As experienced Phoenix swimming pool accident lawyers, it is very sad to see innocent individuals who are involved in swimming accidents in Arizona. Many times, swimming accidents cause fatal injuries. Other times, people are very seriously injured when involved in this type of accident. We see that the number of swimming accidents increases during the summer, which is no surprise. However, since in Arizona we have such great weather throughout the year, swimming accidents may happen all year through.
Causes of Swimming Pool Accidents
The causes of fatal injuries that we have seen are as follows:
- Negligent supervision at day care;
- Negligent supervision at camp;
- Broken gates;
- Individuals swimming alone;
- Diving into the shallow end; and
- Negligent supervision at homeowner’s home.
Homeowner’s who have little children around should take the time to inspect their pool equipment, the gate to the pool, and the door leading out of the house. In addition, parents should always beware of doggie doors. Many children are curious and will go out the doggy door only to get into the pool and drown. If your child goes to camp, ask lots of questions about the supervision of the children around the pool, and make sure there are lifeguards. Of course, when fatal and horrific accidents happen like these, it is not the parents’ fault. As parents, never second guess yourself.
