Swimming pool accidents can happen in winter too
With snow and cold temperatures quickly approaching, many Chicagoans are inclined to travel to warmer cities and states. Although summer is long gone for Chicago, the dangers of swimming pools aren’t. Swimming pool accidents are very common, and contrary to popular belief, they are not limited to water parks. Swimming pool accidents often time take place in hotels and private pools as well. A person may be injured in a swimming pool accident when safety hazards obstruct or hurt a swimmer, if a gate is broken, or if a swimmer enters an area that should have been restricted. Swimming pool accidents can lead to serious injury such as brain damage, spinal cord injury, fractures, and in severe cases, drowning. If you or a loved one have been injured in a swimming pool accident as a result of an individual’s supervision and maintenance negligence, you may be entitled to compensation.
