According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, accidental drowning is among the leading causes of death for children under the age of 14. While many parents believe their children will never be harmed in a drowning accident, a simple day at the swimming pool can turn into a nightmare in a matter of moments.

Many devastating drowning accidents could have been prevented if pool owners were more responsible and had taken care to ensure the safety of their guests. If someone you love has been involved in a drowning accident on someone else’s property, it is important that you take appropriate legal action.

Drowning Hazards

Even if your child can swim, drowning accidents can occur suddenly and unexpectedly. Many of these incidents can be avoided if a pool is properly maintained and is in accordance with the law. Some of the most common causes of drowning accidents in swimming pools include:

  • Failure to install safety gates around the pool
  • Lack of flotation devices or safety equipment
  • Lack of supervision
  • Lack of ladders around the pool
  • Unclear depth markers
  • Malfunctioning drains

After a near-drowning, your child could suffer severe brain damage, respiratory damage, and develop long-term disabilities. And in some cases, drowning accidents can be fatal. If someone you love has suffered harm due to the negligence of a property owner, it is important to hold the responsible party accountable under the law.
