Swimming pools can be fun and a great source of entertainment â€“ your whole family can enjoy themselves at a swimming pool. Swimming is a popular sport and enjoyable pastime, but swimming pools are not without their own safety risks. Regardless of a personâ€™s swimming ability, if a pool is not properly maintained or if there is inadequate pool supervision, your family can have a devastating accident â€“ and it may take a long time to heal.
People are injured or killed every year in swimming pool accidents, leaving accident victims and their families facing an uncertain future. Many swimming pool accidents occur as the result of:
- Lack of depth markings
- Lack of warning signs for shallow water
- Improperly marked depths
- Slippery pool decks
- Defective, broken or poorly maintained pool equipment (diving boards, handrails, ladders, slides, etc.)
- Lack of supervision or absence of lifeguards
- Failure to limit horseplay or roughhousing
Swimming pool injuries often result in very traumatic injuries. This could include paraplegia, quadriplegia, paralysis, spinal cord or head injuries, and broken bones. If a swimming pool accident has caused you, your child or your loved serious injury and the owner or caretaker is negligent; you may make a claim and be entitled to benefits for your sustained and future healthcare costs, and economic or other losses. Our experienced lawyers will address all the factors in your case and help you through each step of the legal process.
Simple rules such as not running on the pool deck, enforcing time limits in hot tubs and the proper use of flotation devices must be obeyed. If the posted safety guidelines are not enforced by parents and lifeguards drowning can be a tragic event that will forever leave a scar on your family.
Pool owners and caretakers have responsibilities:
- To clearly post safety guidelines
- To ensure their facility is properly marked
- To ensure their facility is in compliance with the most recent safety guidelines
If responsibilities are not met, individuals may be at a greater risk of suffering spinal cord injuries, fractured necks or other bones, or even drowning.
