Falls, Brain Injuries And Drowning
Open hazards such as swimming pools can cause serious accidents due to lack of safety measures and supervision or failure to warn of potential dangers. Additional causes of pool accidents may include issues such as:
- Failure to enclose and secure pool area
- No lifeguard on duty
- Lack of life preservers
- Defective drains and suction points, water intake components or jets
- Electrical equipment coming into contact with the water
- Diving boards in pools that are too shallow
Traumatic brain injuries can be caused by a fall, while people who survive a drowning accident may suffer permanent brain damage due to lack of oxygen. Broken bones, back and neck injuries, and spinal cord injuries may occur after slip-and-falls or diving accidents.
