SWIMMING ACCIDENTS


Swimming pools are attractive dangers and nuisances for children, teens and adults. Many injuries occur in and around swimming pools. These include:

  • Accidental drowning
  • Lifeguard negligence
  • Absence of a lifeguard
  • Drain suction injuries
  • Slippery surfaces
  • Head injuries
  • Diving board accidents
  • Improper fencing per local municipal code
  • Lack of fencing
  • Uncovered pool
  • Inattention by supervisor
  • Lack of supervision
  • Alcohol or Drug use
  • Failure to warn
  • Many other causes

The owner of the swimming pool is responsible for the safety and well being of the guests in the pool and pool area. This responsibility applies equally to both public pools and private pools, water parks, hotel and motel pools, school pools and more. Swimming pool owners are held to a high standard of care due to the inherent risk of the swimming pool.
