Swimming pools are a common sight in backyards and apartment complex across Fairfield County. While they are associated with fun and good times, serious accidents are not uncommon.

Most of us don't think twice before jumping in a pool or taking a trip to the beach, but Fairfield County swimming accident lawyer Jeremy Vishno knows tragic drowning accidents can happen on any given day. Swimming accidents are among the most serious personal injury accidents that occur in Fairfield County. These accidents often lead to complex wrongful death claims that require the skills of an experienced swimming accident attorney in Fairfield County.

In particular, the risk of drowning is an ever present danger for children who are in or near water. One in five drowning victims is age 14 and under. Among all ages, drowning rakes fifth among the top causes of accidental death across the United States.

People can easily get hurt in slip and fall accidents while walking near a pool, possibly resulting in a traumatic brain injury or paralyzing injury. Because of these serious risks, private swimming pools are required to have fences around them, and public swimming pools must have a certain number of lifeguards on duty.

The following are some other common accidents in pools:

  • Diving accidents resulting in broken necks, spinal cord damage or paralysis
  • Injuries from unsafe pool drains

  • Diving board accidents
