Swimming Pool Accidents
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention lists drowning as the fifth leading cause of accidental injury death in America. On average, almost 400 children drown in pools each year and 5,000 more are injured.
Swimming pool accidents can result in drowning, brain damage, electrocution, lacerations, neck, spinal cord, head, and various other injuries because of defects within the swimming pool or its parts.
Compensation for these tragic injuries may be available through a product liability claim against the manufacturer, designer, retailer, or installer of the pool. A product liability claim for a swimming pool defect will usually allege a defect in the design of the product, defect in the manufacturing process, or a failure to warn of dangers associated with use of the pool. Common swimming pool defects include:
- Diving Board, Ladder, & Slide Defects
- Pool Filter Defects
- Pump and Drainage Defects
