Phoenix Swimming Pool Accident Attorneys

Skilled Residential & Commercial Swimming Pool Accident Help

Swimming pools are a mainstay here in Arizona. According to public property records, six metro Phoenix cities rank highest in frequency of pools in homeowner’s backyards. These features add value to your property and offer a welcome reprieve from Arizona’s famously hot, dry summers. While we love our pools here in Phoenix, they can also pose dangers—especially to young children.

Most of us who are experienced swimmers think a lot about the dangers inherent in swimming pools. The truth is that pools pose unique threats of drowning and other injuries to children and adults alike, especially when they’re not properly contained. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, drowning is the fifth leading cause of death from unintentional injury here in the United States. An estimated 10 people drown each day, and two of them are kids 14 and younger.

Pool-related accidents aren’t always fatal, but injuries often lead to lifelong consequences. Most drowning victims taken to an emergency department require hospitalization or further rehabilitation. Swimming pool-related accidents can result in brain damage, which causes lifelong difficulties in basic functions like motor skills, communication, and memory.

Drowning isn’t the only source of swimming pool–related death and injury. Swimmers can slip and fall on the deck or dive into shallow water, resulting in possible injuries to the spinal cord. When swimming pools aren’t guarded, people are more likely to get injured.

The lawyers at Cullan & Cullan are committed to helping swimming pool injury victims and their loved ones recover damages to help pay for medical care and final expenses and compensate for pain and suffering. While no amount of money will ease the loss of a loved one or relieve the pain of a permanent injury, a personal injury claim can provide your family with the financial means to take care of the victims of a swimming pool accident.

Swimming Pool Accidents in Arizona: A Question of Liability

The first step in securing your swimming pool settlement is determining who is liable for your injuries. Liability can be a confusing concept, and assigning fault in your swimming pool accident case will depend on your unique situation. In general, we look at both product liability and premises liability.

  • Premises liability, also known as “slip and fall” liability, refers to the notion that the owner of a property has a responsibility to reasonably prevent accidents. This extends to those trespassing on a property. For example, a pool must be fenced-in by law, and a cover should be laid out when not in use for prolonged periods.
  • Product liability comes into play when there’s an inherent flaw in the design, distribution, manufacture, or installation of the pool itself. The company who manufactures, installs, and sells a pool to someone must disclose any potential dangers and exercise reasonable care to inform you, the buyer, of any risks.

If a party fails to disclose information, skips steps in installation, or fails to take reasonable precautions, it has committed negligence. “Negligence” is a term that describes a failure to act the way another reasonably careful party would have in the same circumstances. Providing sufficient evidence of negligence is essential in winning a swimming pool injury or wrongful death claim.
