Drowning And Other Swimming Pool Accidents
Most Floridians enjoy swimming pools to escape the searing heat but, unfortunately, Floridians are also very familiar with swimming pool accidents. According to the Center for Disease Control, more children under the age of 5 in the state of Florida drown than in any other state.
As the founder of The Caldarone Law Group, P.A., in Naples, I have seen dangerous impact pools and pool equipment can have and the injuries they inflict upon unsuspecting swimmers. I am a personal injury attorney who stands ready to help you determine whether someone else’s negligence, carelessness or recklessness caused you or a loved one’s injuries or death. My firm has handled cases against landlords, property owners, condominium and homeowners associations, caregivers, babysitters, and builders and contractors.
The first step in any swimming pool injury case is to determine when a pool was built. If the pool was built after 2000, following the passage of the Ibern/McKenzie Merriam Residential Swimming Pool Safety Act, Florida law requires that barriers, pool covers, locking devices and other protections be in place and in good working order. This is also true of hot tubs and spas.

The initial case evaluation costs you nothing, and I work on a contingency fee basis, meaning you do not pay me anything unless I settle the case or win a verdict at trial.
