Who Is Responsible for a Swimming Pool Accident?
Swimming pool injury and wrongful death cases are covered by an area of law known as premises liability. Property owners are responsible for maintaining their premises in a reasonably safe condition to protect guests from serious injury. Examples of property owner negligence may include:
- Unlocked gates
- Uncovered pools
- Areas surrounding a pool that become slippery when wet
- Lack of warning signs or life-saving equipment
- Negligent conditions at pools at foreclosed or vacant homes
Our lawyers handle injuries and drownings occurring at private pools, as well as pools in public settings such as hotels and amusement parks. Accidents occurring at private residences are usually covered by homeowner's insurance.
