The Causes of Swimming Pool Accidents

All it takes is five minutes for an unsupervised child to drown. When kids are out of sight or a parent goes inside for just a few minutes, the eminent dangers grow immensely. It is very important that children do not go unobserved while they are in the swimming pool or hot tub. The number one leading cause of swimming pool accidents is inadequate supervision.

However, there are several other causes that could lead to serious injury or even wrongful death, including:

  • Too many people in the pool at once (overcrowding)
  • Fence around the pool is broken and ineffective
  • Broken or damaged pool ladders (or none at all)
  • Broken pool lights for night swimming
  • Lifeguards with inadequate training
  • Lack of pool safety equipment such as a throwing rope
  • Swimming in cloudy or dark water
  • Defective pool drain or spa drain
  • Lack of safety lines to distinguish the deep end from the shallow end
  • Poor pool maintenance
  • Defective pool equipment

This is why it is so important that swimming pool owners take extra precautions to ensure that the swimming pool equipment is well maintained and that swimmers are kept closely supervised.

Here at the firm we are avid advocates for public safety, especially at public pools. We understand the dangers and we encourage all families to become educated with the possible dangers while visiting the swimming pool. Remember that if a child is submerged under the water for just a few minutes, it could cause serious and traumatic brain damage.
