Broken Bones and Pool Accidents
Swimming pools offer both a place for entertainment and exercise, but when property owners are not careful in maintaining the safety of these pools and their surrounding areas, it can result in swimming pool injuries, such as broken bones. Unfortunately, pool owners all too often allow unsuspecting patrons to sustain broken bones because of their failure to properly care for their pool.
When swimming pool owners are negligent in their maintenance of their property, causing harm to innocent patrons, the victims of such an accident may be able to file a premises liability claim, seeking compensation for their losses. For those patrons suffering from broken bones due to a swimming pool accident in San Diego, the lawyers at Ritter & Associates may be able to help take legal action against the irresponsible party.
Causes of Broken Bones
Broken bones are relatively common injuries, especially in unsafe pool areas. These types of injuries can happen for a number of different reasons, but some of the most common causes of broken bones include:
- Slipping on a wet surface and falling
- Falling over uneven walking surfaces
- Overcrowding of the pool
- A pool equipment malfunction /diving board injury
Any of these conditions could lead to innocent patrons suffering from broken bones, which could subsequently result in expensive medical costs, something which many people have trouble affording.
