Memorial Day Weekend is coming up, which means people across the United States will be having barbecues, pool parties, and more. Unfortunately, the number of Memorial Day accidents and injuries that occur every year is startling. Many of those injuries stem from swimming pool-related accidents. That being said, if you are injured in someone else’s pool, there is a very good chance you will qualify for financial compensation. Please continue reading and reach out to our experienced Texas personal injury attorneys to learn more about pool accidents and how we can help you through every step of the claims process ahead.
What are the most common causes of swimming pool accidents?
Swimming pool accidents can be caused by a wide array of factors, though the most common is swimming pool owner negligence. Swimming pool owners should put out wet floor signs where necessary, ensure barriers/fences are installed to prevent people and toddlers from falling in, always supervise children, ensure nobody is swimming under the influence, and more. When they fail to do so, serious accidents can happen.
What should I do if I have been injured in a swimming pool accident?
If you have been injured in a swimming pool accident, you are most likely now seeking financial compensation to help you heal. Our firm can help you receive that compensation via a premises liability lawsuit. However, we will have to prove that the pool owner knew or should have reasonably known about the safety hazard present, failed to fix it, and that you were seriously injured as a result. Our firm can gather and present evidence on your behalf, such as security camera footage of the accident, witness statements, your medical bills, and more.
That being said, the wrongly injured must file premises liability lawsuits within Texas’s statute of limitations. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Texas is, generally, two years, giving the wrongly injured two years from the date of their accident to take legal action against the party responsible. Do not wait any longer than two years, for if you do, there is a very good chance you will no longer be allowed to sue. For any additional questions, give our experienced Tyler, Texas legal team a call.
