Public Swimming Pool Injuries and Liability

Public swimming pools can be a fun and exciting place to go cool off and have fun during the hot summer months, but there are dangers about public pools that people often do not consider. When a serious injury or drowning occurs at a public pool, proving liability may be a difficult task because there are many different parties that could be held liable.

If you or someone you care about was injured or worse at a public pool due to negligent staff or hazardous conditions, you may qualify for financial compensation.

Proving Liability

In public pool accidents, there are various parties that could be held responsible. Oftentimes, public pools have rules known as “touch supervision” rules that state if a parent isn't watching his or her child and that child is injured or drowns, the pool cannot be held liable. However, in many other circumstances, parties such as the pool owner, pool lifeguards, pool manufacturers, or equipment installers may be held liable for accidents depending on the situation.

Pool owners may be held liable if there were hazardous conditions on the property. Lifeguards could be held responsible if they are under-trained and fail to respond appropriately to a situation or if they act negligently. In other circumstances, pool manufacturers or equipment installers could be held liable if their pool equipment caused an injury in any way.
