Pool Drain Accident Attorneys
Renowned Lawyers Fighting for Pool Drain Accident Victims Nationwide
Pool drain accidents became such a problem in the United States that a federal law known as the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act (VGBA) was passed in 2007 to prevent them. Virginia Graeme Baker, the granddaughter of former Secretary of State James Baker III, died in 2002 after she was trapped underwater by a spa drain. The VGBA created a national standard for pool and spa drains and required all pools to be retrofitted with drain covers designed to prevent entrapment.

Pool & Spa Drain Accidents
Pools clean themselves through a scheduled circulating system that runs even if there are people swimming. Typically, these systems are harmless to humans if drains have proper safety coverings. Pool drain accidents only occur when a portion of a person’s body creates a seal around an open drain. As required by the VGBA, pool drain covers need to make it difficult for a human body to create a seal around a pool or spa drain.
Children suffer from drowning accidents with the most frequency in the United States. The Centers for Disease Control say that drowning kills more children between the ages between one and four than any other accidental cause of death. The group most vulnerable to a pool drain accident is small children. When pool managers or aquatic centers fail to install proper drain covers, they are breaking the law and putting young lives at risk.
