Swimming pool injuries
In Spokane and Spokane Valley, the summer heat peaks in July and August. To keep cool, many people take a dip in a river, lake, Aquatic Center, or swimming pool. Unfortunately, according to the CDC, there are over 3,500 swimming deaths each year. This is a terrible statistic, especially since many swimming pool deaths and injuries could have been avoided.
Injuries are often caused by:
- Insufficient lighting
- Inadequate fencing
- Negligent supervision
- Unsafe chemicals
- Lack of warning signs
- Insufficient lifesaving equipment
- Defective drains or other pool parts
Types of swimming injuries include spinal cord injuries, broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, and fatal drownings.
