A Hands-On Approach To Pool Accidents

Swimming pools can provide fun for all ages. Unfortunately, a lack of supervision or defective equipment can cause children and others to drown or suffer other pool-related injuries in a matter of moments.

At Hillier & Hillier Personal Injury Lawyers, we represent the surviving family members of drowning victims as well as the parents of children who are injured in swimming pool accidents. We take a hands-on approach to these cases, focusing our energy and resources on obtaining favourable settlements and jury verdicts for our clients.

Holding Negligent Parties Accountable For Diving Injuries And Drownings

According to a 2009 report from the Lifesaving Society, 9 percent of all drowning deaths in Ontario occur in private pools, and the number of drowning deaths has increased for all age categories under age 50. A staggering 71 percent of all drowning deaths occur while victims are engaged in recreational activities.

In addition to drownings, other serious injuries can also happen in or around pools, including back injuries, spinal cord injuries, brain injuries and serious orthopaedic injuries.

We thoroughly investigate the issues surrounding these injuries and prepare every case for trial, seeking compensation for pool accidents that occur as a result of lack of supervision, improper safety procedures or defective equipment.
