When A Day At The Pool Turns Tragic
Whether private or public, swimming pools can be a genuine source of danger, especially for small children. Even in properly-maintained pools, the risk of drowning or near-drowning exists. If pools are not well maintained — if they are missing appropriate signage, have unrepaired damage or poor supervision — they become even more dangerous.

The Causes Of Swimming Pool Injuries
Swimming pools may be an opportunity for fun, but through the negligence of another person, a company or a manufacturer, they can also be dangerous. The causes of injuries at swimming pools are numerous and can include:
- Wet poolside surfaces
- Missing emergency equipment or warning signs
- Improper water levels or chemical composition
- Damaged or defective ladders, steps or pool lights
- Wet environments where electricity can easily cause electrocution
- Water that can cause near-drowning or drowning, especially if lifeguards are negligent
