Swimming Pool Accident Attorneys in Scottsdale
When the weather cools down, parents may believe that drowning accidents are less likely to occur. As Scottsdale accident attorneys, we can tell you that there are far too many pool accident drownings, not just during the summer, but also during the year.
When people think that pool accidents are not rampant, it often leads to people being less cautious around pools. It is always imperative that as homeowners and adults that we are extra cautious when young ones are around the pool. Thinking that drownings are decreasing and are not a risk to everyone, may lead to more fatal injuries to young children. There are multiple drowning threats in private homes and at clubs that parents should be aware of year-round and not only when the sun is out and the weather is warm. Below is a list of things that concern us as lawyers and parents and are things that parents should be aware of when their children are around water:
- Indoor swimming pools and hot tubs in homes, hotels, and clubs.
- Bathtubs filled with water that children can fall into.
- Full washing machines that are reachable by little children.
- Ponds that freeze over in backyards or at parks that children play on during winter months.
Parents should remember that at every time of the year, these types of Arizona drowning accidents can occur, especially when children are left alone or unattended. It is always a good idea as well to let caregivers know of your concerns when letting your children be watched by others.
Drowning accidents are common throughout the entire year and it is important that parents know what to look for and how to manage their child's interaction with water to keep them as safe as possible. Here are some things to look out for:
- Avoid leaving a bathtub unattended when water is running or the tub is filled.
- Do not allow children to be unattended at indoor pools or hot tubs, even those pools and other water features meant for children.
- Ensure that your children understand not to play on frozen water features because they could crack.
- Always block off your washing machine so that your small children cannot climb up and inside.
- Talk with the caregiver to make sure they understand the precautions that are necessary to take around water.
