Phoenix Swimming Pool Diving Injury Lawyers

Diving Injuries in a Swimming Pool Accident

With all the swimming pools in the Phoenix area, safety is always a concern for swimmers, parents, and pool owners. One major cause of swimming pool injuries has always been diving, whether from a diving platform, a diving board, or from the side of the pool. Diving accidents often cause head, neck, and back injuries, and have been known to result in full or partial paralysis and drowning deaths.

Statistics show that approximately 65,000 adolescents per year visit an emergency room each year due to diving accidents. Statistics also show that 80 percent of diving injuries occur at depths of four feet (1.2 meters) or less. For insurance reasons, many pool owners and municipalities have opted not to have diving boards at their pools. Even though only about 10 percent of swimming pool diving accidents occur when using a diving board, the injuries incurred tend to be more severe.

If you or a family member has been injured in a swimming pool diving accident, the owner or party in charge of that pool may be liable for any injuries suffered. To find out if you have grounds for a premises liability claim, you'll want to consult an experienced Phoenix swimming pool diving injury attorney. The Husband & Wife Law Team at the Breyer Law Offices, P.C. has been representing Arizona injury victims for 20 years. Call us today at (602) 267-1280 for a free consultation.

Compensation for Wrongful Death

In the event that a loved one has died in a swimming pool diving accident, you and your family may be able to pursue compensation for:

  • Funeral and burial expenses

Proving Owner or Caretaker Liability

In Arizona, a pool's owner or a party responsible for a pool has to keep the pool environment reasonably safe. This involves meeting certain safety requirements:

  • Ground level pools must be surrounded by a fence with a self latching gate
  • The pool owner must provide supervision
  • The pool owner must have appropriate life saving equipment at the pool and have sufficient insurance
