Why is it important to increase traction on surfaces surrounding a swimming pool?
As someone who owns a swimming pool, you most likely are well aware of the perils that can come with it. However, what most people are amazed to find out is just how many injuries can happen on the surfaces encompassing a swimming pool. Statistically, a huge amount of injuries related to swimming pools don’t even happen in the water. According to the Center of Disease Control, over 150,000 injuries each year will happen as a result of a slip and fall around a swimming pool. Being that it’s the single hottest area in The United States, The Greater Phoenix area has considerably more swimming pools than anywhere else in the country, due to this fact a slip and fall accident is significantly more likely to take place here.
What can happen if someone gets injured around my pool?
If an individual were to become injured around your swimming pool you may be held legally liable for their injuries. Some attorneys will even specialize in what’s known as “slip and fall accidents”. These slip and fall attorneys will evaluate the worth of a victim’s injury before they even take them on as a client. Here are some 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 wealth you own. The more financial and material wealth you have, the higher the amount the attorney can try to seek for damages. Regardless of if you have pools of money, a personal injury lawyer can estimate any other possessions 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 insurance will cover your claim. If you happen to be a home or business owner in San Tan Valley with a pool, it is of importance to take the measures to ensure that 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 may end up paying for the total of their personal injuries.
- Steps to take to reduce injury – The more steps you take to decrease the chance of an injury happening on your property, the more improbable it will become for you to be held liable for any and all injuries on your land. If you think 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, reconsider. If an unknown individual were to trespass into your property illegally and injure themselves on the surface of your swimming pool, and you hadn’t taken steps to prevent said accident, you would 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 significantly less likely for you to be held liable. Moreso: the worse the injury, the more compensation they can seek. Personal injury attorneys will take into consideration any factors that you have taken to try to create a secure or safe environment. If you were to plant a fence around your swimming pool that is at least 4 feet tall, and you were to maximize the friction of the surfaces surrounding your pool; you would greatly reduce the risk of being held liable for injuries that occur on your property.
