Swimming Pool Accidents

Swimming pools are traditionally associated with fun and relaxation in the sun, but they can also be the sites of unspeakable tragedies for too many families in Southeastern Pennsylvania. Every year, countless people—many of whom are young children—are killed or sustain catastrophic injuries in such accidents at swimming pools as:

  • Diving Board Malfunction
  • Drowning
  • Electrocution
  • Improper Maintenance
  • Improperly Design or Construction
  • Inattentive or Intoxicated Lifeguard
  • Lack of Adequate Warnings
  • Lack of Appropriate Barriers, Fencing, or Safety Equipment
  • Slip And Fall Accidents
  • Unsafe Pool Parts

Whether it is a public pool or a pool on private property, accidents can frequently have fatal results. When victims do survive, they still suffer catastrophic head, neck, or spinal cord injuries. Young children who survive near-drowning experiences often sustain permanent brain damage that leads to a lifetime of additional medical care.

The owners of pools open to the public need to take several precautions to avoid accidents that can lead to premises liability claims. However, homeowners who have swimming pools on their private property can also be considered negligent if they fail to properly supervise occupants of their pools. The owner of a pool can be held liable if people are hurt in any kind of accident involving the pool.

Many pool owners take out insurance policies with very high minimum coverages, but that does not mean that insurance companies will easily pay accident victims financial damages. Instead, insurance adjusters will investigate the circumstances surrounding the accidents and find any way possible to argue that the victim’s own negligence caused his or her injuries.
