Types of Pool Accident Injuries

Often, pool accidents are not the result of egregious error on the part of a parent or family member. In fact, many pool accident victims are under some sort of supervision at the time of the incident. Whether injuries are sustained as a result of a defective pool gate or a pool drain cover accident, the lives of all involved can change drastically in a matter of moments.

Non-fatal Pool Injuries

Ranging from a traumatic brain injury (TBI), which can be sustained when an individual hits his or her head, to disembowelment, which can occur if an individual sits on top of a pool drain, non-fatal pool accident injuries can have lasting effects for victims and their families. Medical expenses for these individuals can skyrocket, and may remain elevated for the remainder of their lives.

Fatal Pool Injuries

Fatal pool injuries are catastrophic for friends and family members. Many happen when parents or caretakers take their eyes off a child for just a moment. It takes just a moment for small children to wander toward and fall into nearby swimming pools. Other fatalities occur as a result of lifeguard negligence or pool operator negligence.

Frequently Asked Questions

Swimming Pool Drowning FAQs
  • Q:Is a swimming pool an attractive nuisance?

    A:In some jurisdictions, an attractive nuisance is applicable in the law of torts. It refers to an item that is appealing to children which a property owner may be held liable for if it causes injuries to a child. The cutoff point for "child" is not exact. The injured child will be evaluated by the courts. A pool can qualify as an attractive nuisance if a child has easy access to it. If the pool is surrounded by a fence or gate and kept locked, it will most likely not be considered an attractive nuisance.

  • Q:When do most private pools have accidents?

    A:A drowning accident in a swimming pool is most likely to occur in the summer months, usually when caretakers are distracted, and a child gains unsupervised access to the open pool. Family is usually close by during drownings, but it only takes a few minutes of a distracting incident for a drowning to happen. 

  • Q:When can babies swim in a pool?

    A:There is no official age recommendation from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) for babies to enter a pool.  However, most pediatricians advise waiting until the six month mark to take your baby swimming, in order for the baby to have better control over their bodies. It's also good to enforce pool safety protocol as early as possible, discouraging your baby/toddler from entering the water on their own and from running by the pool. The AAP also recommends swimming lessons starting at about one year of age.
