Swimming Pool Accidents in Florida
Slip and fall accidents are the most common type around swimming pools. Unfortunately, these can cause severe bodily injury and death. While many victims blame their clumsiness and don’t report swimming pool accidents, you have the legal right to file a claim against the property owner if their negligence resulted in your fault.
Don’t assume that your injuries are because of your fault. Speak with a qualified premises liability attorney to determine whether you have a valid claim. The attorneys at Carlson Meissner & Hayslett have helped several victims of swimming pool accidents obtain millions of dollars in compensation.
