  • Common Children Hazards/Accidents: Unsafe Swimming Pools, Defective Toys, & Negligent Poisoning of Children San Diego Child Accident Lawyer Mark C. Blane briefly talks about unsafe swimming pools, defective or unsafe toys, and the negligent poisoning of minor children. In Southern California, swimming pools are part of our lives; especially inland from the coast where the weather can get hot, and the residents do not have the easy access to cool ocean breezes. Unfortunately, swimming pools can be deadly for children; drowning accidents as well as serious slip and falls happen all too often.
