What Are My Damages in My Conyers Swimming Pool Accident Case?
In your pool accident and personal injury case, your damages are the tangible and intangible losses you’ve suffered and incurred due to the accident. You might already have a list of these damages, but a lawyer from our firm can help you add to that list so you can claim all of your damages. Your list may include:
- Physical damages, such as your physical pain and any physical impairment you’re suffering
- Mental and emotional damages, such as mental anguish
- Medical expenses, including the cost of any physical therapy you may need
- Lost income, including any income you lose due to a lower earning capacity
- Wrongful death damages, if someone you love lost their life in the accident
Your lawyer can also attribute monetary values to your intangible damages so you can claim fair amounts. This can help persuade an insurance company that your damages are legitimate, that they were evaluated professionally and fairly, and that the insurer should compensate you for the damages.

Who Is Liable for My Damages in My Case?
Identifying your damages may be easier than identifying the party liable for them. In swimming pool accident cases, a number of different parties can be liable, such as a pool manager or a lifeguard. Multiple parties can even share liability.
A Conyers swimming pool accident attorney from our firm can identify the liable party or parties in your case by identifying negligence in your case. The negligent action or inaction could be:
- The pool manager not training their lifeguards well enough
- The manager not hiring enough lifeguards
- The manager not buying enough safety or life-saving equipment
- The manager ignoring prior complaints or prior incidents
- A lifeguard not supervising a pool properly
- A lifeguard not providing a life-saving procedure
- A pool attendant not tightening a drain cap enough
- A pool attendant not cleaning up a water hazard
- A pool gate guard letting too many people into the pool

How Does a Conyers Swimming Pool Accident Lawyer Prove Liability?
Once your lawyer has identified the party that’s likely liable in your case, your lawyer will have to establish that they were, in fact, negligent. This requires showing evidence, such as:
- A witness’s statement about the incident
- Previous incident reports
- Lifeguard activity reports
- Lifeguard training reports
- Pool maintenance reports
- Surveillance camera footage
- Photos of the facility
To establish negligence and liability with the insurer or a judge, your lawyer must also show the four elements of negligence in your case against the other party. These elements are:
- Duty of care (the party’s responsibility to keep you from harm)
- Breach of duty (the party’s irresponsible action or inaction)
- Causation (how the irresponsibility led to the incident)
- Damages (the claimable, compensable losses you have)

How Your Lawyer Will Resolve Your Case
You and your lawyer may choose to file a claim or a lawsuit against the other party in your case. Regardless, you may want your lawyer to try to negotiate a fair settlement with the insurance company, which may be quicker and simpler than litigating your case (taking it to court) right away.
During negotiations, your lawyer will represent you to the insurer, hold the insurer to account for your damages, and try to resolve your case in good faith. If the insurer doesn’t act in good faith, your lawyer can threaten to sue both the other party and the insurer, and if necessary, your lawyer will follow through on the threat. Your lawyer will do everything they have to in order to recover your damages.
The Deadline for a Lawsuit
Your lawyer can keep your case progressing quickly in order to meet the deadline for a lawsuit at any point. In Georgia, the filing deadline for a premises liability/personal injury lawsuit is within two years of the date of an incident, per O.C.G.A. § 9-3-33.
