Why is it important to increase traction on surfaces surrounding a swimming pool?
As the proprietor of a swimming pool, it is likely you are already aware of the threats associated with slip and fall accidents around your pool. However, most people are in awe to find out just how many injuries occur on the surfaces surrounding a swimming pool. See, a vast majority of injuries related to swimming pools do not take place in the water at all. According to the Center of Disease Control, over 150,000 injuries each year happen as a result of slip and fall accidents around swimming pools. Seeing as though The Greater Phoenix area has more swimming pools than anywhere else in the United States, a slip and fall accident is much more likely to occur here than anywhere else.
What can happen if someone gets injured around my pool?
If someone gets injured around your swimming pool you can be held legally liable for their injuries. As a matter of fact, some attorneys can specialize in what’s referred to as “slip and fall accidents.” Slip and fall attorneys assess the value of a victim’s slip and fall injury before they take them on as a client. These are some of the factors personal injury attorneys take into consideration when assessing the value of a case.
- Your Financial Assets– Personal injury attorneys will take into mind how much money and material assets you own. It goes without saying that the more financial assets you have, the higher the amount they can and seek for damages. Even if you do not have large pools of money, a personal injury lawyer can go after other assets such as: vehicles, properties, stocks, or any other investments to cover the cost of their claim.
- Insurance– Personal injury attorneys can try and identify how much insurance coverage you have. If you are a homeowner or business in Tempe with a pool it is important to make sure you have the insurance coverage to address any potential injuries on your property. If your insurance won’t cover the cost of an injury, you may very well end up paying in whole for their personal injuries.
- Steps you have taken to reduce injury – The more steps you take to minimize the chances of injuries on your property, the less likely you can be held liable for any and all injuries on your property. If you have it in mind that you do not need to take additional safety measures to avoid litigation because it’s just you or your family that uses your swimming pool, you should reconsider. If an unknown person or child were to enter your property illegally and become injured around your swimming pool, you could still be held liable for their injuries if you are not taking reasonable and responsible steps to prevent their accidents. Taking the steps to reduce the probability of a slip and fall accident around your pool makes you much less likely to be held liable. Furthermore: the worse an injury, the more compensation they can try to seek. Personal injury attorneys will take into consideration the actions you have taken to try to create a safe environment. Fitting a fence around your swimming pool that is at least 4 feet in height and taking measures such as increasing the friction of surfaces surrounding your pool will greatly reduce the risk of you being held liable for injuries on your property.
