The Importance of Supervision at the Pool

Even though an individual can fall victim to a water related accident at any age, in children ages 1-4, drowning is the second leading cause of death. When water related injuries are non-fatal, it can still often lead to serious and long term injuries from deprivation of oxygen, including but not limited to:

  • Brain Damage
  • Loss of Basic Functioning

In addition to oxygen related injuries, swimming pools pose an additional risk for toxic substance and spinal cord injuries when maintenance of chemicals is inadequately maintained or neglected in the pool and/or the surrounding area.

Water related and drowning lawsuits involve the irresponsible behavior of lifeguards and/or anyone else that's in charge of the supervision of anyone that's near the open water. It's this supervision that could avoid potential injury due to the defectiveness of swimming products or premise liability that itself could have been avoided in the first place. Poor and/or improper maintenance of community swimming pools, spas, parks and other public utilities can lead to negligence claims.
