Raleigh Drowning Accident Attorney
The CDC reports that more than 3,000 people died as a result of a drowning accident in 2007. Thousands more were injured as a result of a water submersion accident.
One significant cause of drowning and submersion injuries is swimming pool accidents. People who are injured in swimming pool accidents may suffer brain damage, broken bones, other serious injuries or death. Tragically, many swimming pool accident victims are young children.
Common causes of swimming pool accidents include:
- Inadequate fencing
- Broken or unsecured latches
- Improper safety warnings
- Inadequate safety measures to prevent child injuries
If you or a family member has been injured as a result of a swimming pool accident, contact an experienced personal injury lawyer at the Law Offices of Wade E. Byrd. Located in Fayetteville, North Carolina, we handle commercial and residential swimming pool accident claims.
Pool Accidents Caused by Property Owner Negligence
Swimming pool accidents often occur because property owners have simply failed to take adequate precautions. Many swimming pool accidents occur because children gain access to a swimming pool when they are not being properly monitored by an adult. Pool owners should adequately safeguard their property to prevent children from gaining access to their pool while unattended. Fence or gate latches that are broken or unsecured are a common cause of swimming pool accidents.
