Personal Commitment From Personal Injury Attorneys

At McDougall LawFirm, LLC, we have been helping people like you who have experienced swimming pool accidents in South Carolina since 1996. Our Beaufort, Bluffton and Hilton Head personal injury lawyers focus on providing aggressive litigation marked by a dedication to client service when dealing with swimming pool accidents. We take the time to listen to our clients and to tailor our approach for each new case.

Some of the most common causes of swimming accidents include:

  • Poor pool area maintenance and safety precautions: To avoid drowning and other accidents, residential pools should be fenced in, and the area around a pool should be clean, well maintained and safe.
  • Dangerous pool equipment: Suction entrapment is a leading cause of swimming pool injuries. In many cases, this is a result of a dangerous and defective product.
  • Inadequate supervision: Almost any swimming pool accident could be avoided — or at least the consequences could be minimized — with adequate supervision. This holds true especially for injuries to children, of course, but it is true for all accidents. Simply being watchful could prevent extended time under water in a suction entrapment situation or could ensure that emergency personnel are on site more quickly to minimize the damage.
  • Swimming pool design: If a swimming pool is not constructed to standard, it increases the risk of serious injuries such as head or brain injuries, paraplegia or quadriplegia, or other serious injuries.

If you or someone you love has suffered serious injuries or wrongful death in a swimming pool accident, we will fight for the full and fair compensation you need to help you rebuild your life.
