What You Should Know About Swimming Pool Accidents in New York City

With the Fourth of July right around the corner, as well as almost an entire season of summer ahead of us, many people throughout New York City are excited to finally begin using swimming pools once again. Unfortunately, when swimming pools are poorly maintained, serious accidents can happen as a result and if you have been injured in one, you should strongly consider speaking with an experienced New York City slip and fall accident attorney. Here are some of the questions you may have about swimming pool accidents and the legal process ahead:

How can a pool owner avoid swimming pool accidents?

Through proper safety procedures, swimming pools can be made safe for all who use them. Some of the various things that pool owners should consider before inviting others over are as follows:

  • Put up wet floor signs where necessary
  • Ensure that all no-diving zones are clearly labeled
  • Ensure that all barriers, alarms, and fences are installed where necessary
  • Never leave small children alone in the pool
  • Ensure those who cannot stand are equipped with flotation devices
  • Never let anyone bring electronics of any sort into the pool
  • Do not allow swimming while under the influence

These are just some of the actions all pool owners should take to ensure the safety of all guests. Any other safety hazard should be taken care of prior to inviting guests over.

What to do After a Swimming Pool Accident

Unfortunately, there are times where property owners fail to take the necessary safety precautions before having guests over to swim. Oftentimes, when this happens, serious accidents can occur as a result. When someone is injured in a swimming pool accident, they may not be able to do anything other than awaiting the arrival of an ambulance, however, if you are injured in such an accident and you are capable of documenting the incident, you should do so. This means taking pictures of the accident/unsafe conditions that caused the accident, obtaining witness contact information, seeking medical treatment, and retaining the services of a knowledgeable New York City slip and fall accident attorney.
