Swimming and Diving Accidents
Swimming pools can be fun on a warm day, but that fun can quickly turn to tragedy. When residential and business owners and managers negligently fail to make their swimming pools safe, death and serious injuries might occur. People can drown, fall on wet concrete or other surfaces, contract infectious illnesses from unclean water, sustain brain or neck injuries from diving, break their bones, and more.
There are certain basic safety precautions that owners and managers of public and private premises should reasonably take with respect to their swimming pools and diving boards. Children are particularly vulnerable to swimming pool accidents because they don’t appreciate the risks that pools create. Reasonable care should be exercised to eliminate dangers and otherwise protect children from the pool. The pool should be supervised when children are using it. Warning signs should be conspicuously displayed. Many diving accidents occur when a person dives into the shallow end because no signs are posted. Measures should be taken to make sure that the water is clean and that the chemicals are appropriately balanced.
What to Do If You’ve Been Injured:
If you have been injured in a swimming or diving accident at someone’s home, apartment, hotel, motel, place of business, or any other residential or business place, you should call a lawyer after you have received medical treatment. A lawyer will help you determine whether you are entitled to be compensated for your injuries.
