Common Diving Board Injuries

It is important for a diver to know his or her limits before attempting a dive, jump, or somersault off a diving board. Injuries from a diving board can be severe and even life threatening, and unfortunately, even safe divers can experience these injuries due to the negligence of another party. Common diving board injuries include:

  • Spinal cord injuries that happen when the diver falls on his or her back
  • Head injuries and spinal cord injuries that happen when the diver hits his or her head directly on the board or the bottom of the pool
  • Lower body injuries that occur when a diver slips and lands on his or her legs
  • Collisions with other swimmers in the pool

Spinal cord and head injuries can be severe, and may happen even when a diver is doing everything possible to remain safe. If you have suffered a diving board injury because of a poorly maintained or supervised swimming pool or diving board, you may be eligible for compensation from the party responsible for your losses.
