Swimming Pool Accidents
Every year, deaths and other serious accidents occur in public and privately-owned swimming pools across the country. According to the Center for Disease Control, pools are the leading cause of injury death among children ages 1-4 and among the most-deadly unintentional injuries to people of all ages.
Swimming pools should be fun. But swimming pool owners and operators also have a responsibility to keep them safe. There can be times when gates are not properly locked, there is inadequate supervision of children or a failure to properly warn regarding the depth of a pool bottom. Swimming lessons and proper life jackets or floaties for those who are unable to properly swim can also prevent these tragedies.
