How Your Stockbridge Swimming Pool Accident Lawyer Can Resolve Your Case
Once your lawyer has a list of your damages, evidence of negligence, and a plan for establishing negligence, your lawyer will:
- Prepare your insurance claim or lawsuit
- Present it to the other party’s insurer
- Begin negotiating for a settlement or file a lawsuit
Your lawyer will negotiate in good faith and ask the insurer to compensate you fairly. However, the insurer may not be cooperative.
For instance, the insurer might claim the party they represent isn’t accountable for the accident. However, your lawyer may know that a lack of supervision caused your child’s swimming pool accident. Supervision is the lifeguard’s responsibility, and swimming pool administrators are accountable for the actions and inaction of their lifeguards. So, the pool administrator is accountable when a lifeguard fails in their responsibility.
If the insurer in your case claims the pool administrator isn’t accountable, your lawyer won’t accept that. Alternatively, if the insurer diminishes any of your damages, your lawyer won’t accept that, either. Your lawyer can threaten to sue or simply sue the other party. Your lawyer won’t hesitate to sue even if the other party is a governmental public pool administrator.

Accountability in Your Swimming Pool Accident Case
You or your child could not have predicted an accident at a swimming pool. The accountable party could be the administrator of the pool facility, even if one of their lifeguards failed in their duties. However, it may be challenging to identify the party who is liable for your damages.
You or a Stockbridge swimming pool accident attorney from our firm will have to establish accountability by showing how the party was negligent. They may have been negligent by:
- Leaving water on a surface that should have been dry
- Leaving a drain cap loose
- Leaving some kind of hazard, like a harmful chemical, in the water
- Failing to mark a depth zone properly
- Failing to train lifeguards adequately
- Failing to hire enough lifeguards
- Failing to have adequate life-saving equipment
- Allowing a pool to become overcrowded
- Ignoring complaints about issues with the pool
Something else you or a lawyer from our firm will have to do is show evidence of negligence. One of our lawyers could easily gather such evidence as:
- Pool maintenance reports
- Lifeguard training reports
- Documents showing the lifeguard’s duties
- Footage from a facility security camera
- Photos of the facility
- Your medical bills
- Reports of prior issues with the pool or prior incidents
- Invaluable corroborating evidence, such as a statement from an expert witness
Finally, you or one of our lawyers must establish negligence by showing the four elements of negligence. The lawyer can more easily show:
- Duty of care
- Breach of duty
