Pool drain cover accident injuries can have lasting effects on victims and their loved ones. If a child sits on top of a pool drain, the force of the suction can disembowel him or her. Children can also become stuck at the bottom of a pool if they swim down to touch the drain. Sadly, many swimmers play this game, only to realize the danger involved when it is too late. Individuals who find themselves sucked in by the force of a pool drain may have a near-drowning incident, suffering brain damage as a result if without oxygen for too long. In some cases, if others are unaware of their situation or cannot reach trapped individuals in time, fatalities can occur as a result of pool drain cover accidents.
Pool drain cover accidents can be catastrophic. If a loved one survives, families may find themselves facing mounting medical bills and feel they have little recourse.
