Hot Tub Accident FAQ

What causes most hot tub injuries?

Hot tubs present varied hazards. They have slippery surfaces, heat, and water all in one place, which opens the door to injury in the presence of carelessness, negligence, or defective products. Slip and fall accidents are the most common cause of hot tub injuries (accounting for about half of injuries), followed by heat overexposure (accounting for about 10% of accidents), according to a study by the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System. Near drowning occurred in about 2.5% of hot tub accidents.

What should I do after a hot tub accident?

Whether you were injured at a hot tub in your own home, at a spa, at a resort, or in a hotel, you should consider your right to financial compensation. The manufacturer of the hot tub could be accountable, or the owner of the property where it was located. By investigating the circumstances that led to the incident and your injuries, a competent legal team can determine who’s responsible. So, seek medical care, gather any evidence and documents that you can, and contact an attorney to discuss moving forward with a case against the person or company that’s responsible for what you’ve experienced.

Why are children the most frequent victims of hot tub accidents?

Young children have small bodies that do not tolerate heat as well as adults. Their smaller stature also means that they cannot stand easily in a hot tub. So, children are at a much higher risk of drowning or suffering heat-related injuries in hot tubs and spas. According to the Consumer Products Safety Commission, since 1990, nearly 90% of fatal hot tub accidents involved children under the age of 3. Children should be closely supervised and property owners should take care to ensure that children cannot reach unsafe areas like swimming pools, spas, and hot tubs on their own.

How to Determine Fault for a Hot Tub or Spa Accident

Hot tubs have similar dangers to swimming pools, so they can still cause drowning and near-drowning accidents. Excessively hot spas can cause burn injuries and contribute to overall harm. The steam and high temperatures of a hot tub also make them far more likely to harbor harmful or dangerous bacteria. Though largely safe for adults, children can still fall into hot tubs and drown if there’s no one supervising them. For that reason, it is vital for hot tub owners or spa managers to frequently monitor the conditions of their hot tubs.

If an owner or operator failed to maintain the hot tub, they can and should be held liable for their negligence. Some of the steps they should take include fencing the hot tub to prevent small children from entering without supervision, or failing to add warning signs about the dangers of the hot tub. Whether the hot tub or spa is owned by an apartment complex, homeowners association, country club, or hotel, our firm can help you hold the parties responsible for the injuries you sustained.
