Am I Eligible to Pursue Legal Compensation?
Determining whether you have a valid case and can pursue compensation for your losses is a difficult task. Our legal team must first establish who is to blame for the pool accident.
In most pool accident cases, there are premise liability laws to consider. The property owner or entity that possesses the property may be held responsible for injuries sustained on the premise. For example, if a drowning accident occurred at a public pool, the property owner may be held liable for not providing proper safety equipment or having a lifeguard on duty.
In Arizona, facilities with pools must abide by certain safety protocols, such as:
- The pool must have a self-latching and self-closing entrance and be located at least 54 inches above the ground.
- The pool must be enclosed by a wall, fence or barrier of at least five feet high and must not be accessible from the outside of the pool.
What is the Value of My Case?
Determining the value of your potential case involves many factors, such as the severity of your injuries and the damages you have experienced from the injury. By meeting with an experienced Lake Havasu City pool drowning attorney, you may get a better idea of what your case may be worth and how to proceed in obtaining compensation.
Our legal team may be able to help you pursue both economic and non-economic damages:
- Economic damages – These are the financial losses you have experienced because of the pool drowning accident. This includes out-of-pocket expenses you have incurred or may incur in the future such as medical bills, lost wages and rehabilitation costs.
- Non-economic damages – These losses are more difficult to quantify because they do not have a dollar value. It may include pain and suffering, mental distress, loss of enjoyment of life and loss of companionship.

Is There a Time Limit to Take Legal Action?
Personal injury cases, including pool drowning accidents, are governed by Arizona’s statute of limitations. This means you generally have two years from the date of the accident to take legal action or run the risk of being barred from court and unable to recover damages.
Since every case is unique, there could be exceptions to this deadline. This is why we recommend reaching out to one of our Lake Havasu City pool drowning lawyers for advice.
What Can a Lawyer From Phillips Law Group Do to Help?
Pursuing a legal claim without legal representation can be challenging, especially when having to communicate and negotiate with the liable party’s insurance company.

Cases are only as strong as the evidence it has to support it.
