Why is it important to increase traction on surfaces surrounding a swimming pool?
As a person with a pool, you are likely already aware of the many harms that could come with one. However, what many people are startled to find is just how many injuries can happen on the low-friction surfaces surrounding their swimming pool. Statistically, nearly all injuries related to swimming pools happen outside of the water. According to the CDC, 150,000 injuries each year take place as a result of a slip and fall around swimming pools. Being that it’s the hottest lived-in region in The United States, The Greater Phoenix area has more swimming pools than any other place in the nation. Therefore, logic shows that the more pools an area has, the more slip and fall accidents 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 look to seek compensation you may be held liable for their injuries. Some lawyers specialize in a term known in the industry as “slip and fall accidents”. Slip and fall attorneys will appraise the value 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 estimating the value of a case.
- Your Financial Assets– Personal injury attorneys will find the value of your fiscal and material wealth The more capital that you own, the higher the amount the victim will seek to recompense. Even if you don’t have large pools of money, a personal injury lawyer can estimate other belongings such as: vehicles, properties, stocks, or any other investments to cover the cost of the claim.
- Insurance– Personal injury attorneys will also consider how much coverage your insurance will be able to put towards the claim. If you are a business or home owner in Peoria with a pool, it is indisputably important to take the measures to ensure with your insurance company to know that you have the coverage to settle any injuries that take place on your property. If they refuse to cover the cost of an injury, you may very well end up paying for the sum of their personal injuries.
- Steps to take to reduce injury – Any steps you take to prevent the chances of an injury occurring on your property, will reduce the likelihood of you being held liable for any and all injuries on your residence. If you assume that you don’t need to take the proper safety measures to avoid legal litigation because you feel that only your family would use your swimming pool, reconsider. If a person trespasses on your property, and were to injure themselves on the deck of your pool, and you had not taken steps to prevent any accidents; you would still be held accountable for their injuries. Even if they were on your property illegally. Taking steps to minimize chances for a slip and fall accident around your pool will reduce the likelihood for you to be held liable. Furthermore: the more severe the injury, the more compensation in damages a person can seek. Personal injury attorneys take into consideration any and all of the factors that you have taken to create a secure area. If you were to install a fence around your swimming pool that is at least 4 feet tall, and maximize the friction of surfaces surrounding your pool; you would reduce the risk of being held liable for any injuries that occur on your property.
Here at Walkway Management Group of Arizona we will also evaluate the friction of your deck with ‘The Bot 3000E’. Using this high-powered technology we can find the “slip coefficient of friction” of your surfaces. A term like “slip coefficient of friction” may seem overly mathematical, but it simply refers to a unit of measure for whatever the force is that it will take to move an object on a flat surface (However there may not even be a need to measure this to determine the amount of friction on the surface around your pool). Walkway Management Group of Arizona will then utilize our many great products that can increase the friction of your pool deck. Once we have the friction that the surface of your deck stays at, we will treat your pool deck with the correct ‘Boost’ products, remedying the possibility of you or your kids falling and getting injured on a slippery pool deck. Alleviating this can also prevent any other persons from falling, therefore avoiding a suit to your homeowners insurance.
