Las Vegas Swimming Pool Accidents
Swimming pool accidents in Las Vegas or elsewhere in Nevada often cause serious personal injuries and can lead to a wrongful death lawsuit.
In many cases, these accidents occurred because someone failed to take steps to protect swimmers’ safety or address a dangerous obstacle near the swimming pool. That’s why slip-and-fall accidents and hotel accidents often occur in or around swimming pools. It will take an experienced Las Vegas premises liability lawyer to help set things right.

Should I file a lawsuit if I’m injured in a swimming pool accident in Las Vegas?
Swimming pool accident claims can often be complicated. Many swimming pool accidents in Las Vegas occur at hotels in Las Vegas and Nevada that are owned by large corporations.

Our knowledgeable attorneys can help level the playing field. We can help you navigate the legal system and the laws that are applicable to your case.
Sometimes accidents occur at pools owned by friends or family members
When pool accidents occur at a friend’s or neighbor’s house, injury victims and their families often are reluctant to take legal action. But what many people might not realize is you don’t have to file a lawsuit against your friend. In most cases, most swimming pool accident claims are handled directly by the property owner’s insurance company.
