Bay Area Attorney for Pool Drownings & Injuries

When a Drowning Occurs, Family Members Need Top-Notch Advice & Assistance

A swimming pool drowning or injury is  just one type of personal injury claim that we specialize in when fighting for our clients’ rights in court. For more about our personal injury services, please see our “Bay Area Personal Injury Attorney” page. Or for other types of personal injury claims we support, see the links below.

When negligence causes a drowning death or hypoxic brain injury, surviving family members need top-notch legal advice.  Prompt investigation of the accident and subsequent legal action are essential.  At Venardi Zurada LLP, our San Francisco Bay Area attorneys aggressively represent the families of victims in drowning accident cases involving private and public swimming pools. Our firm also represents clients in drowning cases involving maritime workers, Jones Act claims, and longshore and harbor workers claims.

Beginning Litigation in a Timely Manner is Critical

If the drowning happened in a publicly owned swimming pool, you have only six months to notify the government of your claim. Before any more time passes, get legal advice. If the accident occurred in a private swimming pool, you should still obtain legal help as soon as possible. It is important to begin the legal process quickly with an attorney experienced in swimming pool accidents who can preserve evidence, contact witnesses, and collect other relevant information.

Contact Venardi Zurada LLP today for a free consultation about your swimming pool accident case. We represent clients in in Walnut Creek, the San Francisco Bay Area, Oakland, Marin County, Santa Cruz, the East Bay, and throughout Northern California.  Our firm typically operates on a contingency fee basis, which means that if we do not make a recovery for you, we will not collect a fee. Call 925-937-3900 or contact us online.
