Why is it important to increase traction on surfaces surrounding a swimming pool?
As the proprietor of a pool, you are likely cognizant of the many hazards that can come with one. However, what many people are shocked or startled to find is just how many injuries can happen on the many low-friction surfaces surrounding their pool. Statistically, a majority of injuries related to swimming pools happen outside of the water. According to the Center of Disease Control, 150,000 injuries take place each year as a result of a slip and fall around swimming pools. Being that it’s the hottest urban region in The United States, The Greater Phoenix area has more swimming pools than any other in the nation. Therefore, one can determine that the more swimming pools an area 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 take actions seeking compensation you may be held liable for their injuries. There even exist lawyers who specialize in the industry of “slip and fall accidents”. Slip and fall attorneys will evaluate the worth of a victim’s injury before they even take on their case. Here are a few factors that a personal injury attorney will take while assessing the value of a case.
- Your Financial Assets– Personal injury attorneys will find the value of your fiscal and material wealth. So the more capital that you have acquired, the higher the amount the victim will seek to compensate. Even if you don’t have large sums of money, a personal injury lawyer can estimate other goods or belongings such as: vehicles, properties, stocks, or any other investments to cover the cost of the claim.
- Insurance– Personal injury attorneys will also take into mind how much coverage your insurance will be able to put towards a given claim. If you are a business or home owner in Litchfield Park with a pool, it is important to take any measure to ensure that your insurance company will have the coverage to settle any injuries or accidents that take place on your property. If they decide the proper actions have not been taken and won’t cover the cost of an injury, you may end up paying for the total sum of their injuries.
- Steps to take to reduce injury – Any steps that you have taken to prevent the chance of an injury occurring on your property, minimize the likeliness of you being held accountable for any and all injuries on your residence. If you think that you don’t need to take the proper safety measures to avoid any legal litigation because you believe that only your family would use your swimming pool, please reconsider. If an unknown figure were to trespass on your property, and injure themselves on the deck of your pool, you would still be held accountable for their injuries had you not taken the proper steps to avoid an accident. Even if they were on your property illegally, the courts could claim you at fault for creating a hazardous environment. Taking steps to reduce the chance for a slip and fall accident around your pool will lessen any likelihood for you to be held liable. Furthermore: the more severe the injury, the more compensation in damages the victim of an injury can seek. Personal injury attorneys take into mind any of the factors that you have taken to create a slip-free area. If you were to install a fence around your swimming pool that is at least 4 feet tall, and bring the friction of surfaces surrounding your pool to a safe level; you would reduce the risk of being held liable for any injuries that occur on your property.
Walkway Management Group of Arizona also evaluates the friction of your deck with or ‘The Bot 3000E’. Using this advanced sensor we can find the “slip coefficient of friction” of your surfaces. While this term may seem overly obtuse, it is simply a unit of measure for whatever force it will take to move an object on a flat surface (That being said it may not even be needed to determine the amount of friction on the surface around your pool). Here at Walkway Management Group of Arizona we then utilize our many great products that maximize the friction of your pool deck. Once we know how slick the surface of your deck is, we treat your pool deck with ‘Boost’ products, remedying the thought of you or your kids falling and getting injured on a slippery pool deck.
