Why is it important to increase traction on surfaces surrounding a swimming pool?
As the owner of a pool, you’re probably already vigilant in regards to the many dangers that can come with owning one. But what people often don’t consider is just how many injuries can happen on the low-friction areas enclosing their pool. Statistically, a large majority of injuries pertaining to swimming pools don’t even happen in the water. According to the CDC, about 150,000 injuries take place each year as a result of slip and fall accidents around a swimming pool. Being that it’s the hottest region in The United States, The Greater Phoenix area has more swimming pools than any other area of the country. Therefore, one can notice that the more swimming pools a location has, the more a slip and fall accident will likely take place.
What can happen if someone gets injured around my pool?
If a person were to be injured around your swimming pool and decide to seek compensation, you may end up being held accountable for their injuries. Some lawyers will specialize in “slip and fall accidents”. Slip and fall attorneys will establish the worth of a victim’s injury well before they take them on as a client. Here are a few of the many considerations that an attorney can address while assessing the value of a case.
- Your Financial Assets– Personal injury attorneys will determine the worth of your finances and material wealth. The more assets that an attorney will accumulate in your name, the higher the amount a victim can try to seek for compensation. Regardless of if you have large pools of money, a lawyer can look for value through other belongings such as: vehicles, properties, stocks, or any other investments to cover the cost of the claim.
- Insurance– Personal injury attorneys will also directly discuss with your insurance provider to know how much coverage will settle the claim. If you are a business or home owner in Goodyear with a pool, it is good practice to look ahead to seek any measures that your homeowner insurance company will provide to settle any injuries or accidents that take place on your property. If your provider thinks that the proper measures have not been taken they may not pay for the injury at all, in that case you may have to pay for the total sum of their case.
- Steps to take to reduce injury – Any steps you have taken to prohibit an injury from happening on your property, minimizes the chance of you being held accountable for any injuries that do happen on your residence. If you think that you don’t need to take this into consideration simply because only you or your family will be using your swimming pool, reconsider. If an unknown person were to trespass onto your property (regardless of legality), and become injured on the deck of your pool, you would still be held responsible for their injuries had you not taken proper steps to avoid the accident. Courts can easily claim that you are at fault for creating a hazardous environment. Taking steps to decrease the chance for a slip and fall accident around your pool will lessen any threats of you being held liable. Consequently: the more the worse the injury, the more compensation the victim will try to seek. Personal injury attorneys will calculate any of the factors that you have taken to create a slip-free area. If you were to settle a fence around your swimming pool that is at least 4 feet tall, and maximize the friction of surfaces surrounding your pool to a safe degree; you would reduce the risk of being held liable for any injuries that occur on your property.
