SWIMMING POOL ACCIDENT INJURY IS PREVENTABLE – COMPENSATION LAWYERS
The Rochlin Law Firm represents people who have been injured in many types of accidents in Minnesota, including a swimming pool accident. We make sure our clients receive compensation to pay for medical bills, lost wages, and more. Our lawyers have represented people injured on a swimming pool slide. We have had cases where the slide was defective and our client was cut coming down, and where the water slide was not properly supervised and one person ran into the next.
There are of course tragic cases every year where a child is not watched and drowns in a swimming pool, and there was a case in Edina several years ago where a girl was injured because of a defective water filtration device that was not properly attended to a vent. There are also cases where one person jumps on another person in the pool causing injury. All of these swimming pool accidents could have been prevented and the injury avoided, and our accident injury lawyers take these cases throughout MN to make sure our clients are fairly compensated after a preventable accident. The Consumer Product Safety Commission puts out some great information about pool safety. Here are some of the tips we got off of their web site:
