Going swimming is a popular pastime for adults and children alike. Swimming pools are a common sight in cities, neighborhoods, and even backyards. However, when enjoying a splash in the water on a hot summer afternoon, it is important to remember that, as fun as a pool may be, by its very nature it poses a host of safety hazards. Exercising proper pool safety will help you protect yourself, your children, and everyone else around you.
Make sure everyone in the pool knows how to swim or is accompanied by someone who can. However, keep in mind that being able to swim does NOT guarantee you safety in the pool. It is possible to drown in as little as a few inches of water; never underestimate this danger.
Unfortunately, no amount of caution on your part can ensure that other people will be just as careful. Even the most conscientious swimmer can fall victim to the negligence of another party. If you or someone you love has been hurt in a swimming accident because of another person or company’s negligence, you deserve compensation in a court of law.
