Swimming Pool Injuries

Swimming pools and natural bodies of water, as much fun as they are to use, pose unique risks to their users. Certain safety standards are necessary in order to ensure swimming remains a hobby. Common causes for swimming pool injuries include:

  • Lack of supervision
  • Improperly marked depths
  • Slippery decks
  • Broken or poorly maintained equipment

In the case of children, extra supervision and caution is required.

  • Improper supervision
    • Whether the adults in charge were not paying enough attention or were not being mindful of each child’s swimming ability, improper supervision has led to numerous swimming pool injuries every year.
  • Improper safety procedures
    • Often parents, lifeguards, and others do not insist that children follow all necessary safety procedures, including using floaters or not running around a pool. Improper safety procedures can also stem from poor maintenance, such as not keeping the area surrounding a pool dry, and clear of debris.
  • Failure to stop roughhousing
    • Children are not the best at judging when their playful actions cross the line, potentially causing injury or even death.

McLeish Orlando can obtain damages for individuals and their families who sustain injuries related to swimming in pools or in natural bodies of water.
