Too many people in Florida die in water.

Over 3500 deaths occur every year by pool drowning

There is no such thing as a minor pool accident or drowning injury.  Few drowning victims survive.  A child who goes several minutes without oxygen may live, but he or she may need lifetime care due to a brain injury.  A teenager diving into shallow water may appear to recover but later in life may develop paralysis as a result of nerve damage. Attorney Tom Woodruff has been representing clients throughout the Tampa and St. Petersburg area since 1969.  As a Florida personal injury lawyer, he has extensive experience with pool drowning claims as well as with Florida premises liability law.  He provides his clients with compassionate counsel and powerful legal representation.

Water sport and drowning accident claims

Florida is the Sunshine State where millions of people take advantage of year-round warm weather and beach vacations.  Water sports opportunities are plentiful.  So are swimming and drowning injuries.  Attorney Tom Woodruff and his staff at Woodruff Injury Law have the experience and resources to handle difficult claims.  We identify negligent parties and help our clients recover compensation in cases involving—
  • Negligent supervision of school, hotel, motel, and therapy pools and spas
  • Dangerous pool design or construction
  • Pools and private lakes that do not have fences
  • Lack of adequate warnings or signs
  • Boating and jet ski accidents
  • Boating while intoxicated
  • Unsupervised pool parties
If a pool drowning or water sports injury has touched your family, you may be overwhelmed by the burdens of your grief, medical and psychiatric treatment, and financial concerns.  It is your lawyer’s job to relieve you of some of that stress so you can focus on rebuilding your life.
