- Unsupervised children in the swimming pool (no adult or lifeguard)
- Unsecured swimming pool (no locks on gates to pool)

- Aggressive behavior by other children
- Swimming pool defects

What We Can Do
You will likely face several obstacles after your child's swimming pool accident. One involves the property owner often not admitting wrongdoing. The other issue many people face is they often personally know the owner of the pool - for example, a friend or neighbor.
But even if they do admit wrongdoing, perhaps the biggest obstacle you will face involves the insurance company that represents the owner of the swimming pool. In many cases, many insurance companies do everything they can to pay families as little as possible or nothing at all.
Our law firm knows how to take on insurance companies and win. That's because that's exactly what attorney Carlton has been doing in Southern California for more than 40 years. He also understands the sensitive nature of swimming pool accidents and other premises accidents involving children. And as your attorney, he will personally handle your case in an aggressive yet respectful manner.
