Common Causes of Pool Accidents

In many cases, drowning accidents involve young children. In fact, approximately 5,000 children are hospitalized each year for drowning or near-drowning injuries. About 1 in 5 of these children will suffer from permanent neurological damage, which can subsequently result in costly medical expenses and the need for long-term care. If you or your child was injured by the negligent actions of a swimming pool owner, you should seek the compensation you deserve.

Some of the most common causes of swimming pool accidents:

  • Failure to include a gate around the pool area
  • Lack of supervision when children are in the pool
  • Defective pool ladders, drain covers or pool lights
  • Lack of safety equipment (i.e. throwing ropes and buoys)
  • Failure to employ an adequate number of lifeguards
  • Failure to clean murky or unclear pool water
