Swimming Pool Accidents in Charlotte

North Carolina Personal Injury Attorneys

Swimming has long been one of America's favorite pastimes. Not only is swimming an excellent way to spend time with friends and family or escape the heat, it's an excellent choice for exercise. Unfortunately, wherever there is a large body of water, the potential for drowning is a harsh reality, especially for young children or individuals who cannot swim.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, every day about 10 people die from an unintentional drowning. Of these, 2 of the victims are children age 14 or younger. The CDC reports that drowning is the fifth leading cause of unintentional injury death in the United States.

Below are some facts about drowning released by the CDC:

  • Between 2005 and 2009, there was an average of 3,533 fatal drowning annually in the United States.
  • Approximately 1 in 5 people who die in a drowning is a child age 14 or younger.
  • Nearly 80% of individuals who die from a drowning are male.
  • Children age 1 through 4 have the highest drowning rates.
  • One of the factors that influence drowning is lack of close supervision.

Seeking Compensation after a Swimming Pool Accident

We cannot change the fact that swimming pools are everywhere. They are at hotels, water parks, apartments, athletic clubs, high schools, colleges, country clubs, and many other places that we visit regularly. Unfortunately, there are a number of dangerous situations involving a swimming pool that can lead to a serious injury, a near-drowning, or a fatal drowning.

There are various reasons why someone might drown in a public or a private swimming pool. For adults and children alike the cause may be a defective drain, or for children, lifeguard negligence or a lack of adult supervision may be to blame. In any case, the victims of swimming pool accidents or in the case of someone who drowned, their surviving family members, may be entitled to full compensation for their economic and non-economic damages.
