How Can We Help You?

Dallas has the perfect weather for dipping in a backyard or neighborhood swimming pool. Unfortunately, swimming pool accidents happen more often than you might imagine, and when they do occur, they can be catastrophic and heartbreaking experiences.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, drowning is the leading cause of death for children. And while children are at the highest risk of drowning, anyone can drown. The National Safety Council reports that, on average, approximately ten people die each day from drowning (excluding boating incidents) in the United States.

The negligence of a business or property owner often causes swimming pool accidents. An owner of a swimming pool must take reasonable steps to ensure the safety of anyone who has access to their property.

When a pool owner fails to take adequate measures to address safety risks, one of our experienced Dallas swimming pool accident attorneys can assist you in accessing liability insurance coverage to help cover expenses such as medical bills, funeral costs, loss of earnings, or earning capacity, pain and suffering and wrongful death.
