life will change. Some victims experience loss of enjoyment of life, and even depression.

It’s important to speak with mindful attorneys who have the wisdom to handle your case effectively. Personal injury suits are filed against individuals or entities that cause harm due to recklessness, negligence, misconduct, or liability.

What Sets Us Apart?

Our attorneys and staff are competent, compassionate, and committed to seeking the maximum fair and appropriate compensation for all of our clients.

Our firm will make sure that you are properly advised of all of your options while giving you the proper legal advice to make the right decision for yourself and your family.

Types of Personal Injury

Personal injuries can refer to injuries sustained due to dental malpractice, product liability, or assault claims, but they more commonly involve the following types of injuries:

Car Accidents

When your vehicle collides with another vehicle, a pedestrian, an animal, debris, or another stationary obstruction such as a tree, pole, or building, you may face significant injuries and expenses that often include medical treatment and vehicle repairs. Following a car accident that was no fault of your own, it is important to immediately begin working with a New York personal injury lawyer to seek fair and appropriate compensation.

Truck Accidents

Motor vehicle accidents involving a truck or tractor-trailer and caused by the recklessness of others will present additional complex factors that are not present in a regular car accident case. You can be certain that there will be attorneys representing the truck driver, which is why you should partner with a New York personal injury lawyer at our law office immediately.

Motorcycle Accidents

When your motorcycle is involved in a motor vehicle accident at no fault of your own, you will need help in your fight to be fairly compensated in your case. As a client of our law firm, you can be confident that we are bringing the fight to the insurance company.

Premises Liability

An injury from an accident caused by unsafe conditions on someone else’s property often involves a fall on a slippery or uneven surface. Other types of negligence or dangerous circumstances may also lead to an injury or death. In some cases, your accident could amount to a multi-million dollar settlement. Our law office of NY accident attorneys will be happy to guide you through this process as our client.

Dog Bite

Dog owners are generally determined to be liable if their dog hurts you or anyone else. New York personal injury law in this situation provides a means to seek compensation for your medical expenses, your pain and suffering, & much more.

Slip and Fall

A property owner could be liable for damages if you slip, trip, and fall on their property due to their negligence. Working with a qualified New York personal injury lawyer in this situation is important because the Queens, Nassau County, Suffolk County, or Long Island property owner that you file a claim against will certainly be represented by law firms who are trying to dismiss or settle your case for as little as possible.

Construction Accidents

An injury sustained due to working on a construction site can be life-changing or deadly. In many cases, such an injury will prevent your ability to continue working for some duration of time. Workers’ compensation is available for these types of accidents. Depending on the details of your case, you may also be able to file a lawsuit.

Wrongful Death

Death caused by negligence or intentional actions of another party is known as wrongful death. The NY accident attorneys at our law office are experienced in these cases and are ready to help you fight for the money you need.

Medical Malpractice

When you work with a licensed medical professional, you have every right to expect that they will take prudent and cautious steps to help you work towards a successful recovery. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. The New York personal injury attorneys at our law firm are ready to help you fight for fair compensation.
