California leads the nation in swimming pool-related injuries and deaths in the United States. Swimming accidents claim the lives of over 1,000 children each year and accidents in swimming pools account for over one-third of those fatalities.
IT TAKES LESS THAN FIVE MINUTES AND UNDER TWO INCHES OF WATER
FOR A CHILD TO DROWN.
Holding Negligent Pool Owners Responsible
Thousands of adults also die or suffer catastrophic injury yearly as a result of swimming mishaps.
Most swimming pool injuries occur because of improperly designed and constructed pools, failure to properly secure a pool from small children, and failure to maintain the swimming pool in good condition.
Owners of private backyard pools have a responsibility to provide a safe environment for children and adults alike and to focus on accident prevention. Public pools such as community pools and hotel/motel pools are subject to the same guidelines. If you have been injured in a swimming pool accident, you may be able to file a premises liability claim against the responsible owner of a pool if you can prove the owner was negligent, that negligence caused the injury, and that damages occurred as a result.
Liability for swimming pool or spa accidents involves three types of law – negligence or tort law, product liability law and premises liability law. These laws are complex and require the expertise of a personal injury lawyer with experience handling serious swimming pool injury cases.
