What Should You do if Your Child Gets Hurt at a Public Pool?

What Should You do if Your Child Gets Hurt at a Public PoolIf your child was hurt at a public pool, it may be a good idea to look for the best personal injury attorneys Baltimore, MD has available to help parents of injured children.

If your child was hurt while at a public pool, you may be trying to determine who should pay for the necessary medical treatment. If they sustained a serious injury, the resulting medical bills could be quite high. As our personal injury attorneys from Cohen & Cohen might share with you, determining liability greatly depends on the circumstances and location of the accident.

Below are some general guidelines but they are not a substitute for speaking with personal injury attorneys. We offer free consultations to those whose minor child was hurt in an accident caused by the negligence of another party. Call us today to request a case review.

Not every attorney is the best attorney for every case. This is one of the many reasons it is best to discuss your child’s situation with personal injury attorneys in Baltimore or near where your child was injured in MD before you decide who to retain.

Common Pool Accidents

Unfortunately, public pool accidents are quite common. This is because pool accidents can take many forms. Some of the most common include:

  • Slip and fall accidents.
  • Drownings and near drownings.
  • Lacerations and bruising from coming into contact with the pool’s surfaces, walkways, ladders, slides, and from collisions with other swimmers.
  • Falling objects in the changing room.

If your child was injured in a public pool in Baltimore, it may be in your best interest to discuss your child’s situation with personal injury attorneys who are licensed to practice throughout MD.

Who is liable for a public pool accident?

Determining liability depends on many things. Sometimes, accidents are simply accidents and nobody is liable. However, if there is a direct connection between a company, government agency, or an individual’s actions and the victim’s injury, the negligent party or parties may be liable. With the assistance of personal injury attorneys, you may be eligible for filing a claim for compensation. For example, at a pool, water may be unexpected on stairs that are nowhere near the immediate perimeter of the pool. If stairs are unexpectedly slippery and the pool owner or manager was aware but did nothing to remedy that hazard, and did not post warning signs, they might be held liable for resulting injuries.

Talking to Baltimore, MD personal injury attorneys may help you to make more informed decisions about how best to proceed to protect your child’s right to compensation for expenses that are the result of their unfortunate accident.

How did the pool accident occur?

  • If it was a hazardous condition that was ongoing and known by those responsible for maintaining safety, the pool facility’s management might be liable for your child’s injury costs.
  • If your child was running near a pool despite “No Running” signs and the warnings from the lifeguard, and slipped and fell the pool facility and owners might not be held liable for your child’s injury costs.
  • If your child was using the diving board and the board broke in the process because it was not properly maintained, the pool facility’s management might be liable for your child’s injury costs.
  • If another pool visitor ran into your child or injured them in some other way, they or their parents (if they are a minor) might be liable for your child’s injury costs.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
