Swimming pool accidents can occur in municipal swimming pools, heath clubs, apartment buildings, hotels, private residences and other premises. Unsafe swimming pools can result in brain damage, injuries to the head and spinal cord, and fatal drowning injuries.
Common causes of swimming pool accidents include:
- Inadequate warning signs
- Inadequate fencing
- Faulty pool covers
- Faulty drains, pumps and other components
Unfortunately, most people injured in swimming pool accidents are children. Swimming pools present to children what the law calls an “attractive nuisance.” For this reason, it is the swimming pool owner’s responsibility to keep the property fenced off from neighbors and even strangers who may wander on to the property.
