California Swimming Pool Accident Lawyer
Swimming pools are popular additions to suburban homes and provide years of enjoyment when used safely. When they are not used safely, they pose as a significant danger to swimmers. Improper care and safety precautions are the most frequent causes of swimming pool accidents. There are many potential dangers. Swimmers can slip or fall on slick decking surrounding the pool when proper warning signs or supervision are not present. Divers can suffer catastrophic head injuries by hitting the bottom of the pool if allowed to jump headfirst into shallow areas.
Injuries from swimming pool accidents can be severe. Slips can result in broken or fractured bones, torn ligaments, dislocated hips, and sprains. Unsupervised diving may cause injuries to the brain and spinal cord that result in paraplegia, quadriplegia, paralysis, and death. The potential exists that injuries will require extensive and ongoing medical treatment.
If negligence can be shown on the part of the swimming pool owner or custodian, injury victims can be compensated for their medical expenses and suffering. Neglectful or inappropriate acts by facility employees, life guards, and supervisors may contribute to the injury of swimmers, many of whom are children who deserve a higher standard of care than older people.
