Legal Claim - California Swimming Pool Accident
The injuries most common around swimming pools are:
- Soft tissue damage to knees, feet, ankles, or shoulders as a result of slip and fall onto hard poolside surfaces
A swimming pool accident is often severe, disabling, or fatal. Water and hard surfaces can all too often result in creating a dangerous and potentially negligent situation. Is it really surprising that most swimming pool accidents involve children playing around pools without adequate supervision?
Determining Negligent Parties
Like it or not, swimming pools present a clear danger to young children, especially when unattended. That is why California law mandates that private swimming pools be fenced and secured from unauthorized visitors and trespassers. California state law maintains that owners of swimming pools should take reasonable safety precautions when it is reasonably foreseeable that children could trespass to swim in a swimming pool and drown or otherwise cause harm-injure themselves. For instance, many local and city ordinances require swimming pool owners to install fences and locks around pools to prevent children from gaining access and possibly drowning. Apartment complex owners with pools are also held accountable if the pool area was not secured; and allowed a child to gain access to the pool area.
