Did You Suffer Serious Injuries in a Swimming Accident in New Jersey?

Contact the NJ swimming accident lawyers of Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow, LLP today

Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow, LLP handles complex injury claims arising from swimming accidents throughout New Jersey. Shareholders Barry Eichen, William Crutchlow and Daryl Zaslow are all Certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as Civil Trial Attorneys. The firm handles swimming accident claims stemming from:

  • Failure in supervision. The majority of child drownings happen due to inadequate supervision, whether from a parent, caregiver, or lifeguard.
  • Inability to swim. Parents and guardians can drastically reduce the risk of drowning and water-related injuries by signing up young children for swimming lessons. Children as young as one year old can begin formal swimming lessons.
  • Inadequate warnings and safety measures. Swimming pools, especially residential, should have an appropriate barrier around it, like a fence. Pool owners have a responsibility to keep their pool safe, as it can count as an “attractive nuisance.” Pools should also have “no diving” signs when applicable, and ladders for above ground pools should be locked and inaccessible when not in use.
  • Pool equipment malfunction. Defective drains or pool equipment can cause an adult or child to become trapped at the bottom of a pool or spa, leading to catastrophic or fatal injury.
  • Safety element failure. In addition to fencing, other safety features like pool covers, gates, and alarms can reduce the risk of drownings and injuries. Many drownings and accidents occur right in the backyard and the child was only missing for a few minutes.
  • Improper design and maintenance. The design of the pool and the areas surrounding it can also lead to injuries. Poorly maintained walkways or concrete can cause trips and falls; so can unattended toys and skimmers. If your filter is not set to the side or covered, children can suffer harm if they run into it, or if they try to hang off the PVC piping. The physical design of some pools may also create risks for entrapment or drowning, too – especially if there are special features (like waterfalls or built-in slides) or missing ladders.
