Can I Sue if I’m Injured in a Swimming Pool?

Warmer months are coming, and this means it’s time to enjoy outdoor activities. When most of us think of our favorite outdoor activities during the spring and summer, the thought of spending a lazy afternoon in a swimming pool is usually one of the first that come to mind. Unfortunately, pools can pose a dangerous risk of serious injury. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there were an average of 3,533 fatal drownings between 2005 and 2009. However, drowning is not the only injury that can be suffered in a pool. Many other serious injuries are also possible.

If you or a loved one was injured in a swimming pool due to someone else’s negligence, you may be able to receive the compensation you deserve by filing a Georgia personal injury claim. The best way to get the recovery needed for your medical bills and other expenses is to schedule a consultation with an experienced Peachtree City personal injury attorney at the Law Offices of Shane Smith as soon as possible.

What are some Common Causes of Swimming Pool-Related Accidents?

Swimming pools are meant to be enjoyable and a great place for fun and relaxation for the entire family. Unfortunately, they can also be dangerous because of the open water, concrete, slippery surfaces, and equipment they contain. Some common causes of swimming pool injuries are:

  • Accidental drowning – including small, shallow “kiddie” pools
  • Suffocation from pool covers
  • Broken bones and other serious injuries from slip-and-falls
  • Strangulation from pool-cleaning equipment
  • Traumatic brain injuries and spinal injuries from diving
  • Electrocution from faulty equipment or lighting

 

An experienced personal injury attorney from the Law Offices of Shane Smith can help analyze your case and see if you deserve compensation for a serious injury suffered by you or your loved one in a swimming pool-related accident.
