According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, about 10 people die from unintentional drowning every day. Twenty percent of those deaths are children who are 14 or younger. Like all property owners, swimming pool owners are responsible for accidents that occur on their property.

Different Standards of Care
We assist our clients in handling swimming pool accidents involving public pools, hotel pools and private swimming pools. Generally speaking a property owner is liable if he or she knew about the defect and did not warn anyone, allowing it to exist. However, while that is the general rule, in swimming pool cases, the law can vary greatly depending on whether the injured person was on the property as a trespasser or an invitee (invited onto the property). For these different roles, there are different standards of care that exist. Our attorneys will analyze the details of your case and help determine your best legal strategy.
