Settlement reached in Pool Entrapment Case of Minor Child at Resort Resulting in Brain Damage

Aljuwon Pipkin, guest at a Hotel Resort Orlando in Osceola County, was suctioned in the pool drain and could not be removed because of the Defendant's failure to have an "off-switch".

Aljuwon remained trapped under water for almost ten minutes, causing him to sustain brain damage requiring life-long medical care. On August 25th, 2011, Ira Leesfield, on behalf of Aljuwon Pipkin and his mother, who witnessed the near drowning incident, settled this brain damage claim for a confidential amount with the Hotel Resort Defendant. It is the largest result in this type of case in Osceola County.

I have known Ira for several decades and without a doubt he represents the best of the profession- a never ending commitment to his clients and a perpetual desire for learning and sharing his expertise with his colleagues. Richard
★★★★★
I found, and still find, that Ira’s firm will evaluate the case fairly and provide the client with a reasonably expectation of the process involved and will avoid giving false hope where there is none. Also Ira’s firm consistently keeps in constant touch with the client as well as referring attorneys so each knows the progress of a case. Finally I can tell you that if I personally were injured, Ira Leesfield is the first person I would call. Michael Browning
