Types of Swimming Pool Accidents

While swimming pools provide a relaxing and refreshing place to cool off in the summertime, they also create situations for numerous types of accidents to occur. Unfortunately, accidents aren’t predictable and can occur at any time, even when taking precautions. Accidents are even more likely if the pool has safety hazards or is not up to code. That’s why it’s essential to have an experienced legal team on your side should you ever get injured at a pool. All of the following types of accidents can occur in or around pools:

  • Slip and fall injuries
  • Diving board injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Lacerations
  • Infections
  • Electrocution
  • Drowning

Who is Responsible for Swimming Pool Accidents?

Though there are some exceptions, in most cases, the property owner is responsible for accidents occurring at their pool, especially if they have not implemented the proper safety features required by law. California law requires that homeowners with pools implement at least two of seven approved safety measures, while public pools are held to even higher standards. If you believe your injury was caused by the negligence of an individual or municipality that hadn’t implemented the correct safety features, you could be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Let our team help you get the money you deserve.

Preventative Measures to Avoid Pool Accidents

Though accidents can never be predicted, there are several steps you can take to help prevent swimming pool accidents from occurring on your property. Even small measures can help you avoid devastating outcomes. Make sure to read all state and local laws about pools, so you can protect yourself and anyone who uses your pool. Some of the best ways to help avoid pool accidents include:

  • Ensure children are supervised at all times
  • Post appropriate warning signage alerting people to risks and pool rules
  • Keep the area clear of toys to prevent tripping
  • Do not allow diving in shallow water
  • Make sure someone present knows CPR
  • Do not allow the consumption of alcoholic beverages
  • Ensure proper safety features are utilized
