  • Health and safety code violations
  • Hazardous or toxic materials
  • Drowning
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Diving accidents
  • Defective products or equipment
  • Drain accidents
  • Spa accidents

Private Pools

The owners of private swimming pools can also be held liable under premises liability for unsafe conditions and easy access to an “attractive nuisance.” Negligence can be established and thus liability for a lack of supervision, defective equipment, a lack of safety gates, unmarked or poorly marked water depths which contributed to the accident or death.

Public Pools

Public pools are held to health and safety standards which is supposed to prevent harm to the public.  Accident injuries,  deaths and drownings that occur at public pools are often the result of poorly trained or understaffed lifeguards, overcrowded conditions, slippery surfaces, defective drains, unmarked or poorly marked water depths, and other dangerous conditions which have been linked to the cause of the accident, injury or death. Distracted parents and a lack of supervision by responsible adults has seen a rising share of injury and death.
