Swimming Pool Accidents

Recovering Compensation from Poolside Negligence

Swimming is a very common and refreshing activity for residents of Santa Clarita and other parts of Southern California. Swimming pools, however, are also dangerous facilities that need to be carefully maintained by their owner and oversight must be given to guests. In fact, statistics show that thousands of deaths occur every year in the United States as the result of submersion in water. Children are especially vulnerable to the dangers of swimming pools.

If you or a loved one has suffered from a near-drowning incident, get the legal attention you need from an experienced Santa Clarita personal injury lawyer.

Who is liable for my injuries?

Swimming pool accidents can involve more than just injuries or loss of life from drowning. They also can result from any of the following:

  • Children swimming too close to an underwater drain
  • Slip and falls near the pool
  • Diving board accidents
  • Slide accidents

These accidents can result in catastrophic injuries, such as:

  • Concussions
  • Fractures
  • Strains
  • Sprains

Loss of life is the worst outcome that can occur as the result of a swimming pool accident.

If the injury occurred at another person's pool, they may be liable for the damages you have suffered. Property owners have a duty of care under the state's law to keep their swimming pool premise free of unnecessary dangers. If the property owner knew or should have known about the dangerous condition that caused the injury, he or she can be held liable.
