Swimming Pool Drain Injury Lawyers

Pool Drain Accidents

You always expect your pool to be a relaxing and fun way to cool off and play during the summer months. Unfortunately, some swimming pools prove to be ticking time bombs that can cause serious injury to your children when they become trapped at the bottom due to drain suction.

A defective swimming pool drain can cause the entrapment of a child under the surface of the water if his or her hair gets sucked into the water intake. Other problems arise if the drain creates intense suction when the child’s body covers it to pull his or her body down against the pool floor. This type of pool accident typically results in drowning, injuries that require immediate hospitalization, or death.

Injuries that May Result from an Accident Involving a Pool or Hot Tub Drain

Accidents that are the result of faulty pool drains may have life-changing effects on the injured. The brain damage caused following an extended period without oxygen can leave the person in a coma or render him or her mentally retarded for the rest of his or her life.

Death is often the result if the victim is not found in time or the incident happens while he or she is in the pool alone. Pool safety can often be improved by improving the design of pool drains or replacing broken or outdated drain systems, and when these steps are not taken, the owner of the pool can be held liable by Illinois law.

What Causes Pool Drain Accidents

It is often the case that drain accidents can be prevented and are the result of missing drain covers or broken and aging drains. Newer pool pumps can sense when an object or person is covering the drain and shut off automatically. However, old pumps lack this feature, making them dangerous to pool occupants.

A qualified pool accident attorney will be able to review your case to determine whether or not the pool drain that caused you or your loved one’s accident was defective and tell you more about your legal options regarding the matter.

Client Reviews
Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case. In addition, Jonathan was understanding and patient pertaining to any of my questions or concerns. I was very happy with the end result and I highly recommend Jonathan Rosenfeld. Michonne Proulx
Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own. Ethan Armstrong
This lawyer really helped me get compensation for my motorcycle accident case. I know there is no way that I could have gotten anywhere near the amount that Mr. Rosenfeld was able to get to settle my case. Thank you. Daniel Kaim
Jonathan helped my family heal and get compensation after our child was suffered a life threatening injury at daycare. He was sympathetic and in constant contact with us letting us know all he knew every step of the way. We were so blessed to find Jonathan! Giulia
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa
