Swimming pool accidents occur far too often throughout the United States as a result of owner negligence. According to the Center for Disease Control, approximately 3,300 yearly deaths are attributed to drowning or submersion with children under the age of 16 making up nearly 25% of all drowning deaths. With approximately 5,000 additional children experiencing near-drowning that can lead to permanent disability, the need for compensation to cover costs associated with care may be great.
Whether on private property or in a public swimming pool, it is the responsibility of the owner to maintain proper safety precautions in order to keep swimmers safe. Even while the negligent party may be held liable for damages related to a swimming pool accident, this negligence continues in the form of inappropriately maintained safety gear, slippery walkways, broken or defective cleaning equipment and more. The types of injuries that can be sustained may vary, but those victims who suffer a near drowning may be faced with brain damage due to lack of oxygen to the brain. If you have been the victim in a swimming pool accident, talk to a lawyer to begin building your case for dependable compensation.
