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.

Client Reviews
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.
★★★★★
Highly recommending Carolyn Frank would be an understatement. Being careful as to whom I would give my case to as I had dedicated most of my adult life to one company. I needed someone who would work for me, value my case and my needs. Carolyn Frank and her valued staff met all of the above. From the first meeting I knew I was in the right office. Her knowledge, professionalism and what I would soon find to be outstanding dedication to my case from her and her staff were second to none.
★★★★★
Mr. Friedman was my choice after a dog bite attack. Him and his firm took on my case in a very professional matter without lacking empathy. I felt like he and his team personally cared for me and they kept me up to date on every step of the process. The outcome was great and I am very happy that I have chosen them. I already have recommended them to my friends and family and if you are looking for legal support I highly recommend a meeting with the firm. Any first time consultation is free, ( to my knowledge). So what do you have to lose. Give them a call! You'll be in great hands.
★★★★★

★★★★★
I met Carolyn Frank about three years ago. Once I met her I knew she was the attorney I needed to handle my case.When we met with her the first time we were there for at least two hours. When I left her office I knew she was the right person to handle my case.At that time my case was 22 years old and I needed someone who knew what they were doing. This was a complex case and it fell under the Long shore Act..There are not many attorneys that handle this type of case in Florida.
