Swimming Pool Accidents
There is nothing more relaxing than enjoying a swim in a pool on a cruise ship’s deck. But regardless of how relaxing that pool is, or how fun that water park is for your kids, cruise ship swimming pools can cause serious injuries. In fact, swimming pools in general are the second leading cause of death for children under the age of 15. And even when the extreme of a drowning doesn’t occur, near-drowning accidents can leave the victim with severe injuries that can have lasting effects.
Swimming pool accidents on a cruise ship can happen for numerous reasons. Sometimes they are the result of faulty or malfunctioning swimming pool equipment. For example, if a drain is not working properly a child can become trapped and suffer serious injuries to their intestinal and digestive systems. Another leading cause of cruise ship swimming pool accidents is a failure to warn of hazards and risks. For example, most swimming pools are too shallow to dive into. Without proper warning, an individual could dive into the pool and strike their head, causing traumatic brain or spinal cord injuries. These types of injuries are particularly serious as they can cause life-long effects to one’s cognitive abilities, motor skills, and ability to speak. Finally, failure to properly supervise the swimming pool area is another common cause of injuries in cruise ship swimming pools.
When the cruise ship fails to take specific steps to maintain swimming pool equipment and to minimize swimming pool related risks, they may be liable for the harm their negligence caused. If you or a loved one is the victim of a cruise ship swimming pool accident, it is important that you seek the advice of an experience swimming pool accident attorney. An experienced swimming pool accident attorney will be able to evaluate your injuries and claim and make the best argument for why you should be compensated.
