Swimming Pool Accident Attorney in Jacksonville


Swimming pool accident lawyers at Harrell & Harrell are aware of the appeal of swimming pools, as well as their potential dangers. Children are especially susceptible to the charm of pools, yet they are not able to understand the possibilities for dangerous, even fatal, accidents around them. Whether the pool is in a private backyard or is a public access pool, there are legal responsibilities for these very attractive but challenging nuisances.

In addition to children, there are many opportunities for adults to be involved in accidents and injuries caused by swimming pools as well. The experienced personal injury lawyers at Harrell & Harrell are aware of these dangerous attractions, of the broad areas of liability by pool owners, and of the immediate and future needs caused by pool and water accidents.

Pools need to be secured by fences and gate closures to keep unattended children out. But, that’s just the beginning. Pools also must be maintained in a safe and good condition as well. Owners are responsible for keeping their pools secured and related pool property, including drains, decks, diving boards, slides, covers, heaters and chemicals properly maintained. Certain signs and warnings must be clearly posted — including depth.

Drowning Accident Lawyers

A badly-maintained deck can cause a fall and serious injury. A faulty drain or drain cover can catch limbs or clothing. Improper placement of an appliance or outlet can cause electrocution. A pool may be an obvious place to have fun, but it is no place to be careless.

It is the pool owner’s responsibility to properly warn and protect any person who has access to the pool. This applies whether the pool is in a private backyard or a public access pool. Other swimming pool injuries and cases include:

  • Diving board injury
  • Water slide accident
  • Pool deck injury
  • Drowning or near drowning
  • Swimming pool chemical burns / contamination
  • Negligent pool staff

The paralegal Beth Osburn was absolutely incredible. Her assistance, dedication, responsiveness, encouragement, and overall compassion helped me through an incredibly difficult time. I never believed I would need to consult an attorney and was somewhat negatively biased in my expectation of how that experience might be. However, based on my experience with Harrell and Harrell, I have recommended and will continue to recommend them to anyone put in the difficult situation of needing legal counsel/assistance.
