Swimming is a fun activity, however the truth is drowning’s or other serious injury resulting from defective pool gates do happen and are quite common. Pool gates are secure barriers around the pool to prevent infants, toddlers, and even adults from falling into the water. They are used to provide control of who has access to the pool and can be a great safety measure for families and facilities to use to help prevent drowning accidents. In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the risk of childhood drowning in a swimming pool is reduced by 83% if the pool has an isolation pool gate.
Filing a Michigan Drowning Accident Lawsuit For A Defective Pool Gate
