Cincinnati Failure to Supervise Lawyers

Over 1,000 children die every year because of swimming accidents, which can occur in a matter of minutes and only a few inches of water is required. Swimming pool owners, including those in private residences and public pools such as those in hotels and parks, are responsible for ensuring that their pool does not present an unreasonable hazard to others. If a pool is not properly supervised and injury or death occurs, that pool’s owner may be liable.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a swimming pool, contact a Cincinnati swimming pool injury lawyer at Stepleton Dugan, LLC today at 513-321-7733, and we will fight to see that whoever is responsible for the injury is held accountable for their actions.

Pool Safety Tips

When a child or multiple children are swimming, it is important for all adults to undertake a number of simple safety steps in order to prevent a tragedy:

  • Make sure every adult knows and understands proper pool safety and first aid.
  • Do not let children swim in a pool or other body of water without proper adult supervision.
  • Have each adult be responsible for their own children so as to make sure no child is forgotten.
  • Do not swim or allow children to swim if you are under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
  • Make sure any pool you own is protected by a tall, lockable fence.

Contact Us

Pool owners have a responsibility to ensure that their pool is safe for all of its users, including children. Caretakers are, likewise, responsible for ensuring the safety of the children that they have been entrusted to take care of. When these responsibilities are not lived up to, a swimming pool can turn from a fun and safe source of entertainment into a nightmare.

If your child has been injured because of a caretaker or other adult’s failure to properly supervise their actions, contact a Cincinnati personal injury lawyer at Stepleton Dugan, LLC today at 513-321-7733. We will send a message that failing to live up to your responsibility as a caretaker is unacceptable, and fight to make sure that you are compensated to the full extent of the law.
