When summer finally arrives in Ontario, people flock to swimming pools to cool off and have fun with friends and family. However, swimming pools also pose serious safety risks. When the standard of safety is not met, swimmers are at risk of injury or drowning.
Common causes of swimming pool accidents include:
- lack of supervision or lifeguards;
- unmarked or improperly marked depths or signs;
- slippery pool decks; and
- broken, missing or poorly maintained equipment.
If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of a swimming pool accident, you may be entitled to compensation for the losses and harm you experienced. This compensation may include damages for pain and suffering, loss of past and future employment income, housekeeping expenses, and past and future health care expenses.
