Who can be held liable for a swimming pool accident in LA?
There may be various parties that can be held liable in the event an injury occurs in or around a swimming pool. Property owners of any establishment that has a pool have a responsibility to ensure that the pools and the areas surrounding the pools are safe and secure for guests and visitors.
Unfortunately, we often find that accidents involving pools are a direct result of property owners’ carelessness or negligence. Some of the most common causes of injuries include the following:
- Slipping in water accumulated around a pool
- Overuse of pool chemicals
- Not enough use of pool chemicals
- Broken pool ladders
- Uncovered pool drains
- Diving into shallow swimming pools
- A lack of warning signs
- Lack of supervision
- Lack of fencing around a pool
Unfortunately, the injuries sustained in these incidents are often severe. The attorneys at JML Law regularly help clients and families of those who have sustained the following:
- Broken and dislocated bones
- Severe sprains or strains
- Spinal cord injuries with paralysis
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Open head wounds
- Internal organ damage
- Internal bleeding
- Severe lacerations
- Drowning or near-drowning incidents
- Hypoxic brain injury
Proving liability for a swimming pool accident case can be challenging and will revolve around obtaining any evidence needed to show property owner negligence. It is crucial to get these claims filed as soon as possible. The California statute of limitations for personal injury claims is two years from the date an injury occurs, so work with an attorney who can begin the filing process on your behalf.
