Swimming Pool Accidents in Yuma, AZ
Swimming pools are a fantastic source of fun, especially in the searing heat of southern Arizona. But they can be dangerous, especially if the owners or managers of the property where they are located do not take the proper safety precautions.
No matter how your Yuma swimming pool accident occurred, we can investigate the incident, gather evidence showing who was responsible and pursue them for damages.
Our swimming pool accident lawyers in Yuma, AZ, have helped our clients recover compensation for many types of swimming pool accidents, including the following and more:
Drowning or Near Drowning
If you suffered a near-drowning in a swimming pool, or if someone else you love lost their life in a drowning accident, we will investigate to determine what happened and who was responsible. We will collect evidence showing liability and go after the responsible party or parties.
Per Arizona law § 36-1681, homeowners who have swimming pools on their property must take steps to restrict access so that children and other unauthorized guests cannot wander into the pool area and potentially be injured. Many drownings and near-drownings result from unsupervised swimming excursions in pools that are not properly secured.
Diving Board Accidents
We all remember pulling tricks off the high dive and low dive to impress our friends, but an improperly constructed or installed diving board can be a veritable booby trap, leading to severe bodily injury and even death. We will investigate your diving board accident and determine if someone else’s negligence was a contributing factor.
Collision on Pool Bottom
Many swimming pool injuries occur because the injured party misjudges the depth of the water and collides with the bottom surface. Pool depths should be properly notated, and areas of shallow water should be marked with warning signs.
Slip and Fall on Pool Deck
When swimmers go in and out of the water, the pool deck can quickly become slippery, leading to slip and fall accidents. Property owners and managers have a duty to put safeguards in place to minimize the chance of these injuries occurring.
Contaminated or Unclean Water
When not properly sanitized and chlorinated, swimming pool water can breed contaminants, leading to sickness and disease. If you got sick after swimming in a pool, we can investigate and determine what happened.
