Kirby & Holt - North Carolina Aquatic and Swimming Pool Injury Attorneys
If you or someone in your family was seriously injured or killed in a boating accident, swimming pool accident, or diving accident, or other situation involving water, contact the North Carolina swimming pool injury lawyers at Kirby & Holt in Raleigh.
Our attorneys won the biggest products liability verdict in the swimming pool industry's history when a child was very badly injured when caught in a defective pool drain. Our work in that case led to some of the most effective swimming pool safety legislation in the country, and also won our attorneys David Kirby and John Edwards the American Association for Justice's national public service award in 1997.
We represent plaintiffs in serious personal injury lawsuits and wrongful death claims involving circumstances such as:
- Unsafe or unsupervised swimming pools and spas in hotels, resorts, apartment complexes and recreation centers
- Injuries and deaths on ferries, harbor cruises, or charter fishing boats
- Drowning or severe injuries in quarries, gravel pits, and ponds
- Diving accidents caused by improper training, defective equipment, negligent supervision, or unsafe conditions
While death from drowning is probably the injury that most people think of in connection with accidents on or in the water, other serious injuries can occur in boating accidents or diving mishaps. These include brain damage caused by extended periods of insufficient oxygen and serious spinal cord, back, or neck injuries suffered while diving.
