San Diego Swimming Pool Accidents a Real Concern

As one of the leading group of San Diego personal injury lawyers, we understand the importance of summertime safety. With more than 10-million residential swimming pools across the country, and another 310,000 public pools – swimming pool accidents are inevitable. Unfortunately, some can be fatal. Every day, roughly ten people die from unintentional drowning. Of these, two are children under the age of 15. In fact, officials say drowning ranks 5th among the leading causes of unintentional injury death in the nation.

While swimming is great for exercise and a wonderfully refreshing summer activity, adults need to be mindful when children are around. For infants and toddlers, an adult should be in the water and within arm’s reach, providing “touch supervision.” For older children, an adult should be paying constant attention and free from distractions. The supervising adult must know how to swim.
