Swimming is a great way to beat the summer heat while having fun with friends and family. However, public pools may become hazardous if lifeguards fail to perform their duties or other swimmers refuse to follow safety precautions. Private pools may also be dangerous, if the pool is poorly maintained or if children are not supervised. Constant vigilance at all pools is necessary since children are more susceptible to drowning and other pool-related injuries. If you or your child have been injured in a swimming accident, you may have grounds to file a personal injury claim.
