Going to the pool is a fun activity for the whole family. Unfortunately, there is also the risk of serious accidents and injuries at the swimming pool. While many people immediately think of drowning accidents, they do not realize that a more common accident at the pool is a slip and fall. Slip and falls commonly occur at the poolside due to hoses, tools, or other debris left in walkways, from slippery tile or other surfaces, or from greasy sun tan lotion or other substances on the ground. If a pool owner fails to keep a pool safe by attending to such hazards, that owner should be held liable for that negligent behavior. If you have suffered injury at a pool, a Raymond, Georgia slip and fall lawyer can help you recover.
Many people do not realize how potentially serious and long-lasting injuries from a simple slip and fall accident can be. However, these accidents often cause severe injuries, such as the following:
Traumatic brain injury
Sprains, tears, or other soft tissue injuries
Chronic neck and back problems
Deep bruising or lacerations
Some of these injuries can require a significant amount of medical treatment and rehabilitation, and may even have symptoms that last for years. Victims who fall and land on their head or neck may be left with permanent disabilities and may not be able to return to work or enjoy everyday activities again.
