By law, all swimming pool owners and operators have a duty to the general public to provide a safe environment for both children and adults, and to focus on accident prevention. Unfortunately, these tragic accidents still occur.
Each year, thousands of individuals are either injured or killed in swimming pool-related accidents. Common injuries stemming from such accidents are drowning, sprains, spinal cord injury, head trauma, and wrongful death. In fact, statistics issued by federal government state that among children ages 1 to 14, fatal drowning is the second leading cause of death related to unintentional injury.
Oftentimes, swimming pool accidents occur because property owners fail to take proper precautions, leaving pools improperly secured or maintained. Examples of these instances are pools that are not equipped with appropriate fencing or enclosures, pool areas without sufficient lighting, pools with insufficient warning signs or signs regarding water depth, or pools with negligent or without adequate supervision.
