Thanks to the glorious weather that Arizonans enjoy for the majority of the year, swimming pools are ever popular spots for people of all ages. However, it is unfortunate that so many accidents take place in public and private swimming pools, especially when they involve children. In Mesa, swimming pool accidents occur just like anywhere else in the nation. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that “Drowning ranks fifth among the leading causes of unintentional injury death in the United States… From 2005-2009, there were an average of 3,533 fatal unintentional drownings (non-boating related) annually – about ten deaths per day.” Factors that typically play a role in swimming pool injuries and fatalities include a lack of responsible supervision, the inability to swim, and slip and fall accidents.
It’s no secret that a child drowning is one of the most visceral fears a parent can imagine, and every parent, relative or guardian will probably have felt fear at some intuitive level in relation to a child drowning, or even imagining how your child themselves might react if they saw a loved one involved in an unfortunate swimming pool accident. However, it’s even worse to find out that a swimmer – either an adult or child – was injured due to a careless or negligent company or individual. If you or your loved ones have recently been involved in a swimming pool accident that has resulted in serious injuries or a fatality, you may be entitled to compensation.
