Swimming Pool Wrongful Death Case Resolved

In a tragic case involving the death of a nine year old girl, Mr. Skorina teamed up with co-counsel to obtain a six figure settlement in a wrongful death action brought by the girl's mother. The case highlights the dangers of swimming pools, especially those that are poorly designed. The little girl jumped onto a plastic pool cover and quickly became trapped in the cover as pool water rushed over the top of the cover. Expert witnesses opined the cover lacked adequate warnings and was inherently unsafe, as children (and parents) fail to appreciate the risk of jumping onto such covers.
