SWIMMING POOL DROWNING ACCIDENTS

Stockton Accident Attorney Explains Swimming Pool & Drowning Accidents

According to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, nearly 500 children under 5 years old drown in swimming pools each year. An additional 2,000 children are treated in emergency rooms each year for injuries associated with near-drownings. After automobile accidents, swimming accidents are the most common cause of death for this demographic in the US as a whole. In the state of California, swimming pool drownings are the number one cause of death for all children up to 15 years of age. This is likely due to the long coastline and generally good weather year round in a large portion of the state. Of all drowning victims who are of preschool age, 70% are with at least one parent at the time of drowning and 75% are out of sight for five minutes or less. If a loved one has drowned or sustained injuries while swimming, consider speaking to a Stockton accident attorney to learn what your legal options are.

Non-Drowning Accidents

Though most people only think of drowning when they think of swimming pool accidents, there are many more cases when an individual comes close to drowning but does not. These accidents can have devastating effects for the victim. Legal actions can and should be taken. Call an experienced Stockton accident attorney for help. (more…)

INJURED ON UNSAFE PREMISES AT AN APARTMENT

Stockton Accident Attorney Explains Premises Liability Law

Have you incurred an injury or personal damage due to negligent maintenance of a physical space such as an apartment complex? You may have a case under Premises Liability law. Speak with a Stockton accident attorney if you’ve been injured.

The owner or possessor of a property is required to maintain the premises such that an individual will not experience harm or damage during its use. This responsibility is even greater when considering children as they do not have the capacity to assess risk and act with appropriate caution.

In order to have a strong case against a defendant, the plaintiff must establish the following:

  1. The defendant was in control of the property. (Liability)
  2. The defendant did not adequately maintain the property to prevent injury. (Negligence)
  3. The plaintiff was harmed.
  4. The defendant’s negligence was a significant factor in the plaintiff’s injury.
