Do I Have A Pool Injury Case?
Establishing liability is an important component in a pool injury lawsuit. As pools are generally considered to be a part of the property where the pool is located, premises liability laws often become a part of the lawsuit.
Under premises liability, a landowner or entity that possesses property can be held liable for injuries and damages that are sustained on that property. For example - if a landowner knew of a dangerous condition around a pool - like a loose tile - and failed to:
- Notify the plaintiff about that tile
- Put warning signage around the tile
- Did nothing to fix the issue
... that landowner may potentially be held liable under premises liability law.
However, there are also provisions that can protect landowners from plaintiffs that are not eligible to support their claim. For example - if someone was uninvited and trespassing on their property - and was injured swimming in a pool on that property - that injury victim may not be eligible to file a lawsuit.
Lawsuits involving premises liability can be complex issues that require the oversight of an experienced, licensed attorney. There are often many variables in these cases that require great attention to detail in order to help prove negligence and establish the grounds to pursue a robust damages claim.

If you need answers about your potential lawsuit, we encourage you to call us today and let us explore the legal options that may be available to you.
Why Hire A Lawyer?
In the event that an individual is seriously hurt - or perhaps fatally injured - in a pool-related incident, the insurance company that has issued the insurance policy on the property will most likely be involved in the situation quickly.
While not all policies include coverage for liability, for those that do, it is the goal of the insurance company to settle the claim for the lowest financial amount possible, as quickly as possible. In order to do this, the insurance company may request the victim and/or their family members to sign documentation or to provide a statement about the event. This information can be used against you should a damages lawsuit be filed.

Our goal is to provide our clients with an opportunity to move forward with the recovery process, while we work to hold negligent parties accountable for their actions.
Common Causes of Pool Related Accidents
With the combination of wet conditions and people being physically active, pools and water parks can be a common source of injury causing incidents. Some reasons for this include:
- Lack of maintenance
- Lack of warning signs
- Lack of supervision
- Incorrectly installed diving boards
- Diving into too-shallow areas
- Obstacles around the pool
- Tripping hazards around the pool
- Uncovered drains
- Poorly treated water which can cause ear, eye and throat infections, respiratory issues and intestinal issues
If you believe that you were injured at a pool due to the negligence of the pool owners, you may be eligible to file a damages claim.
