Recovering Compensation Following a New York Labor Day Accident

There is a very good chance you will spend your Labor Day at a friend or family member’s house. Labor Day is a celebration for all the hard work we do, which is why we reward ourselves with pool parties, cookouts, outdoor activities, and more. However, the most important part of a fun and successful Labor Day celebration is safety. Most people do not think they will be injured at a loved one’s house, however, when accidents occur, the injuries sustained are often severe. Nobody wants to think about an accident occurring at such a fun time, however, they do, and if you are injured, there is a very good chance you will seek financial compensation to help cover the cost of your medical bills, in-home care, lost wages, and more. If you find yourself injured in a swimming pool accident, here are some of the questions you may have:

What are the most common causes of swimming pool accidents?

Generally, the root cause of all swimming pool accidents is pool owner negligence. Some examples of swimming pool owner negligence are as follows:

  • Leaving children unattended
  • Failing to ensure all those that cannot stand above the water are wearing flotation devices
  • Failing to remove portable ladders while the pool is not being used
  • Failing to inform all parties not to dive in the pool if it is not safe to do so
  • Swimming under the influence, or letting others do so
  • Allowing people to use electronic devices in the pool
  • Failing to install all necessary barriers, alarms, and fencing in and around the swimming pool area

How do I recover financial compensation following a swimming pool accident in New York?

To recover financial compensation, you must first prove that the injuries you have sustained were due to another party’s negligence. However, this is not always easy, so you and your attorney will have to recover various bits of evidence, including security camera footage, medical documents, police reports, witness statements, pictures of the hazardous conditions, and more. 

What is the statute of limitations in New York?

In New York, the statute of limitations is three years. This means you have exactly three years from the date of your accident to file a personal injury claim. Failing to do so may result in you losing out on the financial compensation you need and deserve. Hire an experienced attorney who can get the ball rolling.
