Swimming pool accidents are a tragedy that unfortunately affects many New Yorkers every year. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that at least three hundred children under the age of five accidentally drown in swimming pools annually. Thousands of other children who do survive a near-drowning experience suffer permanent brain damage and need long-term care. 

These victims and their families suffer immeasurable loss as they struggle to rebuild their lives. It is estimated that the cost of long-term care for a near-drowning victim can easily reach hundreds of thousands of dollars annually.

Winning an aquatic litigation claim in court will not relieve the suffering or make the experience any less tragic to deal with, but it may ease some of the financial burdens and help keep another family from suffering the same fate. The team at the Law Offices of Michael S. Lamonsoff, PLLC, understand what a sensitive time this can be for a family.

Dealing with this type of senseless tragedy can be difficult enough without trying to navigate the legal system as well. Our highly trained attorneys have decades of experience handling aquatic litigation and swimming pool accident claims.

Who pays swimming pool accident claims?

Most often it is an insurance company that pays these types of claims. These can be complicated claims that involve large sums of money and most people just don’t have the funds to cover a judgment of this proportion. Depending on the circumstances of the case, the money may come from a homeowner’s insurance policy, a company’s liability insurance policy, or some type of employer’s insurance.

How long will it take to resolve my case?

Please keep in mind that each case is different and treated on an individual basis. The length of time necessary to resolve a case will depend on many factors, such as what type of case is filed and whether the case goes to trial.

Many times, a fair and reasonable settlement may be reached in the pre-trial stage, shortening the process considerably. However, an experienced attorney knows that is not always the best option. 

The length of time necessary to resolve a swimming pool accident case may range anywhere from a few months to a year or longer.
