Property owners have a duty to take proper precautions to mitigate the risk of dangerous property hazards. Residential and commercial swimming pool owners that fail to take adequate precautions for the safety of others may be held liable for damages sustained by accident victims.
If you or a loved one has been injured due to the negligence of a swimming pool owner, you have a right to be fully compensated for your injuries. For experienced and aggressive representation in Massachusetts, contact the Milton law firm of Colucci Colucci Marcus & Flavin, PC.
Swimming Pool Accidents Are a Serious Problem
The CDC reports that more than 3000 people died as a result of a drowning accident in 2007. For every person who died as a result of accidental drowning, thousands more were injured as a result of a submersion accident.
Swimming pool accidents are a significant contributing factor to the overall number of accidental drowning and submersion accidents in the United States. Tragically, children are often the victims of swimming pool accidents. Such accidents can cause brain damage and even death.
Common causes of swimming pool injuries include:
- Lack of proper fencing
- Broken gates or latches
- Insufficient safety measures to keep children out of a pool while unattended
- Dangerous chemicals in a pool that cause injuries
