Slip and fall accidents, accidental drownings and other swimming pool accidents often involve property owner negligence. Obtaining compensation for the victims usually requires a careful investigation the conditions that led up to the 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
