Swimming Accidents

California has the second highest number of swimming pool related injuries and fatalities in the United States. Many of these swimming pool accidents involve children. Everyone knows the risks that swimming pools pose to small children and should be careful not to leave children unattended. Unfortunately, these accidents continue to happen.

Accidents involving swimming pools in California often stem from property owners failing to take reasonable measures to keep children from falling in the pool. Other common causes of accidents include failing to maintain the pool area in a safe condition, defective pool design, and failure to properly supervise pool users or employees. Drowning is the most serious of all swimming pool accidents followed by broken bones, head injuries, back and neck injuries, and many others. Swimming pool accidents frequently occur on both on private property and at publicly accessible pools.

If a swimming pool is commercially operated and open to the public, the owner must make every effort to ensure the safety of the area and prevent any reasonably foreseeable accidents. Owners and operators of public pools are frequently sued for injuries caused by their Negligence and can be held liable for damages if they failed to exercise the proper degree of care. Owners of private swimming pools can also be held responsible for accidents resulting from Negligence, or lack of reasonable care and maintenance. In most cases, trespassers cannot recover damages from a property owner for their injuries. However, there are exceptions to this rule, most notably for trespassing children. Any injury claim resulting from a swimming pool accident is subject to a Statutes Of Limitations which limits the amount of time you have to file a lawsuit.
