Phoenix Drowning Accident Attorney
Standing Up for Your Rights After a Tragedy
What is the best way to beat the heat of Phoenix, Arizona? If you ask many locals, it is to spend a day in a swimming pool. Unfortunately, a day in the pool is also one of the most dangerous ways to beat the heat.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Safety Council (NSC), more than 130 accidental drownings happened in Arizona in 202. This number is steady across all years, which shows that swimming pool safety is not improving. Terribly, more than half of those drowning deaths are suffered by children, usually under the age of 5.
The Doan Law Firm wants to stand up for you and the memory of your loved one if a swimming pool drowning accident happened to your family in Phoenix. We can file lawsuits against negligent property owners, homeowners, and business owners who don’t do enough to safeguard children and others from swimming pool dangers.
We have a swimming pool accident hotline: (800) 349-0000. Call it now.
Child Swimming Deaths are Preventable
The high rate of child swimming pool deaths in Phoenix is infuriating because nearly all these incidents should be completely preventable. Negligence contributes to approximately 99% of all fatal swimming pool accidents in Arizona. In other words, if care and attention were increased around swimming pools and by swimming pool owners or managers, then 99% of those fatalities would not happen.
Regulated Arizona Swimming Pool Locations
The state of Arizona regulates swimming pools, both in private and commercial settings. If there is a swimming pool in Phoenix, then there is a law that decides how it must be placed or maintained. When these laws are ignored, deadly swimming pool accidents can and do happen.
Examples of locations with regulated swimming pools in Phoenix are:
- Apartment complexes
- YMCA centers
- Condo complexes
- Health clubs
- Swimming pool water parks
- Public parks
We also can’t overlook resort and hotel swimming pools. Almost every resort in Phoenix has a swimming pool to entertain guests. The problem is that almost every resort with a swimming pool does not have a lifeguard posted at that swimming pool. Even on hot summer days when guests are splashing in the pool and laughing, there is no lifeguard. Many guests feel a false sense of security in a resort swimming pool because they assume that a lifeguard will be there to help in an emergency, but there isn’t one.
Are Residential Swimming Pools in Phoenix Dangerous?
Yes, Phoenix residential swimming pools can be just as dangerous as a public or commercial swimming pool. Many child deaths happen each year in residential swimming pools. Near-drowning accidents happen in backyards, too, and the result is often a child with a permanent disability due to brain damage.
Homeowners must keep their pools secure and prevent children from entering them unattended. If anything happens to a child who wanders onto the property, then an attractive nuisance law might apply. This law makes pool owners liable for any harm suffered by a child in their pool, even if that child was a stranger who did not have permission to be there.
