Swimming Pool Filter Explosions

Swimming Pool Filters

pool_sideAttorney Michael Workman is one of the leading plaintiff’s attorneys prosecuting injury claims caused by the catastrophic explosion of highly pressurized swimming pool filters. These two-piece filter canisters often explode without warning. The trapped, compressed air inside these pool filters can rocket the filter top over 100 feet in the air.

Feasible design alternatives to eliminate these explosions have been available for decades, yet despite over 200 incidents of traumatic brain injury, and multiple deaths, many manufacturers still refuse to retrofit or recall these backyard time bombs.

Michael’s most recent victories include settlements for two homeowners, one in Arizona and the other in Maryland, each of whom suffered closed head injuries when the top half of their pool filters blew off and struck them in the forehead.

A few years ago, Michael was instrumental in resolving a similar case in which a young father suffered blindness and severe brain damage in a pool filter explosion.

Over the last 20 years, Michael has successfully sued the major swimming pool equipment manufacturers, including Anthony Industries, Anthony Pools, Pac-Fab, Sta-Rite, Voss, R.G. Ray Co., Pentair, and KDI American Products.
