Fighting for People Injured by Unsafe Pool Management & Negligence

The aquatic center is a popular destination for many families during hot summer days. Aquatic centers often have large lap pools and water recreation areas that are fun for adults and children. Unfortunately, aquatic centers across the country are where people can also suffer serious or fatal injuries. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission discovered that an average of 393 deaths occur every year due to drowning accidents in swimming pools and spas. The unhealthy behaviors of pool goers have put swimmers at a 200 percent higher risk in developing recreational water illnesses in recent years.

Common Aquatic Center Accidents Across the Nation

Aquatic and swimming pool accidents can result in serious and life-threatening injuries that can harm a person for the rest of their life. Unfortunately, many of these accidents occur because aquatic center owners fail to provide visitors with a safe environment. Many are negligent because they disregard safety violations and fail to repair hazards or hire lifeguards.

Common accidents that occur at aquatic centers across the United States include:

  • Slip & Falls: Pool decks and surrounding areas are often wet and increase the risks of a slip and fall accident. If the tile or cement surrounding the pool has cracks, walking around the pool can be hazardous for children and adults like.
  • Diving Board Injuries: According to the Ohio State University Medical School, about 6,500 adolescents go to the emergency room every year for traumatic diving-related injuries.
  • Lack of Supervision: It is vital for aquatic centers to have adequate supervision, especially at peak hours and throughout the summer. A lifeguard needs to have their eyes on the water to identify potential hazards and emergencies. Lifeguard supervision can prevent serious injuries and fatal accidents.
  • Drowning Accidents: Believe it or not, most drowning victims can go completely unnoticed in a crowded environment. Statistics revealed that about 750 children drown every swimming season, and half of these accidents occurred within 25 yards of an adult.
  • Chemical Exposure Injuries: With more than 300 million Americans visiting pools every year, injuries can result due to continuous exposure to disinfectants. Although disinfectants are vital for hygienic pools, chemical agents can react with organic and inorganic material in the water to form disinfection byproducts (DBP).
  • Chlorine Poisoning: This occurs when pool managers add too much chlorine to the water. Chlorine poisoning symptoms include coughing, difficulty breathing, and fluid buildup inside the lungs. Chlorine poisoning is deadly on its own, but can also contribute to a drowning incident.
