Did you know one of the leading causes of death in Florida in children ages 1-5 is drowning ?
What South Florida Residents Need to Know About Swimming Pool Accidents and Drowning

With year-round sun and warm temperatures, Florida residents have lots of exposure to swimming pools. Each year thousands of people die as a result of drowning. Swimming pool safety is important. Many times it is a small child who drowns in the swimming pool due to inadequate pool fencing, or a child’s small finger and/or hair gets caught in a pool drain causing catastrophic brain injuries due to lack of oxygen or even death.

Child safety is critical while attending parties and functions at neighbours’ homes when a swimming pool is nearby. It is critical to have a safety fence installed around a pool so as to protect our children, who may wander off for a split second and fall prey to the dangers of an unsecured swimming pool.

Premises liability law covers most swimming pool accidents. Whether the pool is on a friend’s or neighbour’s property or in a public setting such as a school, park, neighbourhood pool area, hotel, or resort, the property owner has a legal duty to maintain safety and health standards at the pool. When these standards are not met, the pool owner may be held liable for an injury or fatality that occurred in or around the pool.

A swimming pool accident may be due to such factors as:
• Inadequate fencing or barriers around a pool
• Poor supervision of children
• Poorly enclosed pool drains
• Too many people or children in the pool
• Slippery swimming pool deck or broken tiles
• Diving board malfunctions
• Cloudy pool water that obscures the lifeguards’ view
• Defective Pool Equipment
