What Are the Statistics on Swimming Accidents in California?
Swimming is a healthy, fun-filled activity that many children enjoy, especially in the sunny state of California. However, the activity can be dangerous, as can be seen in the facts and figures below:
- Drowning is one of the leading cause of death for infants and young children between the ages of 1-4.
- Swimming pools are 14 times more likely to cause the death of a child than an automobile.
- 75 percent of young children who drown are left unsupervised for only five minutes or less.
- For every child who dies in a drowning accident, four more are treated for non-fatal submersion injuries.
These statistics show exactly why constant adult supervision is absolutely necessary when children are swimming or are near a swimming pool.
Who Has Liability in a Los Angeles Swimming Pool Accident?
Property owners are legally responsible for maintaining reasonably safe conditions for all guests on their property. If their property includes a swimming pool, they must establish adequate safety measures to prevent drowning accidents. This may include installing barriers, hiring a lifeguard, restricting children from entering areas with high depth, etc. A pool owner may be held liable for any injuries or fatalities that result from their failure to maintain safe conditions.
The right to seek damages after a swimming pool accident is generally not extended to trespassers. However, if a pool owner is aware that there are frequent trespassers on his/her property, yet hasn’t taken adequate safety measures to ensure that they do not get hurt, then s/he may be liable for any resulting injuries or fatalities.
