Louisville Swimming Pool Injuries

As enjoyable as swimming pools can be, they also present a significant risk of injury and death. Property owners must maintain their swimming pools to ensure that guests have a safe and enjoyable experience. If property owners fail to take reasonable measures to satisfy necessary safety standards, they put all guests in harm’s way. When a negligent property owner is responsible for the pain that your family is going through, our Louisville swimming pool attorneys tirelessly advocate for you.

Why Hire a Swimming Pool Injury Lawyer?

Pursuing personal injury or premises liability claims is complex, which is why you need the support of a skilled lawyer. Successfully recovery of a settlement depends on your ability to prove that the property owner was negligent and that their negligence directly resulted in your injuries. Since the burden of proof is on you as the victim, you need a lawyer who will investigate your claim and build an airtight argument on your behalf.

Your lawyer will help you determine if you’re eligible to file a claim and ultimately pursue all liable parties. An attorney will help you through the often tiresome process of gathering and presenting relevant evidence. When you hire an attorney, you have access to their firm’s resources. Our lawyers are equipped to support your case through interviewing witnesses, performing legal research, and consulting with or hiring experts. 

After suffering from swimming pool injuries, your top priority should be recovering your health. Unfortunately, injuries often force victims to deal with a host of other stressors like missing work and scraping money together to pay for medical expenses. Hiring an experienced lawyer allows you to dedicate valuable time to your recovery, rather than your legal affairs.

Swimming Pool Injury Cases We Handle 

Pools present a variety of safety hazards that are exacerbated by improper pool maintenance. The Center for Disease Control reports that there are roughly ten deaths per day due to non-boating related drowning incidents each year in the United States. They have also found that about 20 percent of these fatalities occur with children aged 14 and under and for every death, five more children go to the emergency room. 

Sadly, drowning is a common cause of death in children aged 1 to 4 and the fifth-highest cause of unintentional death for all age groups. Swimming pools present several risks of non-lethal injury as well which include: 

  • Brain damage – When a swimmer is trapped underwater, oxygen deprivation can lead to permanent brain damage and death. 
  • Infections – When poorly cleaned, pools present a risk of infection, especially if swimmers have open wounds. 
  • Cuts – Rough surfaces, broken ladders, and other features can lead to cuts and serious infection.
  • Broken bones – Slippery, uneven surfaces commonly lead to slip and fall accidents which can easily cause fractures and broken bones. 
  • Electrocutions – Poor planning, construction, and open electrical circuits near the pool present lethal threats to guests.

Swimming pools have numerous maintenance requirements that when followed, serve the safety of all pool-goers. When pool operators fail to maintain their property, they act negligently. If a pool owner acts negligently and you are injured at a pool, you may be eligible to file a Kentucky pool injury claim. Our team is ready to help.
