Why is it important to increase traction on surfaces surrounding a swimming pool?
As someone who owns a swimming pool, you are most likely well aware of the threats that can come with it. Even so, what most people are shocked to discover is just how many injuries can happen on the surfaces enclosing a swimming pool. Statistically, a majority of the injuries related to swimming pools happen outside of the water. According to the CDC, over 150,000 injuries each year occur as a result of a slip and fall around a swimming pool. Being that it’s the hottest urbanized region in The United States, The Greater Phoenix area has significantly more swimming pools than anywhere else in the country, therefore a slip and fall accident is much more likely to take place here.
What can happen if someone gets injured around my pool?
If a person were to be injured around your swimming pool you may be held legally liable for their injuries. Some lawyers will specialize in what’s known as “slip and fall accidents”. These slip and fall attorneys estimate the worth of a victim’s injury before they will even take them on as a client. Here are a few of the factors that a personal injury attorney can take into consideration when estimating the value of a case.
- Your Financial Assets– Personal injury attorneys will try and assess how much money and material capital you own. The more wealth you have, the higher the amount the attorney will try to seek for damages. Regardless of if you have large pools of money, a personal injury lawyer can estimate any other personal effects such as: vehicles, properties, stocks, or any other investments to cover the cost of the claim.
- Insurance– Personal injury attorneys can try to take into consideration how much your insurance will cover the claim. If you happen to be a business or home owner in Maricopa with a pool, it is of great importance to take measures that ensure you have the insurance coverage to settle any potential injuries on your property. If your insurance doesn’t cover the cost of an injury, you very well may end up paying for the total of their personal injuries.
- Steps to take to reduce injury – The more steps you take to reduce chances of an injury taking place on your property, the more improbable it will be that you are held liable for any and all injuries on your property. If you are under the impression that you do not need to take extra safety measures to avoid legal litigation simply because only you or your family use your swimming pool, please reconsider. If an unwelcome person were to trespass on your property and injure themselves on the deck of your swimming pool, and you hadn’t taken steps to prevent the accident, you can still be held accountable for their injuries. Taking the steps to minimize the chance for a slip and fall accident around your pool makes it much less likely for you to be held liable. Furthermore: the worse the injury, the more compensation they will seek. Personal injury attorneys take into consideration any factors that you have taken to try to create a safe environment. If you were to place a fence around your swimming pool that is at least 4 feet tall, and you were to enhance the friction of the surfaces surrounding your pool; you would thereby reduce the risk of being held liable for injuries that occur on your property.
