Why is it important to increase traction on surfaces surrounding a swimming pool?
As someone who owns a pool, you are likely already well aware of the many harms and dangers that can come with one. Nonetheless, what many people are dismayed to find out is just how many injuries can happen on the low-friction surfaces encompassing a swimming pool. Statistically, a majority of all injuries related to swimming pools happen outside of the water. According to the Center for Disease Control, over 150,000 injuries each year take place as a result of slip and falls around swimming pools. Being that it’s the hottest urban region in The United States, The Greater Phoenix area has many more swimming pools than anywhere else in the nation. Therefore, logic can dictate that the more pools there are, the more a slip and fall accident is likely to take place.
What can happen if someone gets injured around my pool?
If someone were to be injured around your swimming pool and look to seek reimbursement you may be held liable for their injuries. Some lawyers even specialize in what’s known as “slip and fall accidents”. Slip and fall attorneys will sum up the value of a victim’s injury before they even take on their case. Here are a few of the considerations that a personal injury attorney will take while estimating the value of a case.
- Your Financial Assets– Personal injury attorneys will find the value of how much financial and material wealth you own. The more capital that you own, the higher the amount the victim will seek for compensation. Even if you don’t have massive pools of money, a personal injury lawyer can estimate other personal belongings such as: vehicles, properties, stocks, or any other investments to cover the cost of the claim.
- Insurance– Personal injury attorneys will also consider how much coverage your insurance will be able to put towards the claim. If you are a business or home owner in Glendale with a pool, it is indisputably important to take the measures to ensure with your insurance company to know that you have the coverage to settle any injuries that take place on your property. If they refuse to cover the cost of an injury, you may very well end up paying for the sum of their personal injuries.
- Steps to take to reduce injury – Any steps you take to extinguish the chances of an injury occurring on your property, can and will reduce the likelihood of you being held liable for any and all injuries on your residence. If you assume that you wouldn’t need to take safety measures to avoid legal litigation because you think that only you or your family use your swimming pool, you should reconsider. If a person is trespassing on your property, and they were to have injured themselves on the deck of your pool, and you hadn’t taken steps to prevent said accident; you would still be held accountable for their injuries. Regardless of if they were on your property legally or not. Taking steps to reduce the chance for a slip and fall accident around your pool will reduce the likelihood for you to be held liable. Furthermore: the worse an injury, the more compensation in damages a person will try to seek. Personal injury attorneys will take into consideration any and all of the factors that you have taken to create a safe setting. If you were to lay a fence around your swimming pool that is at least 4 feet tall, and you were to maximize the friction of the surfaces surrounding your pool; you could reduce the risk of being held liable for any injuries that occur on your property.
