Why is it important to increase traction on surfaces surrounding a swimming pool?
As someone who owns a swimming pool, you are already probably well aware of the dangers that can come with it. Regardless, what most people are stunned to discover is just how many injuries happen on the surfaces enclosing a swimming pool. Statistically, a large mass of the injuries related to swimming pools will happen outside of the water. According to the Center of Disease Control, well above 150,000 injuries each year occur as a result of a slip and fall around swimming pools. Being that it’s the hottest metropolitan region in The United States, The Greater Phoenix area has more swimming pools than anywhere else in the nation, therefore logic dictates that a slip and fall accident is more likely to take place here.
What can happen if someone gets injured around my pool?
If a person were to be injured around your swimming pool and looked to seek compensation you could be held liable for their injuries. Some lawyers specialize in what’s known as “slip and fall accidents”. These slip and fall attorneys estimate the value of a victim’s injury before they even take them on as a client. Here are a couple of the factors that a personal injury attorney can take into consideration when estimating the value of a case.
- Your Financial Assets– Personal injury attorneys can assess how much money and material wealth you own. The more capital you have, the higher the amount the attorney will seek for damages. Regardless of if you have vast pools of money, a personal injury lawyer can estimate any other personal effects such as: vehicles, properties, stocks, or any other investments to cover the cost of the claim.
- Insurance– Personal injury attorneys can also consider how much your insurance will cover the claim. If you are a business or home owner in Fountain Hills with a pool, it is incredibly important to take measures that ensure you have the insurance coverage to settle any injuries that may happen on your property. If your insurance doesn’t cover the cost of an injury, you may possibly end up paying for the total of their personal injuries.
- Steps to take to reduce injury – Any steps you take to reduce chances of an injury happening on your property, reduce the likelihood that you will be held liable for any and all injuries on your property. If you presume that you do not need to take extra safety measures to avoid legal litigation because only you or your family use your swimming pool, you may want to reconsider. If a person you didn’t even know were to trespass on your property and injure themselves on the deck of your swimming pool, and you hadn’t taken any steps to prevent the accident, you would be held accountable for their injuries. Taking the steps to minimize the chance for a slip and fall accident around your pool makes it much less likely for you to be held liable. Additionally: the worse an injury, the more compensation they can try to seek. Personal injury attorneys take into consideration any factors that you have taken to try to create a safe environment. If you were to situate a fence around your swimming pool that is at least 4 feet in height, and you were to improve the friction of the surfaces surrounding your pool; you could thereby reduce the risk of being held liable for any injuries that occur on your property.
