Pursuing Justice After A Swimming Pool Accident

The Hazards Of A Swimming Pool

California's warm climate is perfect for swimming year round, and many households have pools or hot tubs in their backyards. While pools are a source of fun and entertainment, owning a pool is a big responsibility. The homeowner must ensure that the pool is safe, properly fenced and that people playing in or around the pool are adequately supervised. Injuries or death can occur when these safety precautions are not taken.

Common pool accidents include:

  • Drowning
  • Near-drowning, resulting in brain damage
  • Injuries caused by malfunctioning drain equipment
  • Diving accidents
  • Slip-and-fall injuries
  • Chemical burns
  • Recreational water illnesses

Children are the most common victims of pool accidents. It takes only a short period of time and a small amount of water for a child to drown or suffer life-changing injuries such as brain damage.
