Pennsylvania Swimming Pool Accident Lawyers

The firm represented an 11-year-old who incurred serious and permanent quadriplegic spinal cord injuries after diving into a 4-foot, above-ground pool from a homemade platform constructed adjacent to the pool that was a replica of the pool manufacturer’s platform offered as optional equipment and marketed as a “diving platform” for this 4-foot, above-ground pool. This case was tried to a jury verdict awarding the client with a seven-figure verdict.

An 8-year-old incurred serious and permanent quadriplegic spinal cord injuries while diving in a supervised, competitive swimming and diving class conducted by a municipality for pay in a municipal pool. As part of a pool renovation project, starting blocks were moved by contractors, with the municipality’s approval, from the pool’s deep end (8½ feet) to the shallow end (3½ feet). The firm resolved this swimming pool accident case prior to trial with a seven-figure settlement.
