Swimming Pool Accident Attorney San Antonio Texas
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), thousands of deaths occur each year as a result of swimming pool accidents. Unfortunately, children are the most common victims of swimming pool accidents. While swimming pools can offer a relaxing and fun experience, they can also be the source of serious injuries. Swimming pool accidents generally fall under the premise liability laws. Owners of swimming pools in Texas, whether at a hotel, a resort, a gym, a club, an apartment complex, or a home, have a duty to make sure that the pool and surrounding areas are reasonably safe for adults and children.
Many swimming pool accidents are not caused by the swimmer’s carelessness, rather the swimming pool accident is caused by negligent maintenance or improperly installed or defective pool components. Types of owner negligence that can lead to swimming pool accidents are:
- Swimming pool gates that are not properly latched
- Untrained or negligent lifeguards
- Lack of warning signs around the swimming pool
- Malfunctioning swimming pool lights
- Missing safety equipment
- Lack of safety lines from shallow to deep water
- Improper fencing around the swimming pool
- Failure to conduct routine maintenance and cleanings
- Defective or poorly maintained filtration systems
In addition to wrongful death due to drowning, some of the more common swimming pool accident injuries are:
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
- Spinal cord injuries
- Intestinal injuries
- Respiratory injuries
- Broken bones
