Charleston Swimming Pool Injury Lawyers
Swimming pools present a risk of drowning and accidental injury. It is the responsibility of a pool owner, property owner, or supervisor to minimize these risks through simple safety protocols, but the prevalence of these parties failing to do so has led to countless injuries and fatalities that could have been prevented. No matter whether the pool is open to the public, part of a hotel or resort, or housed in a private residence, property owners’ duty to follow safety codes and standards is the same. Swimming pools pose the greatest danger to young children, making any failure to safeguard against obvious hazards all the more disturbing.

Causes of Swimming Pool Injuries
Swimming pool injuries extend far beyond broken bones and accidental drowning. The biggest threat to children is becoming trapped underwater from defective pool drains and pressure systems. Something as simple as forgetting to attach a pool drain cover can cause catastrophic internal organ damage for kids trapped by a strong pressure system. Other negligent actions include:
- Failure to warn against diving in shallow waters
- Failure to warn of an absent lifeguard
- Lack of pool drain cover
- Faulty pool draining system
- Failure to repair broken pool hardware, such as ladders and diving boards
- Lack of supervision
- Improper single main drain systems
- Electrical defects
- Failure to post depth markings at various points around the pool
Property owners are held to a standard of care that mandates they are proactive about the safety of their guests. At Clawson and Staubes, LLC: Injury Group, we can prove this standard was breached and caused you undue injury and suffering as a result.
