Swimming Pool Accidents

Each and every year over 1,000 children die in swimming pools and diving-related accidents.  Over 5,000 individuals are hospitalized as a result of swimming pools and diving-related accidents. And over 200 children are injured in spas and whirlpools.  In many cases the loss is a result of negligence or the result of product defects.  If you need more information on what can be done in the event of such a loss, call us toll free at 1.800.862.1260.

It should also be noted that adults are not immune from swimming pool accidents. Many adults suffer severe injuries in swimming pools. And many severe spinal cord injuries are caused by diving into water that is too shallow. A pool owner can be held responsible.

If you or a loved has been injured or drown in a swimming pool, please contact our Firm immediately. Swimming accidents may result in serious disabilities and injuries, and the negligent property owners can be held accountable for the injuries that they have caused.

Did you know that a majority of swimming pool related injuries occur as the result of improperly designed and constructed pools, poor pool maintenance, and lack of pool fences or covering. Did you know that every year more than 1,000 children die due to swimming accidents; with approximately 33% of those fatalities taking place in swimming pools. In addition to the deaths of children, thousands of adults die and suffer serious injuries annually in swimming accidents.

Property owners who have swimming pools, such as home, apartment, and hotel owners, are responsible for providing a safe area for adults and children to enjoy. The property owner can be held legally responsible for any injuries sustained in the swimming pool. If a guest or visitor is injured or drowns in another person's pool, the accident may be considered a premises liability if the accident was due to the negligence of the property owner who failed to provide a safe environment.

Swimming related accidents and drowning can result in devastating consequences, including death, brain injuries and paralysis. These life-altering injuries require the victim to sustain a variety of medical expenses, such as surgeries, medications, and visits to specialists.

If you are a victim of a pool, diving or swimming accident, it is important to contact our Office.
