Common Swimming Pool Accident Injuries
Pools are often great places to spend hot summer days, but they carry all sorts of risks. When pool owners fail to properly warn guests of hazards, any number of injuries can occur, especially on crowded days. Common injuries that happen around pools include:
- Slip and fall injuries: Running, or even walking, around the wet areas immediately surrounding a pool can lead to various slip and fall injuries including strains, sprains, cuts, and even broken bones.
- Diving board injuries: Most diving boards have weight limits, and they should be used in deep ends only. If diving boards are not used properly, they can cause lacerations and deep bruising of the head, neck, and face.
- Drowning: If lifeguards fail in their duty to monitor the safety of patrons in their pools, drowning can unfortunately occur. Drowning can result in permanent brain damage and death in the worst cases.
Who can be held liable for my swimming pool injury?
Liability will depend on the specific nature of your pool injury case. If you were invited to use the pool, by either a home owner or pool owner, the owner can be held liable for your injuries. If you followed all signage and protocol of a public pool and were still injured, the owner of the public pool can be held liable for your injuries. In addition, Florida private resident owners are responsible for maintaining the safety of their own pools, so they can be held liable for injuries in residence accident cases. To learn more about how liability may apply in your case, call us at (561) 689-8180 to get started on your free consultation.
What types of compensation can I pursue?
