Negligent Lifeguards and Pool Workers

Lawsuit against Lifeguards and Pool Workers 

Lifeguards and pool workers who are negligent make swimming in a public pool more dangerous. If you or someone you know was injured in a pool accident and died because of negligent lifeguards or pool workers, you should contact a drowning attorney. 

Lifeguards are responsible for upholding pool standards at all times, regardless of any complaints or taunting from swimmers. They must be aware of all aspects of the swimming facility, including the water’s surface and bottom, pathways, and the diving board. They must maintain their training and certification, as well as be able to detect and respond to indicators of distress in both children and adults. Any act that deviates from these guidelines might result in catastrophe.

Pool workers must ensure that the pool water is clear to prevent a drowning accident. Pool employees must also maintain the pool surface, pool equipment, and rescue equipment, as well as ensure that enough emergency equipment is readily accessible. They must also utilize the chemicals in the pool correctly to avoid overtreatment of the pool. Pool workers must also ensure that the pool logs needed by state health standards are kept up to date at all times.

If you wish to submit a claim or lawsuit because a loved one was injured or died because of unintentional drowning, please call our drowning attorney. If a drowning victim survives, they frequently suffer from severe physical and mental difficulties, including lifelong brain damage caused by a lack of oxygen to the brain while underwater. It is vital to hold the pool operator accountable for hiring poorly qualified pool workers or neglecting to adequately educate personnel in lifesaving techniques. Based on the facts of the case, you may be entitled to financial compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, emotional trauma, funeral costs, and other damages. We will devote our whole attention to your case because we want to make a difference in swimming pool safety.

Negligence on the part of lifeguards is not always visible. Poor judgment is sometimes involved, such as coming down from the raised lifeguard chair for a little while, simply screening one section of the pool for signs of swimmer difficulty, rapidly turning away to chat to a friend, or disregarding a youngster running in the pool area. A person can drown in less than a minute, therefore even a few seconds of inattention on the part of a lifeguard can result in catastrophic damage or death.
