California Pool Accident Lawyer

Caring Advocacy for Victims and Families

At The Dunnion Law Firm, we have 175+ years' combined experience to use on your behalf. As we operate on a contingency fee basis, you don't pay a dime unless we win your case.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), swimming is the third most popular recreational activity in the U.S., and the most popular recreation for American children. In California, this couldn't be truer, as swimming pools are not only extremely prevalent, but the warm climate allows our children and families much more access to swimming pools year round.

Unfortunately, this leads to some pretty grim statistics from the CDC:

  • Drowning is the second leading cause of all unintentional injury deaths in children aged 1-14
  • Drowning is the seventh leading cause of unintentional injury death for all ages
  • An astounding 69% of drowning deaths for children 4 and younger occurred in swimming pools

Despite these numbers and the media headlines we see each year, pool owners continue to avoid investing in gates, swimming pool covers, and other proven safety measures that could really save lives. Even serious slip and fall injuries could be avoided were it not for the negligence of pool owners.

If you have experienced a near-drowning, or you have lost a loved one in a drowning accident due to someone else's negligence, no compensation can make things right. But our California personal injury lawyers can hold the owner responsible while seeking to recover the compensation that can help you face medical bills and other financial losses.

Representation for Pool & Drowning Accidents

Many people assume that they are only responsible for watching their own children or children they've invited to their home to go swimming. This is not the case in California. If someone drowns in a pool when the owner is away, even if the person was never invited, the pool owner could still be liable in certain conditions. If someone failed to take simple safety measures, and you or a loved one suffered for it, you could have legal recourse through a premises liability claim.

Our attorneys are prepared to deliver the service you deserve. Not only will we treat your case with compassion and dignity, but we will keep you informed on where we stand throughout the entire legal process. It's important, however, that you act quickly on these cases. The longer you wait, the harder it becomes to gather evidence and secure witnesses who could benefit you. Don't delay.
