Oklahoma Pool Drain Injury Lawyers

The swimming pool is supposed to be a place where families can relax and escape the summer heat. Whether you are at a community or private pool, an afternoon of fun can take a drastic turn for the worst if the swimming pool is unsafe or poorly maintained. In fact, some of the most common and serious injuries occur when pool owners fail to adhere to recommended or required safety regulations and keep their pools safe.

One of the biggest threats at a swimming pool is the drain, and even though there are federal laws requiring pool owners to cover their drains, many do not comply and put swimmers in harm’s way. If you or a loved one has been injured due to a negligent pool owner, contact the Oklahoma City pool drain injury lawyers of the Abel Law Firm at (405) 239-7046.

Pool Drain Injuries

Pool drains are extremely strong and could be a threat to even experienced swimmers. Uncovered pool drains could cause a variety of problems, including the following:

  • Getting extremities such as arms and legs sucked against the drains, causing drowning or near drowning accidents. Children are at great risk for this because they often are not strong enough to swim away.
  • Swimmers can get their hair pulled down or caught in the drain, causing drowning or near-drowning injuries.
  • In some cases, pool drains can suck out a person’s internal organs.

All of these injuries can be life-threatening and can be easily avoided if pool owners are responsible for their property.
