What’s the problem?
Those whose job it is to supervise, protect, and help swimmers during moments of trouble must always focus on their tasks at hand and avoid any potential distractions. Unfortunately, it is far too common for these people to fail in their duties and allow accidents to happen to innocent people.
Regardless of whether the accident occurs in a private pool or a public beach, there always needs to be a responsible person on the lookout for potential accidents or dangers. If not, there could be legal repercussions against those who failed to act for the safety of the general public.
If careless or improper supervision led you or someone you know to suffer a water-related accident, you may have the right to pursue legal action. Do not hesitate to pursue your case, for the law limits the amount of time you have to claim damages. Contact a team of experienced and dedicated lawyers who will fight for you.
