swimming pool accident attorneysAccording to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):

At Villani & DeLuca, P.C., we represent victims of swimming pool accidents as well as the families of individuals who have drowned in a swimming pool.

Like other property owners, an owner of a swimming pool has a duty to ensure it is reasonably safe.  But, some swimming pool owners fail to take reasonable precautions to protect those who use their pools.  If you or a loved one has been involved in a serious or tragic swimming pool accident in New Jersey, you should contact our firm to schedule a free initial consultation with our NJ Swimming Pool Accident Lawyers about your case.

Types of Swimming Pool Accidents

Many things can go wrong when people are around swimming pools.  Children are especially vulnerable to injuries and accidents due to immature judgment and the inability to swim well.  New Jersey law holds swimming pool owners responsible to compensate accident victims for negligence such as:

  • Negligently failing to install fencing around pool
  • Failing to secure gate to swimming pool
  • Failing to warn swimmers of unusually shallow water
  • Failing to warn or clean up slippery and dangerous decking
  • Diving board injuries
  • Improperly maintaining electrical outlets that can cause electrocution
  • Inadequately supervising individuals using property
  • Other serious injuries

Depending on the circumstances, we seek to maximize our clients’ compensation by attributing additional responsibility to others such as:

  • Manufacturers
  • Designers
  • Installers
  • Retailers
