Unfortunately, there are numerous swimming pool accidents and deaths related to drowning that occur every year. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, ten people die every day from drowning, and 2 out of the 10 are children who are 14 years old or younger. Drowning is the ranked fifth in leading causes of unintentional injury death in our country. The CDC also says that swimming pool accidents that do not result in a fatality can still cause serious injuries, including long-term disabilities like memory problems, learning disabilities and a permanent vegetative state.
Swimming pool owners or operators’ negligence is often the cause of swimming pool accidents. The owners of the pools, including hotels, spas, resorts, homeowners, water parks, schools and public pools are required to provide a swimming pool that is safe and has taken precautions against swimming pool
The most common causes of a swimming pool accident are:
- Contaminated water
- Defective/ inadequate safety equipment
- Defective drains
- Inadequate lifeguard supervision
- Inadequate warning signs
- Ineffective barriers around the swimming pool
If you or a loved one has suffered injury or death from a swimming pool accident, you may be eligible for compensation through a premises liability or wrongful death lawsuit against the swimming pool owner or operator.
