Orlando summers are hot and it is inevitable that you hear stories of drowning accidents or other water related injuries on the evening or morning news. If the drowning or other water accident occurs on someone else’s property, whether it be in an unsafe swimming pool, lake, pond, or other water facility, it may be the responsibility of the owner to pay for damages as they failed to operate and maintain the premises in a reasonably safe manner and condition.
These cases can occur in almost any body of water – whether it is on the property of a hotel, theme park, other business establishment, apartment, or even private home. If the owner of the property has been negligent in regards to the safety of guests or customers, you may be entitled to damages for your injury. These damages can range from compensation for your medical bills and lost wages, to additional recovery damages for related expenses. If the injury you sustained during a pool or other related accident is severe, you might also be entitled to further compensation for pain and suffering, scarring, physical impairment, disfigurement, or diminished capacity for enjoying life.
If you were not personally involved in the accident, but rather a loved one drowned due to the negligence of others, you as the survivor or the estate may be entitled to recover damages for pain and suffering, loss of support and services, loss of companionship from the decedent, or for medical and funeral expenses that were incurred.
