Why is it important to increase traction on surfaces surrounding a swimming pool?
As a swimming pool owner, you most likely are already precocious in regards to the many dangers that can come with owning one. But what some people tend to not consider is just how many injuries can happen on the low-friction areas encircling their pool. Statistically, most injuries pertaining to swimming pools don’t happen in the water at all. According to the CDC, around 150,000 injuries take place each year as a result of slip and fall accidents around the 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, it’s easy to conclude that slip and fall accidents are more likely to happen here than anywhere else.
What can happen if someone gets injured around my pool?
If a person were to be injured around your swimming pool and need to seek compensation, you may end up being to blame for their injuries. Some attorneys will specialize in what are known as “slip and fall accidents”. Slip and fall attorneys will find 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 take while factoring the value of a case.
- Financial Assets– Personal injury attorneys will assess the worth of your finances and material capital. The more wealth and assets an attorney can calculate in your name, the higher the amount a victim can try to seek for compensation. Even if you don’t have large pools of money, a lawyer will appraise 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 correspond with your insurance provider to determine how much coverage will settle the claim. If you are a business or home owner in Lehi with a pool, it’s a smart investment now to look ahead and seek any procedures that your homeowner’s insurance company will recommend to settle any accidents that take place on your property. If your provider finds that the proper measures have not been taken, they may not pay for the injury at all, in that case you can be held responsible for the entirety of a victim’s suit.
Steps to take to reduce injury
Any steps you have taken to stop an injury from happening on your property, minimizes the chance of you being held accountable for any slip and fall accidents that do happen on your residence. If you believe that you have no need to consider these things simply because only you or your family will use your swimming pool, reconsider. If trespassers were to hurt themselves on your property, you could be seen as responsible for creating an unsafe environment in the first place (regardless of the legality of them being here). Taking steps to decrease the chance for a slip and fall accident around your pool will lessen the threat of you being held liable.Consequently: if the injury is bad enough, the victim is within their rights to try and seek more compensation. Personal injury attorneys will have to factor in any of the precautions that you have taken to create a slip-free environment. If you were to build a four foot tall fence around your swimming pool, and increase the friction of your pool deck to a level suitable for a wet environment; you would reduce the risk of being held liable for any injuries that occur on your property.
