Plaintiff Alleges the Defendant Represented Property as a Bathing Beach, But Posted Absolutely No Warnings or Signs against Diving in the Area
Alonso Krangle LLP a dedicated law firm announces they have filed a diving accident lawsuit on behalf of a-24-year-old financial analyst rendered quadriplegic as a result of a tragic dive into shallow water. The diving accident lawsuit, which was filed in the Supreme Court for the State New York, Suffolk County, alleges the Defendant held the property out as a bathing beach, but posted absolutely no warnings or signs against diving in the area. (Case No. 12-34556)
According to the diving accident lawsuit complaint, the Plaintiff was injured on July 7, 2012, when he dove into shallow water at the Defendant’s bathing beach at the Patchogue Shores Community Center, located on Roosevelt Avenue in East Patchogue, New York. As a result of his accident, the young man was confined to the Stony Brook University Hospital for a period of approximately 3 weeks, and later to the Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation for a period of approximately 2 months. Because of his injuries, the Plaintiff has been unable to work in his profession as a financial analyst since the accident.
The diving accident lawsuit alleges the Defendant was negligent in the ownership, operation, maintenance, and control of the bathing beach by among other things, failing to warn of the existence of shallow water and in failing to provide lifeguards. The complaint further accuses the Defendant of failing to post proper “no swimming” and “no diving” signs as required by law, and of failing to warn of and post notification of varying water depths in order to insure that visitors would not dive into dangerously shallow water.
Keep Water Safety in Mind this Summer
According to statistics from the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission, an estimated 56,000 persons required hospital emergency room treatment for injuries associated with swimming pools, swimming pool slides, and diving boards last year. The World Health Organization reports that water-related impact injuries are usually the result of diving accidents, particularly diving into shallow water and/or hitting underwater obstructions. Diving accidents can result in a number of head and spinal injuries ranging from concussions to various degrees of paraplegia or quadriplegia.
