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 cognizant of the dangers associated with slip and fall incidents around your swimming pool. However, most people are shocked to find out just how many injuries can occur on the surfaces surrounding a swimming pool. In actuality, a vast majority of injuries related to swimming pools do not take place in the water at all. According to the CDC, over 150,000 injuries each year happen as a result of slip and fall accidents around swimming pools. Seeing as though The Greater Phoenix area has more swimming pools than anywhere else in the United States, slip and fall accidents are much more likely to occur here than anywhere else.
What can happen if someone gets injured around my pool?
If someone is injured around your swimming pool you can be held legally liable for their injuries. Truth be told, some attorneys can specialize in what’s referred to as “slip and fall accidents.” Slip and fall attorneys will assess the value of a victim’s slip and fall injury before they take them on as a client. These are some of the factors a personal injury attorney can take into consideration when assessing the value of a case.
- Your Financial Assets– These personal injury attorneys will take into mind how much money and material wealth you own. It goes without saying that the more financial assets you amass, the higher the amount they will seek for damages. Even if you do not have large pools of money, the personal injury lawyer can go after other assets such as: vehicles, properties, stocks, or any other investments to cover the cost of their claim.
- Insurance– Personal injury attorneys will try to identify the amount of insurance coverage you have. If you are a homeowner or business in Chandler with a swimming pool it is important to make sure you have the insurance coverage to address potential injuries on your property. If your insurance won’t cover the cost of an injury, you may very well end up paying upfront for their personal injuries.
- Steps you have taken to reduce injury – The more steps taken to lessen the chances of injury on your property, the less likely you are to be held liable for any injuries on your property. If you believe you do not need to take additional safety measures to avoid litigation because it’s just your family that uses the pool, reconsider. If an unknown person were to enter your property and become injured around your swimming pool, you could still be held liable for their injuries if you are not taking reasonable steps to prevent accidents. Taking the steps to reduce the possibilities of slip and falls around your pool makes you less likely to be held liable. Furthermore, the worse an injury, the more compensation they can seek. Personal injury attorneys will take into consideration what actions you have ensured to try to create a safe environment. Fitting a fence around your swimming pool that is at least 4 feet in height and taking measures such as increasing friction on surfaces surrounding your pool will greatly reduce the risk of you being held liable for injuries on your property.
Walkway Management Group of Arizona can also assess your pool deck with our advanced technologies such as the ‘Bot 3000E’ to determine what the slip coefficient of friction is on your pool deck surface. While a term like “slip coefficient of friction” may sound vexing, it simply refers to the unit of measurement detailing how much force it takes to move an object on a given surface (However it may not even be a necessity for us to measure things like slip coefficients of friction in order to help you increase the friction on the surfaces around your pool). Walkway Management Group of Arizona utilizes products that are proven to increase the friction of any hard surfaces. Once we have determined the amount of friction the surface of your pool deck holds, we will be able to guide you on the best treatments and products to use.
