Swimming Pool Accident Attorneys

Few summer activities match the excitement of jumping into the pool. Unfortunately, this top source of recreation can also be a huge cause of tragedy. Evidence compiled by the USA Swimming Foundation reveals that at least 148 children under the age of 15 died due to drowning between Memorial Day and Labor Day in 2018. Young children are especially at risk, with research cited by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission listing drowning as the top unintentional cause of death for those between 1 and 4 years old. Pool hazards aren't limited to children — adult tragedies are also far too common.

Common Swimming Pool Injuries

While many people think of poor swimming skills as a chief precursor to drowning, pool-based injuries often result from design flaws or low-quality equipment. The following are a few of the most alarming pool injuries involving negligence:

  • Slip-and-fall injuries such as sprains or broken bones
  • Concussions or spinal injuries from diving into unexpectedly shallow pools
  • Lacerations from sharp edges or rough surfaces
  • Skin irritation from pool chemicals
  • Entrapment via drain suction

Causes of Swimming Pool Injuries

Opportunities for injury abound in and around swimming pools. Many pools lack the basic protections needed to keep swimmers safe. Examples of safety hazards include:

  • Lack of fences or other barriers
  • Faulty ladders
  • Excessively shallow deep ends
  • Lack of anti-entrapment devices
  • Loose tiles or other pool deck hazards

While many accidents occur in backyard pools, public pools aren't necessarily safer. Often, public facilities possess not only the design defects highlighted above but also inattentive lifeguards and other negligent staff members.

Why Work With a Swimming Pool Accident Attorney?

In an environment rife with danger, it can be difficult to determine the exact origin of tragic accidents. A skilled swimming pool attorney can help you determine what, exactly, prompted the incident and who should be held accountable. Your swimming pool accident lawyer can draw on evidence or witness testimony that you might struggle to access alone. With your attorney's help, it may be possible to recover significant damages addressing:

  • Medical care, including hospital expenses and long-term rehabilitation
  • Loss of wages due to time taken off work for recovery
  • Pain and suffering, which could impact your quality of life both now and far into the future
