Swimming pools can be a great way to cool off and enjoy the warm weather. However, every year in Ontario, a number of people are seriously injured on or around swimming pools. Common injuries include spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, fractures and even death. In many cases, these injuries are either fully or partly the result of:
- Inadequate supervision
- Inadequate safety procedures
- Improper maintenance
- Improper design
If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury in a swimming pool, you need a lawyer who understands what you are going through, someone who can help you with the medical and legal issues you face. More importantly, you need someone who will work to ensure you receive the care you need, such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, vocational counselling, attendant care, psychological counselling and nursing.
Depending on the severity of your injury, a variety of types of types of financial assistance may be available to you, including,
- Canada Pension Plan disability
- Liability insurance
- Long term disability insurance
