Although swimming pools are particularly dangerous for children, anyone can become a victim of a swimming pool accident. Texas has the sixth most swimming pools of any state in the U.S. On a hot Texas day, there is nothing quite as refreshing as a nice dip in a swimming pool. Because so many houses have pools, the likelihood of swimming accidents is high in our state. Homeowners have additional responsibilities they must abide when they decide to purchase a house with a pool or get a pool installed. If you or a loved one has been injured contact a Texas swimming pool accident attorney at The Miller Law Firm for a free case evaluation.
Every year thousands of people die in swimming pools. Additionally, lack of oxygen to the brain can induce a coma, permanent memory loss, loss of motor skills and difficulty with learning new things. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that there are roughly 3,500 accidental drownings in the US every year. Moreover, drowning is the leading cause of death for children ages 1 to 4.
