Staying Safe at the Pool or Lake

As the summer heat continues, many people in the Atlanta area will be enjoying both private and public swimming pools to cool off from the heat. All water based activities carry a risk of injury, and it is important to take all steps possible to reduce this risk. When people sustain injuries in swimming pools or hot tubs, they may be able to recover damages through a Georgia personal injury lawsuit. There are many ways in which negligence may cause a swimming pool injury, and it is important to have the circumstances of your case reviewed by an experienced personal injury attorney. The attorneys of the Law Offices of Shane Smith are dedicated personal injury advocates who understand how to successfully represent clients injured in swimming pool accidents. We strive to get our clients justice, and work tirelessly to obtain the best possible result in each case.

While swimming and other water-based activities are inherently risky, there are concrete steps that swimmers can take to reduce their risk of injury. Some of these steps include the following:

  • Make sure a lifeguard is on duty
  • Use proper floatation devices
  • Do not let children swim unattended
  • Do not swim after drinking alcohol
  • Provide children with swimming lessons
  • Only swim in properly maintained pools
  • Do not swim in unfamiliar lakes or rivers
  • Do not dive into water of unknown depth

Making sure that you are as safe as possible will minimize risk while still allowing you are your loved ones to enjoy the water on a hot summer day.  If the event that an injury does occur, make sure that you seek medical attention as soon as possible.
