Most swimming pool accidents involve children and are the second leading cause of death of children, after motor vehicle accidents. However, numerous other less fatal, yet thoroughly incapacitating hazards can occur in and around the pool, such as slips and falls, diving related accidents, and other injuries caused by faulty pool equipment. Victims of these types of swimming pool accidents have the right to receive monetary compensation for their medical expenses, ongoing care, lost income, rehabilitation, damages, diminished earning capacity, and for any other costs and losses.
The benefit of having insurance and paying premiums is the financial security insurance provides in the event of dire circumstances. Unfortunately, insurance companies frequently make efforts to avoid following through on their promises. Some companies might even try to take advantage of their customers by offering low-ball settlements, denying a claim, or disregarding their clients completely. That is why it is so important to obtain a personal injury lawyer who is aware of some of these pitfalls, to be able to look after your best interests, and if necessary fight for your case in court.
