Swimming Pool Injuries

If you’ve been injured in a public or private pool in New York, you may be entitled to recover compensation for your injuries. Watch this video by experienced New York personal injury attorney Mark Shaevitz to learn who may be responsible for your swimming pool injury.

Injuries that result in public pool areas—basically owned by a municipality or the City of New York—are owned by the city, and they are responsible to keep them in a safe manner.

Private pool owners, such as pools in someone’s backyard, are also responsible to keep their pool in a safe condition.

If you are injured due to condition in a pool or pool area that is negligent, then you are entitled to collect for and be compensated for your injuries.

Keep in mind, the statute of limitations for such incidents could be as little as 30 days from the date of the accident, or as much as three years, so it pays to speak with a qualified attorney immediately following a slip and fall incident.
