Legal Options for Families of Pool Drowning Victims

Pool drownings can be devastating for victims and their families. Kevin Biniazan is a victim rights attorney and a frequent contributor to The Legal Herald. He has helped multiple families get justice after a pool drowning. He offered us the following comments on a hotel pool drowning lawsuit.

“Unfortunately, pool drownings are a much more common occurrence than they should be, especially for small children. However, it is important for families to know that they may be able to take legal action after a drowning. Often drownings are preventable if the owner of the pool such as a hotel or spa had taken proper safety precautions to prevent it.”

Kevin continued by explaining, “Pool owners have a responsibility to maintain a safe environment for those using the pool. This can be accomplished through a number of measures including having a trained lifeguard on duty, monitoring the pool area for at-risk individuals, and having an emergency action plan for if a drowning does occur. Taking these measures can greatly reduce the risk of a drowning occurring and if a pool-owner did not make any effort to maintain the safety of the pool they may be found negligent and be liable to a civil lawsuit.”
