Swimming Pool Accidents


Most Floridians enjoy swimming pools to escape the searing heat but, unfortunately, swimming pool accidents are a regular occurrence in areas like Naples and Fort Myers.  According to the Center for Disease Control, more children under the age of five in the state of Florida drown than in any other state. 


The swimming pool accident attorneys at The Caldarone Law Group have seen adults and children seriously injured or killed by outdated or malfunctioning pool drain covers and other pool equipment.  Personal injury attorney Justin Caldarone stands ready to help you determine whether someone else’s negligence, carelessness or recklessness caused you or a loved one’s injuries or death.  Our firm has handled cases against landlords, property owners, condominium and homeowner’s associations, caregivers, babysitters, and builders and contractors. 


When evaluating a swimming pool accident case, attorney Caldarone investigates when the swimming pool was built because newer pools are required by law to have certain safeguards in place.  In 2000, the Florida legislature passed a law called the Ibern/McKenzie Merriam Residential Swimming Pool Safety Act, which requires new residential pools, hot tubs and spas to have the following:

  • A barrier surrounding the entire pool four feet tall or higher
  • An approved pool cover
  • Entrances that have self-closing and self-locking devices
  • Alarms on every door and window in a home with direct access to a pool


We Will Go to Trial For You


While personal injury attorney Justin Caldarone seeks a fair settlement for every case, he builds every case with an eye toward trial so that when property owners, or the insurance companies that represent them, do not make a fair settlement offer, he can fight for you in court to get the just compensation you deserve for your injuries, lost wages and pain and suffering. 


Attorney Justin Caldarone handles personal injury and accident claims involving swimming pools throughout the Naples and Fort Myers region.  Regardless of your unique situation, consulting with attorney Justin Caldarone can only benefit you.  The initial case evaluation costs you nothing and we work on a contingency fee basis, meaning you do not pay us anything unless we settle the case or win a verdict at trial.
