It seems the weather in San Bernardino County gets hotter every year. No wonder most homes have a backyard swimming pool to keep families cool and comfortable during the summer months.
Are you aware that every day people die from drowning and this number includes children under the age of 14? Most children drown in a backyard swimming pool, whether it is their own or a neighbor's. More children die in swimming pools than in automobile accidents.
Pool owners need to take precautions to prevent swimming pool accidents. It is very important to have a secure fence around the pool that cannot be opened by a young child. The most important step in preventing accidents is to always supervise the pool when in use, especially when children are using it. Flotation devices are not a substitute for adult supervision.
If your family member has been in a swimming pool accident, contact an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney - you might have a case against a negligent person who failed to properly supervise his or her pool.
