Common Types of Swimming Pool Accidents

Accidents that take place in and around swimming pools can happen in the blink of an eye, and they often lead to devastating injuries or even death. These accidents may involve issues such as:

  • Negligent supervision - Public pools are usually required to have lifeguards on duty, and drownings or other accidents may occur if lifeguards are not present, if they are not properly trained, or if they do not have the proper equipment.
  • Defective equipment - Ladders, diving boards, or other equipment used around swimming pools may cause serious injuries if they are not properly installed or maintained. Other equipment, such as pumps, jets, or intake valves, may malfunction and cause people to suffer harm, such as when a person's limbs, hair, or clothing becomes entangled in a pool's drain.
  • Slip and fall injuries - Wet surfaces are a common cause of slip and fall accidents around swimming pools, which can result in broken bones, spinal cord injuries, or traumatic brain injuries. While people using a pool are generally expected to be aware that walking surfaces may become slippery when wet, there are some situations where unreasonable hazards may be present, such as cracks in a concrete patio surrounding a pool that create a dangerous tripping hazard.
  • Chemical imbalance - Swimming pools that are not properly maintained can put people at risk of harm due to exposure to toxic chemicals or other unsafe substances. For example, swimming pool water that does not have the proper pH balance may cause serious irritation to people's eyes and skin, or contagious bacteria may be present in a pool that has not been properly treated.
  • Negligent security - Accidents and injuries may occur in swimming pools because the owner failed to secure the premises. If a homeowner fails to take steps such as installing proper fencing or locks, they may be liable for injuries or drownings that affect children who enter their property to use the pool without supervision.
