Swimming pools provide a place of leisure or exercise for swimmers and loungers of all ages. Unfortunately, they are accompanied by a number of inherent dangers. Every year, thousands of people are admitted to the emergency room with injuries associated with a swimming pool, and according to the Center for Disease Control, swimming pool injuries are the fifth leading cause of injury-related deaths in the U.S. Swimming pool owners need to take appropriate precautions to ensure that guests on their property do not suffer needless harm, and they should be held accountable for the failure to do so.

Guests may sustain swimming pool injuries in a number of ways. The most common danger is prolonged submersion, which can result in long-term complications due to brain damage. These instances of near drowning can be facilitated by a lack of a life guard, or the absence of fencing that prevents children from accessing a pool without supervision. Diving board accidents can also cause a person to lose consciousness and experience a similarly grim outcome.
Other injuries include severe head trauma and broken bones, which can occur when swimming pool decks lack the necessary traction to prevent slipping and falling. Finally, open pool drains can entrap swimmers, causing gruesome physical injuries and have the potential to drown a swimmer who cannot escape the pull of a filtration system.
