Swimming Injuries or Drownings in Southwest Missouri

A day in the sun or a cool splash in the pool can end in tragedy when a pool or swimming area is unsupervised or holds hidden dangers. There are important questions to be answered whenever a person drowns or a swimmer is injured. At the Law Offices of Dan Moody and Paul Wacker, L.L.C., we are well equipped to investigate swimmer accidents and hold the negligent parties accountable.

We will aggressively advocate on behalf of children or adults who suffered injury or died at municipal swimming pools, commercial water parks, motel/hotel pools, public beaches or private backyard pools.

We can review any swimming pool or water accident for liability.

Our Springfield lawyers handle personal injury and wrongful death litigation in southwest Missouri and northwest Arkansas. Contact us today for a free consultation.

Springfield Swimming Pool Accident Attorneys

Property owners and administrators have an extra duty of caution when it comes to swimming pools and other water attractions. Attorneys Dan Moody and Paul Wacker excel at demonstrating the dangerous condition or negligence that led to a drowning or injury:

  • No lifeguard on duty or negligent supervision
  • Tripping and slipping hazard
  • Substandard pool design (diving area too shallow)
  • Defective equipment (diving board, drain cover)
  • Failure to cordon off swimming areas
  • Attractive nuisance (no fence or gate to keep children out)
  • Swimmers struck by watercraft

In addition to drowning deaths, swimming and diving accidents can result in severe injuries: spinal cord injury and paralysis, neck and back injuries (broken vertebra, herniated disc), brain injury (head trauma or near-drowning), broken bones and fractures. We work closely with clients to detail the extent of injury and ongoing medical needs, along with damages for lost income, lasting disability, and pain and suffering.
