Swimming Pool Injury
Swimming pool owners have special responsibilities when it comes to premises liability and safety. They are required to make sure that they have taken the steps necessary to avoid the injuries that can occur in and around swimming pools.
Americans enjoy swimming pools in our communities, homes, hotels, apartment buildings and elsewhere. But along with the fun, there are very real dangers. The US Consumer Product Safety Commission has reported nearly 400 swimming pool fatalities per year in recent years and most of these involve small children. The situation is so serious that in 2010 the CPSC launched a major safety campaign to try to reduce injury and death related to swimming pools and spas. Atlanta Georgia’s Charles Scholle is a well-respected lawyer with nearly two decades of experience compassionately representing clients and their loved ones who have been seriously injured due to the property owners’ negligence.
Swimming pool owners can be held responsible for the following conditions, among others:
- Failure to properly fence or to fence a swimming pool
- Lack of supervision or negligent supervision
- Failure to provide lifeguards or hiring inadequate lifeguards
- Failure to post warning signs or inadequate signs about pool safety
Swimming pool injuries can be caused by many circumstances. For example, a slippery area next to the pool might lead to a person falling in the pool or a filtering system or drainage system might pull a person under water and cause drowning. Or a diving board might be over water that is too shallow for safe diving with catastrophic injury to the diver. Other injuries that can result include:
- Spine injury;
- Neck injury;
- Broken bones;
- Internal injuries;
- Head injury;
- Back injury;
Swimming pool liability is well established where the property owner is shown to have failed to have adequately protected people from injury in and around the swimming pool. These cases can be tragic because they often involve children and serious injury or death. They require the skill and expertise of a dedicated lawyer with knowledge about both personal injury litigation and premises liability, as well as, tragically wrongful death.Legal Help for Swimming Pool Injuries
