Swimming Pool Injuries & Liability
Swimming pool accidents commonly result from:
- Children swimming too close to an underwater drain.
- Slip and falls near the pool.
- Diving board accidents.
- Slide accidents.
Thus, these accidents can result in catastrophic injuries – from concussions and fractures to strains and sprains. The loss of a life is the worst outcome that can occur as the result of a swimming pool accident.
If the injury occurred at another person’s pool, they may be liable for the damages suffered. Under the state’s law, property owners have a duty of care to keep their swimming pool premise free of unnecessary dangers. If the property owner knew, or should have known, about the dangerous condition that caused the injury, he or she could be held liable.
