Causes of Swimming Pool Accidents
Swimming pools pose a number of potential threats to both children and adults. The following are some ways in which serious pool injuries can occur:
- Slippery surfaces can lead to falls that cause traumatic head injuries and broken bones
- Lack of fencing to keep children from unintentionally accessing pools without supervision
- Lack of properly trained life guards to prevent drowning or near-drowning
- Absence of the necessary drain covers which are meant to prevent severe injuries to children who can become trapped or injured by the suction of filtering systems
Swimming pool hazards should be taken seriously. Without the proper safety measures, a fun day at the pool can quickly turn tragic. Property owners are, in most cases, responsible for the consequences of swimming pool accidents.
