Tampa Swimming Pool and Drowning Accidents

Personal Injury and Wrongful Death Lawyers Serving Tampa

According to statistics published by the federal government, one of the leading causes of death in children aged 1 to 14 is drowning. Fatal drowning accounts for the second largest percentage of unintentional injury-related deaths in this age group. For the age group of 1 to 4, accidental drowning is the biggest cause of injury-related deaths. According to the Florida County Property Appraisers, Florida has the highest rate of drowning fatalities for children 5 and under in the nation.

These alarming statistics point out how dangerous swimming pools can be for families and those who entertain families. Because of its semi-tropical climate, Florida is a state with a large number of residential swimming pools. It is also a state where boating and swimming in oceans and waterways are popular activities.
