Losing a child or loved one in a fatal swimming pool accident or seeing your loved one suffer a brain or spinal cord injury as the result of a pool accident is a devastating and traumatic experience.

Injuries and deaths caused by swimming pool accidents in Kansas or Missouri are often the result of pool owner negligence. Defective pool equipment or components may also cause dangerous accidents. In either case, if someone was careless or negligent, they should accept responsibility.

The lawyers and the insurance company investigators will be working hard to protect their interests. It is important that you have a team who can preserve the evidence and fight for your rights, as well.

In order to have a successful injury or wrongful death claim after a swimming pool accident, it must be proven that negligence was the cause. Common causes of injury or fatal swimming pool accidents that may point to negligence include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Defective drains or other pool components;
  • Negligent or improper use of fences or locks;
  • Improper supervision, or lack thereof;
  • Diving accidents;
  • Violations of swimming pool manufacturing or design requirements;
  • Insufficient or lack of warnings;
  • Defective pool design; and
  • Lack of proper safety equipment.

Depending on the circumstances of the accident, the pool owner, property manager, pool designer/manufacturer, or product manufacturer may be held responsible for the harm their negligence caused.
