Types of Swimming Pool Accidents

The Chicago personal injury lawyers at Staver Accident Injury Lawyers, P.C. have represented many clients who have been injured or lost a family member because of another’s carelessness or wrongdoing in a swimming pool setting. Some of the most common swimming pool accidents that arise include:

  • Diving accidents from pools with improper markings or demarcated lines
  • Accidents due to a lifeguard’s negligence
  • Child drowning accidents
  • Slips, trips, and falls

These accidents often lead to serious injuries such as broken bones, back injuries, spinal cord injuries, head injuries, neck injuries and even wrongful death. In most cases, injuries from swimming pool accidents are life-changing and lead to surgeries, specialist visits, medications, the loss of the ability to work, and significant pain and suffering.

Causes of Swimming Pool Accidents

Property owners with swimming pools are responsible for providing a safe swimming area for both children and adults. If the property owner of a swimming pool in a house, condo, apartment, hotel, or any other private or public entity fails to create a safe swimming environment, they can be held legally accountable for any injuries or deaths sustained in the swimming pool.

Some of the most common causes of swimming pool accidents include diving board accidents, inadequate warning signs or fencing, a lack of supervision, a lack of lifeguards or improperly trained lifeguards, no swimming pool cover, a faulty valve, drain, or another swimming pool component and water that is too shallow.
