We represented the family of a toddler who drowned in a neighbor’s swimming pool. Although the parents noticed the child’s absence almost immediately, it was long enough for the boy to fall into the unfenced pool. We presented a wrongful death claim under the neighbor’s home owner’s insurance policy claiming that the pool was an “attractive nuisance” to young children and should have been protected by a fence. We recovered the maximum amount available under the policy as compensation for the child’s tragic death.
