Swimming Pool Accidents
When individuals go swimming, they believe they will be safe. They trust the facility or pool will meet current safety guidelines, and that they will not be in any danger. Pool owners and caretakers are responsible to ensure their facility meets the standards set within current safety guidelines. Swimmers can easily suffer an accident as a result of:
- Shallow water areas devoid of proper signage
- Lack of depth markings or improper depth markings
- Slippery pool decks
- Broken or damaged diving boards, ladders, slides, stairs, etc.
- Improper lifeguard supervision, including failing to limit exuberant play
Injuries can include spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, fractures, or even drowning.
