Pool, Water Park, Or Lake Water Injuries

Waterpark

If you enjoy water sports, pools, or boating in Clearwater, Hudson, or Tampa, you are not alone. Many Florida residents and visitors flock to water destinations for exercise, recreation, and, for some, employment. While pools, beaches, and water parks can be places where wonderful memories are made, there are also times when accidents occur. Water accident injuries can result in high medical expenses. It is also common for victims to need to take time off from work to heal.

A family can be overwhelmed emotionally and financially following water injuries. But there may be a path to a full and fair financial recovery package. If an insurance company has offered you a settlement amount, do not sign until you talk to an experienced personal injury lawyer. It’s possible the offered amount is lower than what would be possible with a skilled attorney on your side.

Risks at Beaches, Water Parks, Lakes, and Pools

There are many dangers when people are around or in bodies of water. For example, boats and other water crafts can lead to accident injuries. It is essential that maritime vehicles are operated by people who are trained and licensed. Risky behavior on the part of a boat operator could include speeding or being under the influence.

Other risks include maritime life. Pool water needs to be treated properly and individuals need to be informed of animal risks, when appropriate. If bacteria, parasites, sharks, or jellyfish have led to hospitalizations and injuries, there could be a path to compensation.

Ways to Stay Safe When Enjoying Florida Water Destinations

While there are steps individuals can take to help keep themselves and their loved ones safe, there are times when accidents still happen. And when an accident occurs, injuries can result.

When boating, for instance, you can make sure that someone on the vessel is CPR certified. You can also fit everyone on the boat with life jackets and have a boat operator who is licensed and would never boat under the influence of drugs or alcohol. But even with all of those precautions in place, a defect in the boat you rented could lead to an accident. If that defect was due to poor maintenance, the boat owner may be held liable.

Seeking medical care following an accident injury is essential. Looking over your injuries, a doctor can determine the appropriate treatment plan. This will help you heal and the medical record could strengthen your personal injury claim later. Accident expenses can be far higher than a person can afford. Connect with a skilled Florida personal injury lawyer to understand the worth of your claim.

Do you need help navigating insurance conversations following a water-related injury? Talk to a skilled legal professional to understand what your options are moving forward.
