About Swimming Pool Accidents

Swimming Pool Accidnets
There are over 3,300 unintentional drownings that occur in the United States every year, and for each of those drowning deaths, one to four nonfatal submersions occur that are serious enough to require hospitalization.

Swimming pools provide many opportunities for people to be seriously injured or wrongfully killed, whether it be slip and falls on slippery pool grounds, injury sustained in a diving accident, or drowning accidents in the pool itself. There are over 3,300 unintentional drownings that occur in the United States every year, and for each of those drowning deaths, one to four nonfatal submersions occur that are serious enough to require hospitalization.

What leads to these accidents?

Pool and drowning incidents are often the result of negligence in one form or another. For instance, most diving accidents occur in 3 ¼ feet of water or less, with only 13% occurring in a water depth of 3 ¼ to 9 feet. The conditions that bring about these accidents are many, but a few of the most common include:

  • Poor pool or pool area design
  • Lack of proper maintenance
  • Lack of supervision or on-duty lifeguards
  • Lack of posted warning or safety signage
  • Insufficient or no safety fencing or barriers
  • Lack of rescue equipment
  • Defective products, such as filters or other pool equipment

Am I eligible to seek compensation?

In the event that a drowning or other swimming pool injury occurs because of negligence, the responsible parties may be financially liable for injuries and losses the victim has suffered.
