Children are likely to fall and injure themselves while playing at a daycare center, park, playground or school.

Swimming Pool or Drowning Accidents

Drowning is one of the leading causes of injuries and death among children in New York State. Data from the New York State Department of Health shows that swimming pool related injuries are responsible for the deaths of at least 28 people, aged 19 or younger, every year. Approximately one third of these individuals will be children aged four years or younger.

Drowning injuries and deaths generally happen because of:

  1. Lifeguard Negligence;
  2. Lack of adult supervision;
  3. Lack of or faulty pool gates and gate locks;
  4. Slippery or damaged pool decks; and
  5. Defective equipment (cleaning pumps, pool drains, pool filters, diving boards, ladders, etc.).

A property owner with a pool has a duty to take precautions to prevent harm to children on their property. If a property owner fails to ensure a child’s safety around their swimming pool or if a lifeguard was negligent in their duty to ensure the safety of the swimmers in the water, and your child drowned as a result, you may have a right to monetary compensation for your loss.
