The majority of public and private swimming pools are treated with chlorine and a variety of other chemicals designed to help destroy any parasites or bacteria that may be lurking around. Even so, there are some parasites that are immune to these chemicals, so a strong possibility still exists that an individual could come down with some type of water illness while swimming. Cryptosporidium is a particularly vicious parasite that is found in contaminated water supplies and can easily cause a person to become seriously ill.
Lack of proper care, negligent pool maintenance and other carelessness with the water supply at apartment pools, school pools, country club pools, water parks and hotels can also put visitors and guests at risk of being exposed to Cryptosporidium or other harmful parasites.
If you believe that you or someone you love has been exposed to the Cryptosporidium parasite, it is urgent that you seek legal counsel at once. In these types of cases, it is rare that only one or two individuals come down with symptoms. If not addressed quickly, an outbreak may occur resulting in dozens or even hundreds of unsuspecting people becoming infected. Call for a free case review: 800-349-0000.
