Mooresville Swimming Pool Accident Lawyers
Drowning in deep water is not the only way that swimmers die or are injured in swimming pools. Toddlers can drown in very shallow wading pools. Even experienced swimmers are sometimes injured or killed in freak accidents such as drowning resulting from sudden muscle cramps.
Other common swimming pool injuries and fatalities include:
- Diving board accidents
- Drain accidents
- Cuts and bruises from falls and contact with fixtures such as water slides, fountains and novelty features
- E-coli contagion
Swimming pool operators are well aware of the hazards that a swimming pool presents to patrons and guests in neighborhood backyards, municipal pools, and at hotel or golf clubs. Typical protective measures include the following:
- Warning signs where no lifeguards are present
- Flotation devices such as circular lifesavers
- Nets and covers for times when a pool is not in use
Nonetheless, accidents do happen — and often an investigation makes it clear that the property owner was negligent. Even if there is no overt negligence, the owner may be responsible for maintaining an "attractive nuisance" — as is often the case when children are able to climb over the fence of a home swimming pool.
