Apartment complex drowning case settlement announced on WAKA8

Montgomery CBS affiliate WAKA8 announced a settlement has been reached in a case where two young boys drowned at an apartment complex pool. The case, which involved Cyprus Court Apartments, alleged negligence on the part of property owners. Beasley, Allen, Crow, Methvin, Portis & Miles, P.C., represented the family of the boys who died. The news report notes neighbors testified there was a large hole in the fence that should have protected the boys from entering the pool area, and that they were aware of other problems with the fence for years. Jere Beasley, Founding Shareholder of the Beasley Allen Law Firm, released a statement that said, “Hundreds of small children are victims of drownings each year in swimming pools. These tragic deaths at the Cyprus Courts Apartments could have been avoided if the management had properly maintained the fence around the swimming pool. Holes in the fence around the pool had existed prior to the event in April of 2012, the latest being found on the previous day. Young children had been known to slip into the pool area for years through holes in the fence. The pool was located next to a playground that was open to children at the time of this incident.” The terms of the settlement are confidential.
