Swimming Pool Accidents

Swimming pools are an enjoyable way to beat the heat. Unfortunately, swimming pool accidents also claim thousands of lives each year in the United States and are the second leading cause for injury or death by drowning in children under the age of 14.
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), over 5,000 children aged 14 or younger sustain serious injuries each year, resulting in at least 1,000 deaths. Those who are injured need emergency medical and may be permanently injured for life. These accidents could have been prevented with better safety measures, suitable warning signs and increased supervision.

What are the risk factors for swimming pool accidents?
Swimming pool owners must have safety measures in place to protect swimming pool users from serious injuries and fatal accidents. When property owners are negligent, innocent people suffer. The following are risk factors for a swimming pool accident:
- Negligent supervision of children
- Poorly trained staff
- Inadequate lifeguards
- Lack of warning signs and safety rules display
- Absence of lifesaving equipment
- Broken pool ladders and pool surfaces
- Faulty pool equipment and diving board
- Defective pool equipment
- Inadequate fencing around the pool, spa and whirlpool
- Water contamination
- Overcrowding in the pool
- Excessive alcohol on the premises
It is not easy to live with a swimming pool injury. Deprivation of oxygen can cause death or permanent brain damage, requiring lifelong treatment. Diving board accidents can lead to spinal cord injuries, again requiring lifetime care.
