Legal Action May Be Warranted Following A Swimming Pool Accident
Every year, pools in the Kansas City area are the scene of perfectly avoidable tragedies, many of them involving children. Drownings, near-drownings, people slipping and hitting their heads, diving accidents resulting in serious spinal cord injury, people scalded by overheated spas and Jacuzzis, people getting sick because of the chemicals and unsavory biology in the water are many ways to be injured while having fun in the water.
Drowning accidents and swimming injuries occur at every kind of pool, including:
- Apartment buildings
- Resort and hotel pools
- Public pools
- Private clubs
- Man-made pools
- Swimming areas along beaches and creeks
Some of the worst pool injuries occur in private homes. There are even pools on most cruise ships. In many cases, these injuries could have been avoided with greater attention to safety: the presence of lifeguards, access to lifebuoys, drains and valves that don’t suck children into them, security precautions that protect against harm, signs properly warning of the dangers nearby and more. If you’ve been injured by negligence, turn to the premises liability attorney at Mayer & Associates, P.C..
