In Texas, because of the extreme heat that we experience several months of the year it is understandable why many Texans head to swimming pools, lakes, and rivers for water sports to cool off. However, safety should always be a priority when dealing with swimming pools and water sports. This is because drowning accidents, boating accidents, and pool accidents are all too common of a killer, especially for small children. Whether a near drowning, actual drowning, or other serious injury is caused by an incorrectly installed pool, poorly maintained pool, failure of life guards, improperly fenced pool, negligent boater, drunk boater, or other safety violations, it is important that any drowning or near drowning accident is investigated so that an additional drowning does not occur in the future.

Defective Swimming Pool Accident Lawsuits (Defective Swimming Pool Drains, Pumps, and Filter System Claims)
Defective Swimming Pool Drains, Unfenced Swimming Pools, and inadequately monitored water rides can be extremely dangerous causing serious injuries including drowning and hypoxia. Unfortunately, drowning is the second leading cause of death among children under 14 years of age and is a real danger for young children that live near unsecured pools.
Consumer Safety Groups and Organizations including the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have become aware of many dangers with defectively designed and roped pools and have issued several safety warnings about the importance of pool safety.
There have also been several stories in the news where defective swimming pool drains have caused serious injuries to small children as well as trapped small children under water. These defective pool drain and spa drain accidents have caused several children to have been serious injured or killed due to having body parts entrapped by the drain of a swimming pool, wading pool, or spa. Under normal conditions, pipes leading from a pool's drain, or into the pool's pumps, draw water from the pool creating suction. If something blocks the normal function of a pool drain, the amount of suction can increase as the pump draws water past the obstruction. This increased suction can entrap a small child or person, causing the person to be held underwater, which often leads to brain damage because of lack of oxygen or hypoxia. In extreme situations, defective drains in wading pools have caused a child sitting on the drain outlet to be disemboweled by extreme suction.

Texas Drowning, Hypoxia, and Brain Damage Lawsuits
(Lack of Oxygen to the Brain)
Texas Drowning, Swimming Accident, Hypoxia and Brain Damage Lawsuits are complicated because of the number of factors that need to be handled including identifying the cause of the swimming accident, diagnosing the brain injury, assessing the extent of damage caused by the brain injury, determining the permanent physical impairment caused by the brain injury, determining the cost and necessity for future medical treatment, determining other future care needs, and proving the overall loss suffered by the family.
Other Causes of Serious Brain Injuries and Brain Damage (Traumatic Brain Damage Lawsuits)
Serious brain injuries can occur through traumatic impact to the head caused by an automobile accident, serious fall, falling object, construction accident, accidental gun shot, boating accident, or a vicious attack. Severe trauma to the head can cause the brain to move inside the skull and injure the brain. The skull typically protects the brain from injury, but because the inside of the skull is rough a traumatic event that causes the brain to move or to swell inside the skull can cause the brain to press up against the skull and cause serious brain damage.
