Swimming Pool Accident
Unfortunately, swimming pool accidents occur more often than we might think.
It is estimated that there are more than 10 million swimming pools in the United States. Including more than 350,000 public pools. But as much fun as these swimming pools are, swimming pools can pose a serious hazard, especially for children and those with limited swimming skills.
Many do not realize that, drowning is the second-leading cause of fatalities among children under 15. On average 3 children lose their lives every day every day in swimming pool accidents.
And where a drowning death is avoided, in many cases near-drowning accidents leave victims with severe and life-altering injuries. The attorneys with the Carabin Shaw Law Firm know about the devastation that can be caused by swimming pool accidents. And our Team is sensitive to these losses. We are committed to providing you with the accurate legal advice you need. We will be sensitive to your loss and explain to you the legal options that exist.
According to the CDC, children between the ages of 1 and 4 are those most likely to drown. Research has also found that for each child who loses his or her life by drowning, another 4 children receive emergency medical attention because of near drowning events.
When pool owners fail to use effective barriers, or equipment malfunctions occur, swimming pool toys become hazards or poor maintenance of pool equipment creates dangers or public pools or hotels fail to provide life guards, bad things can happen.
