Legal Help For Injured Victims Of Swimming And Watercraft Accidents

Recovering compensation for a swimming or boating accident can be tricky. Individuals or parents of children assume most of the risk and responsibility for the inherent dangers. A signed waiver of liability may or may not stand up in court, and municipal entities are largely immune from lawsuits.

However, the Law Offices of Shelley L. Stangler, P.C., has successfully recovered compensation for swimming pool accidents, watercraft accidents and other recreation injuries. Shelley Stangler is an accomplished personal injury trial lawyer who is knowledgeable about case law in these accidents and adept at demonstrating negligence.

We are located in Springfield, New Jersey, with offices in New York. If you or your child was injured in a boat/watercraft accident, in a pool, amusement park or sports-related accident, call us today at 877-267-9907 for a free initial consultation.

A Proven Track Record Of Success

Shelley L. Stangler, in her capacity as a trial lawyer and managing attorney for a prior firm, obtained a $4 million recovery on behalf of a 14-year-old girl left in a persistent vegetative state after a swimming injury in a hotel pool. Ms. Stangler demonstrated how the hotel chain's negligence in the design and maintenance of the pool led to the child's accident.

Representation In All Types Of Recreational Accidents

Shelley Stangler has represented victims in a wide range of recreational accidents:

  • Swimming pool injuries (slip and falls, brain damage from oxygen deprivation)
  • Swimmers hit by watercraft (head injury, lacerations)
  • Water park injuries
  • Boating collisions
  • Slip and falls on boats, docks and marinas
  • Gym accidents

The challenge is to prove that the facility owner, the franchise owner, the rental company, the operator of the boat or the manufacturer was negligent. In pool accidents, for example, walking surfaces may be dangerously slippery, depth markings may be inaccurate, or the pool may not be designed to a safe depth for diving. In boating accidents, we might sue the driver for reckless operation, the owner of the craft for negligent entrustment, or the maker of the craft for dangerous defects.

We Have The Resources To Help Strengthen Your Case

The Law Offices of Shelley L. Stangler, P.C., has the resources to hire experts to shed light on these elements of fault. In cases of severe and permanent injury, we also work with doctors, therapists and life care planners to determine appropriate damages for the long-term medical care, lost earning capacity, and personal pain and suffering. We will also pursue wrongful death compensation for a drowning or fatal accident.
