Swimming Pool Accidents
Swimming pools provide one of the most relaxing ways for individuals to cool off during the warmer months with their family and friends. When we visit someone else’s pool, we rightfully expect that the pool will not only be safe, but properly supervised. Unfortunately, when property owners fail to keep their pools safe, accidents may result, leaving individuals with devastating injuries.
Common Swimming Pool Injuries
A fun and enjoyable day at the pool can quickly become catastrophic if a negligent property owner fails to take the necessary steps to make their pool safe for their guests. These injuries often necessitate serious medical and rehabilitative care that can impose substantial financial burdens on victims and their families. Swimming pool injuries can occur in and out of the water due to a negligent property owner, and may include:
- Drowning injuries
- Spinal and back injuries
- Head injuries
- Broken bones
- Electrocution, as result of damaged pool equipment in the water
Whether there wasn’t a lifeguard on duty or a diving board was unsafe to use, pool injuries can be life-changing. Due to the implications of these accidents, it is often necessary to take legal action against a careless property owner to offset the serious financial burdens of an accident. However, taking on these cases alone can be overwhelming, making the assistance of an experienced lawyer essential.
