A majority of swimming pool related injuries occur as the result of improperly designed and constructed pools, poor pool maintenance, and lack of pool fences or covering. Every year more than 1,000 children die due to swimming accidents; with approximately 33% of those fatalities taking place in swimming pools. In addition to the deaths of innocent children, thousands of adults die and suffer serious injuries annually in swimming accidents.

Property owners who have swimming pools, such as home, apartment, and hotel owners, are responsible for providing a safe area for adults and children to enjoy. The property owner may be held legally responsible for any injuries  in a swimming pool. If a guest or visitor is injured or drowns in another person's pool, the accident may be considered a premises liability if the accident was due to the negligence of the property owner who failed to provide a safe environment. As the plaintiff in a premises liability case, it is your responsibility to prove that:

The property owner was negligent
The property owner's negligence caused a physical injury
The injury resulted in pain and suffering

Swimming related accidents and near drowning result in devastating consequences, including brain injuries and paralysis. These life-altering injuries require the victim to sustain a variety of medical expenses, such as surgeries, medications, and visits to specialists. In an effort to reduce the risk of swimming related accidents, please obey the following swimming safety tips:

Never swim under the influence of drugs or alcohol
Take a CPR training class
Swim with a partner, never swim alone
Never allow unsupervised children near a swimming pool
Ensure that all adults supervise children while in the pool
Install a fence with a functioning lock around the pool
Cover the pool with a durable cover when not in use
