A Serious Problem in Florida
Year after year, Florida continues to be one of the worst states for unintentional drowning in children and it is the leading cause of death of young children in Florida. In 2000, the Florida Legislator passed Residential Swimming Pool Safety Act, which imposed safety restrictions in Florida pools, spas, and hot tubs built after October 1, 2000. Property owners, hotels, and apartment complexes with pools or beach access must exercise reasonable care to avoid risk of harm to individuals from drowning.
Drowning accidents can occur from:
- Defective safety equipment
- Lack of safety equipment
- Failure to warn and supervise dangerous conditions
- Lack of fencing
- Failure to maintain the property
Injuries resulting from a drowning or near-drowning accident can be catastrophic. If proper safety measures were not in place, or if the landowner failed to exercise reasonable care, they may be liable for your injuries.
