In a desert state like Arizona where there is no shortage of swimming pools, drowning and other pool accidents pose a substantial risk. In addition to public pools and backyard pools, a large number of Arizona neighborhoods and apartment complexes have community pools. Owners of private and public pools alike are held to a high standard when it comes to maintaining pool safety. Failure to take precautionary measures can leave pool owners open to liability for pool accidents that occur on their premises.
Leading Causes of Pool Accidents
Some of the more common causes of pool accidents include the following:
- Inadequate signage
- Unqualified life guards
- Inadequate fencing
- Poorly maintained gates and latches
- Failure to supervise
- Poor water clarity
Compensation for Pool Accident Victims and Their Families
Pool accidents can cause serious injuries and even death. For most pool accidents, the worst part is that the tragedy could have been avoided. More often than not, simple precautionary measures could have prevented the accident altogether. And when this is the case, victims and their families should be compensated as fully as possible for their losses.
