$750,000 settlement for minor seriously injured in swimming pool. The owner of the private pool denied responsibility, claiming their lifeguards were adequately trained and on duty and that there was no way they should have been able to see the boy who was allegedly injured while swimming underwater. Mr. Heslin obtained the services of a swimming pool expert and Mr. Heslin argued that the lifeguard stands were not high enough and that if the lifeguard stands were the proper height, that the lifeguards would have been able to look down into the water and see the young man as opposed to the low lifeguard stands which only enabled the lifeguards to look at the surface of the water, particularly on a sunny day. At the request of his client, Mr. Heslin settled the case for $750,000, although he thought he could do better if the case went to trial.
