Pool accidents, all too sadly, are a common occurrence here in sunny Southern California. With year-round pool-weather, pool accidents happen all too frequently. While pool accidents are most common in residential pools, pool accidents also occur in hotels, public pools, gyms and other commercial establishments.
There’s a wide range of injuries caused from pool accidents such as broken bones, brain and spinal cord injuries, drownings, near-drownings and death. These may be caused by a slippery deck , diving accidents, defective pool equipment, lack of supervision, dangerous toxins in the water, rough horse-play, faulty or absent child security gates among others. Pool accidents can cause devastating physical and emotional injuries that can be life altering. If the injured party is a child, this can be especially devastating to the child and family having to live with the results of the injuries for the rest of their lives.
