Pool Accident Locations
Pool accidents can happen at private pools, community or public pools, residential pools or hotel pools. Plus, injuries even happen with inflatable pools.
The law requires public pools to have a lifeguard on duty when there are swimmers under 16. There must be one lifeguard per 100 bathers or 2,000 square feet. Lifeguards also need to be present at wave pools, water slides and water parks.
Negligence at the pool causes accidents. However, help is available.
Common Pool Accident Locations
The owner of the property that has the swimming pool is responsible for the safety of the children and adults who use it. This includes houses, condos, hotels, apartments or any other public or private pool.
Inadequate safety measures like the absence of fencing, lack of supervision or lifeguards, no covers, faulty valves and drains can injure swimmers. There is a duty of reasonable care in the upkeep of the pool. When this is flawed, and you get hurt, you deserve compensation for your damages.
Pool accidents commonly happen due to:
- Defective pool parts
- Missing safety markings
- Defective diving boards
- Inadequate pool maintenance
- Poor pool lighting
- Missing safety equipment
- Improperly trained staff
- Damaged or absent pool ladders
