Utah Swimming Pool Accident Attorney

There are over 10 million swimming pools in the United States.  According to the Center for Disease Control there are around 3500 swimming pool related deaths each and every year.  When looking at the numbers it is a wonder that the unfortunate number is relatively low.  Perhaps this is due to the safety and caution that is normally taken when people are swimming.  Despite our best intentions accidents and even wrongful death can still occur.  It is our job at swimming pool injury attorneys to help the families and victims recover during these trying times.

What are the common causes of swimming pool accidents?

For most people, it does not take much effort to find a swimming pool for some family fun.  The list goes on from private pools, public pools, water parks, recreation centers, indoor and outdoor pools.  If the swimming pool is open to the general public laws and regulations require that a certain number of lifeguards must be one duty depending on the size of the pool and the number of swimmers.  Whether the pool is public or privately owned, people need to take proper safety precautions and follow Utah’s safety regulations.

Swimming pool accidents are quite common and can be seen in the following forms:

Someone slips while walking outside or around the pool area on the collected water.

A person can be injured while using the diving board.

Someone may suffer from drowning or a near drowning experience.  

Brain injuries that can be caused by hitting their head on a hard surface.

Legal representation for swimming pool injuries.

It is a complicated issue to properly determine who is at fault when a swimming pool incident occurs. Our attorneys use their vast experience to break down the situations of a case to help our clients understand where they are in the eyes of the law. Many times injuries and accidents are the results of the unsafe or neglectful behavior of the pool owner. Examples include a pool that is not properly secured or maintained or if small children in a pool are not being supervised. Many pool accidents happen when a swimmer falls, dives, or jumps into the pool and hits another person. A final major cause of injury or even death can arise when a swimmer becomes entangled or trapped in suction drains or other defective pool materials.

If you or a loved one has been injured and you believe it is the fault of another we strongly urge you to speak with an attorney today. We offer case reviews of swimming pool accidents to help you understand your situation from a legal perspective. If you determine that filing a claim is the best course of action our lawyers can help deal with insurance companies that provide homeowner or liability coverage for the person or company who own the pool where the accident took place.
