Swimming Pool Accidents

When you are playing and having fun in the pool, you don't expect your life to change. Regrettably, Florida is the No. 1 state for child drowning accidents. If you or your family member has been hurt while on vacation or visiting a public or private pool, we urge you to contact Dana J. Watts, a Bradenton and Sarasota attorney for swimming pool accidents.

Help From An Experienced Trial Attorney Who Knows How To Defend You

We realize how serious pool accidents are and how much they affect our clients' lives, especially those that result in permanent head and brain injuries and fatal injuries. At our Sarasota law firm, founder and managing attorney Dana J. Watts has skillfully represented injured Florida residents throughout the state suffering from swimming pool accidents and vacation resort injuries resulting from:

  • Negligent supervision
  • Faulty pool area surfaces
  • Improperly installed drains
  • Poor lighting
  • No lifeguards/negligent lifeguards
  • Lack of "Swim at Your Own Risk" signs

While there have been laws put in place to protect people from getting hurt around or in pools — such as mandatory baby fences to stop young children from falling into pools — accidents unfortunately still happen. When you consult with us, our AV-rated* lawyer will work closely with you to learn if your accident was truly an accident or caused completely or partially by someone else. We are committed to exploring all options of recovery in your case.

With more than 30 years of successful trial experience, our Bradenton and Sarasota swimming pool accident attorney knows how to effectively handle your case in or out of court. Our main priority is helping our clients obtain the compensation they need to make the fullest recovery possible.

Did your loved one suffer a fatal pool accident? We can help you find peace and justice by pursuing a wrongful death claim. We urge you to contact Dana J. Watts to learn more.
