While pools can be an excellent source of fun for family gatherings and neighborhood barbecues, they can also be dangerous. According to the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 10 people die from unintentional drowning every day. Hundreds more are harmed or killed by the many dangers that pools present. If you or someone you love has been injured in a swimming pool, it may be possible to recover compensation. In many cases, the owner of the pool in question can be held liable for your injuries.

Both inflatable and in-ground pools present countless dangers that can result in sickness, injury, and even death. Those who are most at risk for swimming pool injuries are children. Most are new to swimming, and it only takes a few minutes of inadequate supervision for something to go horribly wrong. The CDC claims that one in five drowning victims are children under the age of 14. Additional pool dangers that affect both adults and children include, but are not limited to:
There are many defects that are commonly seen in pools. According to the Regulation & Inspection branch of the CDC, one of the most common pool defects is the lack of a gate or fence. When pools are not properly surrounded, children can fall in when they are not being supervised. Another frequently seen pool defect is related to the pump. In most cases, the pool pump prevents the build-up of dirt and bacteria. It also ensures cleanliness. A broken pump can cause people to ingest toxic substances.
Many people think that simply being injured on another person’s property is grounds for a civil lawsuit. However, there are a number of conditions that must be met in order to hold someone liable for a death or injury. According to Alabama law, premises liability cases involve an injury that occurs on another person’s property, but only when it is caused by the negligence of the property owner. When filing this type of personal injury lawsuit, it must be proven that the property owner was aware or should have been aware of a defect or an unsafe condition that contributed to the injury in question.
