Swimming Pool Accidents Can Cause Extremely Serious Injuries

June 13, 2017

Indianapolis Personal Injury Lawyer

With June finally here, many public and private swimming pools in the Indianapolis area have recently opened, providing an excellent way for people in the area to beat the heat and get some exercise. Unfortunately, as with any water-based activity, going to a swimming pool exposes you to a risk of serious injury. Here are some of the most common injuries people sustain in swimming pool accidents.

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries – TBIs are an extremely serious form of injury that disrupts the way a person’s brain functions. They can occur anytime a person hits his or her head, which can occur in a wide variety of swimming pool accidents.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries – Spinal cord injuries, or SCIs, often occur in diving accidents in which a person dives into shallow water and hits the bottom of the pool. In many cases, SCIs leave victim paralyzed below the site of the injury with little hope of regaining movement.
  • Chemical Burns – Swimming pools utilize extremely dangerous chemicals that can cause damage to the human body if they are mishandled, improperly stored, or used in unsafe amounts.
  • Broken Bones – Fractured bones are a common swimming pool accident that can leave victims with long-term medical issues and in pain for months. In many cases, broken bones require intensive medical treatment and leave victims unable to engage in everyday tasks that they took for granted before their accident.


Do You Have a Case?

Not every pool accident that results in injury gives rise to legal action. In order to recover, you need to be able to establish that your accident was the result of someone else’s negligence. Examples of the kinds of negligence that can cause swimming pool accidents include poor pool maintenance, defective pool equipment design or manufacture, hiring unqualified lifeguards, or failing to notify visitors regarding dangerous conditions. Whether or not a particular accident was the result of negligence is a complicated legal question, so you should be certain to have an attorney review your case if you are involved in an accident.
