Swimming Pool Safety

Public Awareness Campaign

15 Passenger VanLawsuits do more than protect the rights of victims. Often, they can lead to new laws that improve safety for everyone. That's exactly what happened in a case that involved the most tragic of incidents - the death of a child. A few years ago, pools in Corpus Christi weren't required to have any type of barrier around them. But the family of a toddler who nearly drowned - and suffered fatal brain damage - sued the apartment complex where the incident occurred. Afterwards, the owner of the complex joined the victim's lawyer, David Perry, in petitioning the City Council for greater pool safety measures. The result was a new ordinance that requires all swimming pools within the city limits to be fenced. After this case, many cities throughout Texas also implemented similar building codes for swimming pools and ordinances to protect children from this potential danger.
