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.
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.
