Cases We Handle
Drownings in the United States occur at an alarming rate. Sadly, young children are often the victims. Thousands of families each year suffer incomprehensible grief, pain, and loss after their child dies in a pool accident. At Metts Legal, we understand that no amount of compensation can make up for the loss of a loved one. But our compassionate and aggressive attorneys are prepared to fight for the justice that you deserve.
Unfortunately, drowning isn’t the only danger present in and around swimming pools. While serving the Orange County area, Metts Legal has discovered numerous perils that await would-be swimmers in our community. We are ready to handle any of the accidents listed below:
- Slip and Fall Accidents: Surfaces around swimming pools can become dangerously wet and slippery. When negligent swimming pool owners and operators leave these areas unchecked, someone can slip and fall, causing harm that ranges from burses to spinal cord injuries.
- Diving Board Accidents: Studies have concluded that hospitals admit nearly 6,500 young adults and children each year because of diving board accidents. Some of these accidents were caused by unsafe ladders, inadequate maintenance, or defective products. If you or a loved one has suffered from a diving board accident, immediately contact a drowning and pool accident lawyer.
- Swimming Pool Drain Accidents: Few people are aware that defective or poorly maintained swimming pool drains can be deadly to children and adults. Many pool drains can create a powerful vacuum effect. When pool drains are not sufficiently covered, the force of the vacuum can hold down a person down long enough for them to drown.
- Near Drowning: Along with drowning, submersion injuries can cause long-term traumatic brain damage and result in severe disabilities. Our seasoned attorney can help you secure the resources to take care of your loved one.
You should not have to pay out of pocket for a swimming pool accident that could have been prevented. Let our team of compassionate attorneys help you get the compensation you need to move on with your life after a serious injury accident.
