Pool accidents involving children can be very serious. One of the first things you should do is seek medical assistance. Then, take pictures of the surrounding area to preserve any evidence of negligence, such as a defective diving board or a broken ladder. Also, write down the names of any of anyone who may have witnessed the accident. Make sure that you keep any and all medical records related to the accident as well as the police report. These documents will be helpful when you speak with an experienced South Carolina pool accident lawyer, which should be the next step that you take. Throughout this process, you should not speak with an insurance company. Your personal injury attorney should handle speaking with the insurance company so that your rights are fully protected.
