Why is it important to increase traction on surfaces surrounding a swimming pool?
As a swimming pool owner, you’re most likely already cautious 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 encompassing their pool. Statistically, most injuries pertaining to swimming pools don’t even happen in the water. According to the Center for Disease Control, around 150,000 injuries take place each year as a result of slip and fall accidents around the pool. Being that it’s the most dry and hot region in The United States, The Greater Phoenix area has more swimming pools than any other area of the country. Therefore, one can come to determine 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 have the need to seek compensation, you may end up being held accountable for their injuries. Quite a few 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 factors and considerations that an attorney can take while assessing the value of a case.
- Financial Assets– Personal injury attorneys will assess the worth of your finances and material wealth. The more capital that an attorney will 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 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 comune with your insurance provider to determine how much coverage will settle the claim. If you are a business or home owner in Levine with a pool, it is smart to look ahead now and seek any measures that your homeowner insurance company will recommend to settle any injuries or 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 may have to pay for the entirety of their case.
- Steps to take to reduce injury – Any steps you have taken to stop an injury from happening on your property, minimizes the chances of you being held accountable for any slip and fall accidents that do happen on your residence. If you think you don’t need to consider these things simply because only you or your family will be using your swimming pool, please take this time to reconsider. If a person were to trespass onto your property (regardless of legality), and become injured on the deck of your pool, you could be seen as responsible as you had created an unsafe environment in the first place. 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 severe, the victim will try to seek more in compensation. Personal injury attorneys will factor in any of the considerations that you have taken to create a slip-free environment. If you were to instal a fence around your swimming pool that is at least 4 feet tall, 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.
Walkway Management Group of Arizona takes steps to avoid any injury on your property by first determining the level of friction on your deck with ‘The Bot 3000E’. Using this advanced sensor we can find the “slip coefficient of friction” of any given surface. While this term may seem like advanced technobabble, it simply refers to the unit of measure for whatever force it takes to move an object on a flat surface (That being said we may not even need to find the friction of your pool deck if the material is known). Here at Walkway Management Group of Arizona we then will proceed by utilizing a series of great products that maximize the friction of your pool deck. Once we have a grip on how slick the surface of your deck is, we will use our ‘Boost’ products to eliminate the threat of you or your kids falling and getting injured on a slippery pool deck. Taking care of this ahead of time will prevent other people from falling, therefore avoiding a suit to your homeowners insurance. With our ‘Boost’ products and ‘Bot 3000E’ Walkway Management Group of Arizona will help keep your friends and family from being injured on your pool deck. Call for an evaluation today.
