Swimming pool accidents may be fatal or nonfatal. Our attorneys have handled both types of accidents, and we know all too well the havoc that these injuries can wreak on families’ lives. These accidents can include slip and falls, diving in shallow water, entrapment in a pool drain, and more.Common serious swimming pool injuries include:
- Drownings / near-drownings
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Broken bones from slips and falls
- Spinal cord injuries
Swimming pool accident claims fall under premises liability law. Premises liability law regards the duty of care that property owners have to keep guests on their premises safe.
Pool owners must take precautions including:
- Maintaining pool equipment and replacing all defective or malfunctioning parts
- Supplying warning and safety signage, such as “no diving” (if applicable)
- Ensure that pools are properly secured with a secure regulation barrier, such as a fence with a locking gate
- Ensuring that surfaces around the pool are clear of debris and tripping hazards
- Maintaining proper chemical levels in the pool
- Properly marking depths
- And more
If your pool injury was due to a property owner’s negligence, you need to enlist the help of a swimming pool accident lawyer who can help you decide your next steps. However, it’s important to choose the right attorney. Pool accident claims can be very difficult to litigate, and negligence may be difficult to prove.
