Holding Property Owners Accountable
Pool related injuries can occur in a variety of ways and property owners must take care to provide a safe environment. Premises liability is a legal theory under which property owners can be liable for injuries which occur on their property as a result of negligent maintenance or ownership. Hazardous conditions which are allowed to exist can lead to severe injury and can put a swimmer at risk of drowning. The likelihood of injury can increase when pool owners fail to perform routine inspections and pool maintenance.
- Injuries from pool accidents can stem from dangerous conditions including:
- Lack if safety equipment such as lifejackets
- Dirty or murky water restricting visibility
- Broken equipment such as diving boards
- Failure to indicate pool depth
- Missing or damaged pool ladders
- Faulty pool drain covers
What Damages Can I Recover?
Pool owners can be liable for any injury which occurs on their property, not just in cases of drowning or near-drownings. If a slip-and-fall accident occurred due to unsafe conditions, property owners can be held liable for resulting damages.
At our law firm, we know that suffering an injury of any kind can lead to undue stress from medical bills, loss of income, pain and suffering, and a reduction in your quality of life. No matter what sort of injury you received as a result of hazardous pool conditions, it is vital to seek the compensation you need to assist in your recovery.

- Traumatic brain injuries
