What Happens In A Second Can Cause Lasting Damage
Injuries at a swimming pool can happen for a variety of reasons and several parties could be negligent. It’s the responsibility of the pool owner to ensure that proper drains, anti-entrapment and safety systems are being used. Other common causes of swimming pool accidents and swimming pool drownings include:
- Negligent supervision
- Absence of proper barriers between pool areas
- Inadequate signage regarding wet areas or shallow water
- Broken diving boards or other equipment
- A variety of other safety hazards
Because public pools are common destinations for families, children may be at risk to injury if the pool isn’t properly cared for (aka swimming pool negligence). If a child is injured, they may need daily or monthly medical care for the rest of their lives. Drowning, falling, diving accidents, slipping or other injuries can cause lasting physical or psychological damage. These losses can devastate a family. The attorneys at Gamez Law Firm will seek maximum compensation, whether the injured party is an adult or a child, so that money to cover unexpected expenses isn’t a concern.
