Causes of Swimming Pool Accidents

We've all heard the terrible stories of children and adults alike who suffer serious personal injury or death in a poolside accident. It may be the unfortunate case that you or someone you love is the victim of such a tragedy. All kinds of injuries can result in or near a swimming pool, from concussions to broken bones to drowning accidents. In fact, each of the following could cause an injury around a pool area:

When the property owner fails to post appropriate signs and rules regarding pool behavior, keep the area clear of hazards, or maintain the equipment, they could be held responsible for any consequent accidents and injuries. Common injuries include head and neck injuries from diving accidents and slip and fall accidents, broken bones, and wrongful death from drowning accidents.

Swimming Accidents & Wrongful Death

Wrongful death is particularly common in swimming pool accidents when children are involved. Oftentimes a responsible party is negligent when watching the child and fails to notice that they have fallen into the water or have sunk below the surface. A child - or even an adult - might even hit their head and fall unconscious in the water without being noticed, resulting in drowning. In such cases, the immediate family of the deceased can fight for compensation regarding funeral and burial costs, loss of income, grief and suffering, and loss of companionship.
