Swimming pool season is here! And, unfortunately, accidents can happen.
We have put together a few tips to keep you and your family safe this pool season:
- Be sure the water that you or your loved ones are diving/jumping into to isn’t shallow. Jumping into water that is too shallow can cause spinal cord damage, or even cause paralysis.
- Be vigilant about the skill levels of the swimmers in your group. If you know that a small child isn’t a strong swimmer, stay with the child and keep a watchful eye on him/her.
- If you are with a swimmer that you know isn’t very experienced, put a life vest or floaties on them, though these devices alone aren’t enough. Stay with them!
- Have fun!
If you feel that you have a case related to a swimming injury, please give our offices a call to schedule a free consultation.
