The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that the risk of drowning is a serious safety hazard for children in the United States today, with as many as two children dying every day as the result of drownings. A majority of these incidents occur in swimming pools.
These hazards hit home this month in Middle Tennessee when a 6-year-old boy was struggling to hold onto his life after a Goodlettsville swimming pool accident. Reports indicate the incident occurred on the afternoon of Friday, July 11.
An article from News Channel 5 states the victim was part of a group of children swimming in the pool as part of a summer camp program. Adults who were supervising the children said they had been in the pool for around five minutes when they noticed the child at the bottom of the pool.
He was pulled to safety and CPR was administered immediately, but the child has been comatose since the accident. Now, the victim’s family is unsure if he will fully recuperate from his injuries.
The Nashville personal injury lawyers with Ponce Law would like to send their thoughts to the victim and his family as he continues to recover from this tragic accident. The firm would also like to remind you to take extra precautions around the pool by:
Learning to swim or teaching others to swim.
Always swimming with supervision.
Taking extra precautions to secure pool areas when not in use.

Always very professional. When we first called we had no idea if we even had a case, they told us we did. And even though the resolution took a little bit longer than expected, the wait was worth it. They get results and I really appreciated that they consistently gave me updates on the status of my case without me even asking. Thank you Ponce Law!

HEAR IT STRAIGHT FROM OUR CLIENTS
I was driving down I-40 when I got hit by another car. I called Michael Ponce because I wanted an attorney right here in Nashville. As soon as I called, I knew I made the right decision, and Ponce Law got me the money I needed to get back on my feet. I highly recommend Ponce Law!
After my car accident, I wasn’t sure if I needed an attorney. I called Ponce Law for a free consultation. I’m so glad I made the call. I wanted a local attorney, and from the first call, to when my case was settled, I felt heard, valued, and taken care of.
I was on I-40 coming into Nashville and a car ran into the back of me. The accident was serious, and I needed surgery. I did ask an attorney friend of mine whom I should call, and he said call Ponce Law. The folks at Ponce Law were outstanding and got us a large settlement.
