Tampa Swimming Pool and Drowning Accidents
Personal Injury and Wrongful Death Lawyers Serving Tampa
According to statistics published by the federal government, one of the
leading causes of death in children aged 1 to 14 is drowning. Fatal drowning
accounts for the second largest percentage of unintentional injury-related
deaths in this age group. For the age group of 1 to 4, accidental drowning
is the biggest cause of injury-related deaths. According to the Florida
County Property Appraisers, Florida has the highest rate of drowning fatalities
for children 5 and under in the nation.
These alarming statistics point out how dangerous swimming pools can be for families and those who entertain families. Because of its semi-tropical climate, Florida is a state with a large number of residential swimming pools. It is also a state where boating and swimming in oceans and waterways are popular activities.

Ernie was the epitome of a silver lining in an unfortunate situation. Having never dealt with an attorney in any sort of professional capacity, I was quite intimidated by the prospect. However, Ernie quickly put my mind at ease. Throughout the entirety of my case, he kept in constant contact with me. He updated me on new developments every step of the way and was more than willing to decipher all legal jargon that came my way. He worked tirelessly to yield the best possible results from my case. From the day of our first interaction, I knew the case was in capable hands.- Cullen Murphy
