How much is my swimming pool accident case worth?

This is a very common question we receive from our clients. But, in order to be able to completely address this question, we recommend that you come in for a consultation with our Los Angeles lawyers. We are not able to give a direct answer until we have sat down with you and reviewed the entire accident, along with the damages that you have suffered. There are several factors that could determine how much  you’re swimming pool accident cases worth, including:

  • Who the responsible parties are
  • Whether you are responsible for your accident as well
  • Where the accident occurred
  • Whether there were signs warning of the dangers
  • The severity of the injuries
  • Whether you received any medical treatments
  • If you took time off work

Defective Swimming Pool Equipment 

Sometimes, some accidents may not be caused by the property owner’s negligence, but instead because of a defective swimming pool part. There are several parts that could be defective in a swimming pool, including:

  • Diving boards
  • Pool drains or drain covers
  • Swimming pool slides
  • Pool cleaners

Defective objects can lead to serious and traumatic injuries. This then allows you to file a product liability claim. Product liability is somewhat different from a negligence claim since the product manufacturer is legally responsible under a strict liability claim. Strict liability essentially means that the product manufacturer is responsible regardless of their negligence. This means that if the product manufacturer took all the necessary steps to make sure that the product was manufactured safely, yet resulted in a defect, they could still be held responsible. But, in order to have a successful product liability lawsuit for a swimming pool part defect, you must show:

  • The swimming pool part had a defect. You must prove the exact defect. There are three different types of defects, including manufacturing defects, design defects, and a lack of warning defects. This takes a highly qualified product liability attorney to look into the circumstances of the accident and narrow down exactly what the defect was. We were hand in hand with our product liability experts and engineers.
  • The product manufacturer created this defective product and placed the product out in the stream of commerce.
  • The swimming pool parts defect led to an accident. For example, the swimming pool drain cover was loose, and a swimmer had a limb stuck in the drain.

These elements are complex, which is why we recommend that you speak to our experienced product liability lawyers if you suspect that you’re assuming the accident was caused by a defect rather than a negligent party.
