June 13, 2011, ERIE, PA — Friday was the last day of school for the children in my house and it reminds me that Pennsylvania people are going to be spending a lot of time in and around swimming pools. Summer’s a great time in Pennsylvania and pools are a lot of fun. Unfortunately, as Pennsylvania injury lawyers who have handled far too many tragic pool accidents, we know too well how dangerous they can be.
If you’ve got a pool (or even if you have children who may play in a neighbor’s pool) now is a good time to brush up on the swimming safety tips we offer on our website. Here’s a quick index with hyperlinks to each of them. Just click on the link to be taken to the article.
