Most Drowning Accidents Occur from Negligence: Let Our Nevada Pool Drowning Lawyer Hold Those At Fault Accountable
While some swimming pool drownings cannot be prevented, many fatal cases result from negligence-related factors, such as poor supervision, lack of maintenance, and attractive nuisances.
Our Nevada pool drowning lawyers can investigate the root cause of the accident to determine if it was due to intentional or reckless actions of the property owner or another party. Some common preventable drowning scenarios in swimming pools include the following:
- Poorly managed area or a tripping hazard around the pool, causing the victim to slip and fall
- Lack of or defective safety equipment, such as a ring buoy or shepherd’s hook
- Broken swimming pool ladder, stairs, pool cover, or fence
- Improper supervision by those responsible for watching and protecting the swimmers
- Lack of signs around the pool warning visitors of dangers
- Overcrowding the pool
- Lack of water clarity
We can help you take legal action and collect restitution for medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages caused by the drowning accident.

Our Nevada Pool Drowning Attorneys Can Review the Facts of Your Case to Determine the Liable Party
A public or private property owner, the swimming pool owner, or the operator tends to hold primary liability if someone drowns in their pool due to negligence. Pool owners must implement safety measures to prevent drowning. These may include:
- Installing a fence or another barrier around the pool so people, especially children, do not mistakenly fall into the pool
- Ensuring there’s always someone supervising the occupants in the pool
- Ensuring high-risk individuals, especially children, are not near areas where suction devices are present
- Keep safety devices and emergency kits handy and accessible at all times
- Make sure there’s someone present that knows CPR
- Prohibit those intoxicated from swimming
A Nevada pool drowning lawyer can assess the cause of the drowning accident and determine if the property owner, pool owner, or operator is liable for the death.
Other entities that can also hold fault for pool drowning incidents include:
- Lifeguard:If the drowning accident happened at a public pool while the lifeguard was on duty, you might be able to file a claim against the lifeguard since they are obligated to protect the swimmers from drowning or incurring injuries.
- Parts/Product Manufacturers: Manufacturers of defective pool filters, pool drains, ladders, pool safety gear, or barriers can be held liable if the malfunctioning of a specific part played a role in the drowning accident.
