Why is it important to increase traction on surfaces surrounding a swimming pool?
As the owner of a swimming pool, it is likely you are already well aware of the hazards associated with slip and fall accidents around your pool. However, what most people are shocked to find out is just how many injuries occur on the surfaces surrounding their swimming pool. By known statistics, a majority of all injuries related to swimming pools do not take place in the water at all. According to the CDC, around 150,000 injuries each year happen as a result of slip and fall accidents around swimming pools. Seeing that The Greater Phoenix area has significantly more swimming pools than anywhere else in the United States, a slip and fall accident is much more likely to occur in our area.
What can happen if someone gets injured around my pool?
If someone gets injured around your swimming pool you can easily be held legally liable for their injuries. It is a fact that some attorneys may specialize in what’s referred to as “slip and fall accidents”. These slip and fall attorneys will assess the value of a victim’s injury before they even take them on as a client. Here are a few of the factors a personal injury attorney can take into consideration when assessing the value of a case.
- Your Financial Assets– Personal injury attorneys can take into mind how much money and assets you own. The more financial property you have, the higher the amount they can and will seek for damages. Even if you do not have large pools of money, a personal injury lawyer can assess other assets such as: vehicles, properties, stocks, or any other investments to cover the cost of their claim.
- Insurance– Personal injury attorneys can try to identify how much insurance coverage you can receive. If you are a home or business owner in Ahwatukee with a pool it is important to ensure that you have the insurance coverage to completely cover any potential injuries on your property. If your insurance doesn’t cover the cost of an injury, you may very well end up paying the entirety of their personal injuries.
- Steps you have taken to reduce injury – The more steps you take to minimize the chance of an injury happening on your property, the less it is likely it will be for you to be held liable for any injuries on your property. If you have the idea that you do not need to take additional safety measures to avoid litigation because it’s just you or your family that uses your swimming pool, you should reconsider. If a person were to trespass your property illegally and injure themselves around your swimming pool, and you have not taken the responsible steps to prevent the accident, you can be held liable for their injuries. Taking the steps to minimize the possibility of a slip and fall accident around your pool makes you much less likely to be held liable. Furthermore: the worse an injury, the more compensation they can try to seek. Personal injury attorneys can and will take into consideration the actions that you have taken to try to create a secure environment. Building a fence around your swimming pool that is at least 4 feet high and taking measures such as maximizing friction on the surfaces surrounding your pool; you will greatly reduce the risk of being held liable for injuries on your property.
Walkway Management Group of Arizona can provide an evaluation of the friction your pool deck maintains with our advanced technology: the ‘Bot 3000E’.

Once we have assessed the amount of friction the surface of your pool deck keeps, we will be able to guide you on the best treatments and products to use.
