Determining Whether the Owner or Operator Took Appropriate Pool Safety Measures
Just because swimming is an inherently risky activity does not mean that property owners and other parties do not have a responsibility to avoid swimming pool accidents. There are many things that can be done to reduce the risks of drowning, including:
- Full removal of pool covers when pools are in use
- Attachment of safety guards to suction devices
- Posting of accurate signs about pool depth
- Appropriate warnings when no lifeguard is available
When a school, athletic club, public authority or other swimming pool operator fails to take reasonable safety measures to avoid accidents, it may be possible to bring a personal injury claim against it under premises liability law or another legal theory.
