Drowning Attorneys

The main responsibility of owners and operators of swimming pools is to prevent drowning accidents when reasonably possible. By taking crucial safety precautions, maintaining the safety of the pool, and regularly posting lifeguards, pool owners may be able to sharply reduce the risk of drowning that their guests and patrons face. Unfortunately, when these actions aren’t taken, a victim is likely to develop long-term health problems if they aren’t rescued quickly. And sadly, when assistance is provided in a timely manner, drowning can cause a person to lose their life, leaving their family grieving.

At Hull & Zimmerman, P.C., we believe people who have lost a loved one in Denver or been seriously injured due to drowning should be able to fight for justice and compensation after such a devastating incident. Fortunately, many pool owners or managers can often be held liable for their role in allowing a drowning to occur, giving victims the recompense they need.

Safety Precautions that Can Prevent Drowning

Many drowning incidents are preventable. Thus, regardless of whether the pool is on private or public property, a property owner has a legal responsibility to provide the following safety precautions to do their utmost in preventing drowning:

  • Posting warning signs and secured fencing around a pool on private property to prevent children from entering the pool unsupervised
  • Posting lifeguards at a pool to rescue drowning patrons and guests
  • Providing stable ladders and other means to exit a pool in an emergency situation
  • Posting accurate depth indications throughout the pool to allow unprepared swimmers to avoid dangerously deep water
  • Storing adequate flotation devices for other swimmers or supervisors to use to help a drowning or struggling swimmer

These kinds of measures are often necessary to keep swimmers from drowning. If a property owner fails to maintain the safety of their pool, they may be held accountable for the repercussions their thoughtless mistakes have.


At Hull & Zimmerman, P.C., we are honored to help accident victims in their time of need, and take our responsibility as personal injury lawyers incredibly seriously. We know how important it is for victims to secure the full and fair compensation they need following a serious accident, and that is why we take a hands-on, personalized approach to every case we handle.
