Drowning

Miami Drowning LawyerFlorida Pool Death Liability Lawyer — Representing Victims of Wrongful Death or Injurydrowning

There are many cases in which the costs of a loved one drowning can be overwhelming, both in terms of monetary and emotional grief. The law allows family members to recover compensation for the damages they have experienced. These include hospital bills, funeral costs and emotional grief.

At the South Florida law offices of Friedman, Rodman & Frank, P.A., we represent the surviving families of people killed in public and private pools, as well as lakes, canals, oceans and rivers. Many of the cases we handle involve people killed while at sea. We handle these cases using in-depth knowledge of admiralty and maritime law .

Children and Drowning Accidents

Drowning is one of the leading causes of childhood death in the United States. The risk of drowning can happen anywhere. While it is difficult to predict when a drowning or near-drowning accident may occur, it is relatively easy to take precautions to ensure the safety of children in the area.

Pool owners should make sure that swimmers are supervised while using the pool and should provide the proper safety equipment. They should also close and lock pool gates and fences when the pool is not in use.

Sadly, these things are not always done. When pool owners fail to take proper action and when drownings occur in their pools, it may be possible to hold them accountable for the death. The wrongful death claim can likely be made against the pool owner's homeowner's and general liability insurance company.

Pool Injuries

Most people realize that drowning is a potential hazard whenever there is a pool around, but drowning is not the only way that people are injured in pools. Missing pool safety equipment or faulty swimming pool drains can cause serious personal injury and wrongful death. These can lead to body entrapment, hair entrapment and evisceration. Injuries may also be sustained when pool patrons slip and fall on the pool deck. At Friedman, Rodman & Frank, P.A., we understand the suffering that pool injury victims and their families experience, so we forcefully advocate for their rights in Florida courts.

Carolyn Frank and her firm represented me on a workers compensation injury case, under the defense base act. She did a excellent job from the moment I contacted her until 3 years later the case was settled. Every benefit I was entitled too, Carolyn fought hard to secure. E-mails and phone calls were always returned promptly. Definitely 5 star rating. Daniel

I can't express how grateful I am for Elizabeth Estrada, attorney, and Elizabeth Cantin, secretary, for all the hard work in order to defend me in my time of need. My lawyer and secretary spent time explaining each step and what was to be expected. Because of this I felt a part of the whole process and understood what was going on. Thank you so much for all your hard work!

I would like to thank the staff of Friedman, Rodman and Frank, P.A. The staff is professional. My attorney, Ronald Rodman, was responsive towards my email and a great advocate on my behalf for my car accident. I highly recommend this office. I hope that I will not get in a car accident again, but if I do, I'm calling Mr. Rodman. Orlando R.
