Frequently Asked Questions about Drowning Accidents in New York

How can drowning accidents in New York be prevented?

Drowning is a tragic accident and it is largely preventable. There are several precautions that property owners and managers can take to prevent drowning accidents. These include:
— Installing a fence of not less than 4 feet in height around the swimming pool. The fence should include a gate that is self-closing and self-latching.
— Placing a cover over pools or hot tubs when they are not in use. Access to pools or hot tubs should further be restricted by removing ladders and steps to the pool.
— Ensuring that inexperienced or young swimmers wear life jackets or floaters at all times while in the swimming pool
— Keeping the water clean and clear at all times
— Ensuring there are lifeguards or other trained professionals present where there are many people using the pool.
— Ensuring safety equipment is kept up to date and in good working order.
It is the responsibility of the property owner and manager to ensure safety at a swimming pool on their premises. This helps to reduce the risks of drowning. Failure to do so may result in drowning accidents which in turn can result in a premises liability lawsuit.

Who is eligible to file a drowning accident lawsuit?

If you or a loved one was involved in a drowning accident, you may be eligible to file for compensation. Drowning accident survivors may file for compensation if they survive the accident. The family of the victim can recover compensation if the victim died as a result of the drowning accident. The family may file a wrongful death claim and seek financial compensation for their damages as well as justice for negligence on behalf of their dead loved one.
