Am I Eligible to File a Case?
Your eligibility will depend on the particulars of your situation. Our lawyers will need to learn what happened and how the accident caused you harm. This also includes figuring out who could be held accountable.
Property owners and homeowners have a legal duty to ensure that their pool area is safe and free from hazards. Under state law, there are certain safety protocols that an owner of a pool must follow, such as:
- A pool must be protected by an enclosure (barrier, fence or wall) that surrounds the pool area
- A pool above or below the ground must close the entire pool area and be no less than five feet high
- A pool’s gate needs to be self-closing and self-latching with a latch that is no less than 54 inches above the ground
Pool owners are also obligated to educate younger children about how to stay safe around the pool area and when swimming in the pool. This includes providing proper supervision at all times to avoid an injury as well as proper life-saving equipment on hand should it be needed to treat an injury or near-drowning incident.
If you have a valid case, our licensed Avondale pool drowning lawyers are prepared to conduct a detailed investigation to gather supportive evidence in an effort to establish liability and help you obtain a recovery.

What is the Value of My Case?
The potential value of any case is just as unique as the victim. We would need to go over your medical records to get an accurate account of the extent and type of injuries and damages you have endured, medical bills you have acquired, and will continue to acquire, for treatments and your ability to return to work, if at all.
Generally, you may be able to pursue the following forms of compensation:
- Past, current and future medical expenses
- Loss of income or employment benefits
- Loss of future earning capacity
- Temporary or permanent disability
- Physical pain and mental suffering
- Emotional trauma
- In-home care services

How Long Do I Have to File?
In most instances, cases involving pool-related accidents must typically be filed within two years from the date the accident happened. This two-year rule applies to many personal injury cases. Not filing before this deadline will likely result in a court dismissal. This would ruin any chance you have at seeking compensation.
It is important to note that on a case-by-case basis, you may be asked to file before or even after the two- year deadline. Victims who are minors have until they reach their 20th birthday to file. Do not wait too long as you may risk losing any opportunity to recover damages.
Why Pool Accidents and Drownings Happen
May pool-related accidents and drownings cause serious injuries or death. These accidents commonly happen because of the following reasons:
- Building code violations
- Inadequate depth markers
- Inadequate supervision
- Lack of pool area enclosure (gate or fence)
- Lack of warning signs posted
- Overcrowding the pool
- Pool drain accidents
- Poor maintenance of the pool and surrounding areas
- Slip and fall hazards around the pool area
- Water that is contaminated
