According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), an estimated 5,100 individuals suffered from pool or spa submersion injuries in 2012. While hot tubs and spas are generally seen as inviting places to unwind and relax, these statistics reveal the dangers associated with these bodies of water.

A wide variety of injuries can result from spa or hot tub use. Individuals can slip and fall in and around hot tubs, resulting in bruising and lacerations. Among young children, near-drowning incidents and fatalities are all too common, especially since smaller individuals are more easily trapped by the suction of spa drains. The CPSC recommends residential spa and hot tub owners take safety measures, including fencing in the spa, using a door or gate alarm, and having a proper anti-entrapment drain cover.
While private owners can take these precautions, hot tub users have little control over the safety of public spas, including those at resorts or apartment complexes. From faulty equipment, to inadequate fencing or supervision, a number of factors can result in injury or even death. A skilled drowning lawyer can gather evidence to determine if any of these elements of liability are present.
