Defective Pool Gates
Defective Pool Gates & Drowning Accidents
When a public or private pool has a defective gate, allowing children to enter the premises and have access to the pool, tragic and often fatal accidents occur far too often. Children are naturally curious and if there is a pool nearby, they may try to get close to it or have the idea that it would be fun to swim. Some of these children are far too young to be near any body of water without supervision, and can fall into the pool and be unable to get out, and drown. Even when the child survives the accident, there is often serious brain damage that is a result of the lack of oxygen they suffered while under water. Any case including a defective pool gate that resulted in an injury to another has a possible legal case that can be brought against the owner or manager of the property, or both.
