New York City Drowning Accident Lawyer

Manhattan Diving Injury Attorneys

Swimming and diving accidents are unfortunately common at municipal pools, commercial establishments such as health clubs, and other locations throughout New York. Many victims are children, and injuries suffered can be very serious or even fatal.

If you have suffered an injury due to negligence at a pool, or a loved one has tragically drowned or suffered an injury ranging from broken bones to paralysis or brain injury due to oxygen deprivation, it is essential to contact a lawyer with the training and knowledge to determine exactly what happened and pursue a just financial recovery for you.

At the Law Offices of Nussin S. Fogel, we have extensive experience handling complex personal injury and wrongful death claims. We work closely with our clients and their families, doing all we can to support them emotionally and help with practical concerns while offering results-oriented legal representation in a difficult time.

Dedicated To Enforcing Accountability Under Premises Liability Laws

Pool safety is incredibly important, since it takes only an instant for a serious injury or a few minutes for someone to drown. Negligence on the part of a New York City or New York property owner responsible for safety at a swimming pool, water park, pool club or health club can take many forms. In a prompt and thorough investigation, we will consider factors such as:

  • Lifeguard inattentiveness, including failure to enforce safety rules, conduct safety checks and otherwise guard against known dangerous behavior
  • Failure to secure a commercial or private pool area when unattended, creating an “attractive nuisance” that can lead to a drowning or serious injury to a child
  • Failure to properly maintain and repair diving boards, water slides, drain covers and other equipment
