We’re hitting the hottest time of the year here in Phoenix. A cool pool can keep the kids busy for the better part of an afternoon. What comes to issue is that this is the time of the year when we get called far too often on swimming pool accidents and deaths. Our Phoenix personal injury lawyers at Tobler Law represent swimming pool accident victims and their families throughout Phoenix and the cities that surround it. We work toward helping those people receive the financial compensation that they deserve for their injuries and tragic losses. In turn, that helps our clients and their families put their lives back together.
Near drowning accidents can cause oxygen deprivation. That results in complicated medical issues that might not even be fully diagnosed for weeks, months or even years after a swimming pool accident. Those complications can result in one or more of the following disabilities:
- Memory deficit.
- Coordination issues.
- Speech difficulties.
- Emotional instability.
- Paraplegia or quadriplegia.
Common Causes of Phoenix Swimming Pool Accidents
Any number of causes might be involved in a swimming pool accident. Those causes can include the following:
- Inadequate barriers to the pool itself.
- Malfunctioning filters and drains.
- Poorly maintained and slippery decks.
- Poor water conditions.
- Unqualified or inattentive lifeguards.
- No lifeguard or adult presence at all.
Preserving the Evidence Properly
Contact us right away after any swimming pool accident. Medical and rehab costs are going to be enormous. You and your injured family member are going to need as much help as you can get. Evidence must be preserved, and the progress of the surviving victim must be carefully monitored and documented through his or her medical records and reports. Victims and their families don’t know how to procure or preserve evidence properly. In the unlikely event that they’re able to do so, there isn’t much of a chance that the evidence is going to be be admissible if there is a trial. Only a skilled and effective swimming pool accident lawyer knows how to do that.

We’re going to listen to you carefully and then, we’ll answer your questions and advise you of your full range of legal options. If we’re retained to represent you, no legal fees at all are even due unless we obtain a settlement or verdict for you.
