While a public pool can be a great source of fun and exercise for children, it can also be dangerous. Whether it's a lack of supervision or poor maintenance, when someone else's negligence is the cause of your child being injured or tragically killed in a drowning, you may be able to file a claim.

The circumstances surrounding the drowning and the negligent party will be factors in determining the type of claim you are able to file. A Philadelphia personal injury attorney should have experience with premises liability, along with child injury and wrongful death cases.

Negligence in a near-drowning or drowning accident at a public pool could be due to a lack of supervision. This could be a caretaker's failure to properly supervise or not having enough lifeguards on hand. 

Even in cases where a lifeguard is available, if they are inexperienced or lack training it could also result in a drowning accident. Or if there is a failure to implement emergency action plans, this could be another cause.

Equipment in a public pool that is faulty or defective could be another cause of negligence.
If there is a failure to provide a floating device that would safely pull a child in or if there aren't adequate barriers, these could also be causes for a drowning accident in New Jersey or Philadelphia.

A drowning at a New Jersey or Philadelphia public swimming pool can be devastating. Seeking legal counsel from a Philadelphia personal injury attorney should be your next step.
