Swimming Pool Accident Attorney
Believe it or not, swimming pool accidents occur at an alarmingly high rate throughout the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), approximately 3,500 people die in drowning accidents each year, a large majority of which happen in swimming pool incidents where a child or adult slips and falls, dives, or jumps improperly into the pool. While it is true that swimming pools can provide hours of enjoyment for both you and your family, they also pose risks and can be extremely dangerous. With more than 10 million swimming pools in the United States, it is a wonder we don’t see even more accidents resulting in serious injury or death. Injuries can occur at private pools, public pools, pools at a person’s home, indoor pools, outdoor pools..the list goes on. Public pools are required by law to have a specified number of lifeguards on duty based on the number of people in the pool. On the other hand, homeowners must take proper safety precautions and follow their state’s regulations regarding swimming pools in order to ensure the safety of those using their pool.

Types of Swimming Pool Accidents
Swimming pool accident injuries are quite common and can happen in all different types of situations, including the following:
- Slipping and falling near a pool
- Being injured by, or due to, a diving board
- Near drowning
- Intestinal injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Compromised respiratory systems
- Unsafe pool parts
Probably the most common cause of swimming pool accidents are negligence and defective pool or spa parts. Negligence can occur when a pool is not properly secured or maintained, or if children in the pool are not being supervised. If you have been injured in a swimming pool accident, you will likely need to file a claim against the insurance company that provides homeowner or liability coverage for the person or organization who owns the pool where the accident took place.

Many swimming pool accidents occur when a swimmer falls, dives, or jumps into the pool. Another major cause of death and injury is the result of a swimmer becoming entangled or trapped in suction drains or other defective pool materials. Non-fatal injuries can be severe, including brain damage, head and neck injuries, broken bones, limb injuries, and spinal cord injuries. In many cases, the cause of the accident is not a careless swimmer. Rather, it is caused by negligent maintenance or improperly installed or defective pool components.
