Filing Lawsuits For Fatal Drownings

Attorney Brian Kent is an experienced swimming pool accident lawyer in New Jersey. He recently highlighted when those with loved ones that tragically drowned could sue. 

"Too often drownings occur due to the pool owner's negligence. A pool owner is required by law to create a safe environment for those utilizing the facility. This could be achieved by providing enough signage explaining pool depths and hazards. In addition, the facility must employ trained lifeguards that are skilled at recognizing swimmers in distress. Failure to provide adequate security for the protection of the pool guests could result in them being held accountable for any injuries or deaths that occur on their premises. A court might find the facility responsible if it was aware of potential concerns yet did nothing to address them."

"The surviving family of drowning victims can file wrongful death lawsuits in cases involving pool safety negligence. An experienced attorney will seek to show that the victim died as a result of the facility's negligence or malicious intent. By launching a civil lawsuit, the family may be able to recover compensation for any medical expenditures and possibly pain and suffering."
