What Are The Most Common Types Of Pool Accidents?
There are many causes of pool accidents beyond negligent or nonexistent supervision, and most pertain to defective safety and other equipment. They include:
- Broken or missing drain covers designed to prevent children from being trapped under water
- Broken or missing fencing
- Damage that prevents fence gates from closing and locking automatically, allowing small children to wander into pool areas unsupervised
While the federal Pool and Spa Safety Act addresses drain covers in residential pools, many other safety regulations are addressed by local laws. This is why it is important to have a law firm with experience in pool regulations look closely at your case to determine whether you can hold the owner or operator of a pool responsible for failing to maintain minimum safety standards.
