Georgia Swimming Pool Accidents and Premises Liability

As the summer season heats up, many people turn to swimming pools to cool off and have fun. While swimming pools can provide a great source of entertainment and relaxation, they can also pose certain risks, especially when it comes to premises liability. In Georgia, property owners have a legal duty to maintain safe premises, including swimming pools, and failure to do so can result in serious accidents and injuries.

Conley Griggs Partin, LLP, explores the topic of swimming pool accidents in Georgia and the premises liability issues associated with them.

Premises Liability in Georgia

Premises liability refers to the legal responsibility of property owners to maintain safe conditions on their premises. This includes ensuring that swimming pools are properly maintained, secured and free from hazards that could cause harm to visitors. Under Georgia law, property owners owe a duty of care to those who enter their premises, including maintaining the property in a reasonably safe condition, addressing any known hazards and warning visitors of potential dangers.

Swimming Pool Accidents in Georgia

Unfortunately, swimming pool accidents are not uncommon in Georgia. These accidents can result from a variety of factors, such as:

  • Slippery pool decks
  • Poor maintenance
  • Lack of proper signage
  • Inadequate fencing
  • Negligent supervision
  • Horseplay
  • Intoxication

Common swimming pool accidents include slip-and-fall injuries, diving accidents, drownings and near-drowning incidents. In many cases, these accidents can be attributed to the property owner’s failure to uphold their duty of care in maintaining a safe swimming environment.

Legal Considerations in Swimming Pool Accident Cases

When a swimming pool accident occurs due to the property owner’s negligence, the injured party may have grounds to pursue a premises liability claim. To establish a premises liability case in Georgia, the injured party will need to demonstrate that the property owner breached their duty of care and that this breach directly led to the accident and resulting injuries.

It is important to gather evidence, such as photographs or videos of the accident scene, witness statements and medical records to support the claim. The Atlanta, GA, Injury Lawyers at Conley Griggs Partin, LLP, can help you collect appropriate evidence and statements for pursuing a claim and otherwise build a solid case for damages.

As an Atlanta Attorney I have known Cale Conley personally for nearly 20 years. I first heard about Cale through other lawyers, who talked about his remarkable skill and great results as a trial attorney. When I finally had the chance to refer a case to Cale and work with him as a colleague, I was blown away by the level of his professionalism, knowledge and skill. Over the past few years I have referred several clients with large and complex cases to Cale and his firm and have been extremely impressed with the results he has obtained! In my opinion, Cale is one of the best Attorneys in the United States. Not just in Atlanta or Georgia, but anywhere. I am totally confident in referring any case or client to him. Not only is he a great attorney, he and his firm and partners take good care of clients and care deeply about them. If I could give Cale and his firm more than 5-Stars I would.

I had the pleasure of trying a very complicated products liability case with Cale Conley and Davis Popper. They and their entire office are fantastic, and I could not recommend them more highly. The entire process, from the time that we brought them in to work with us, through the course of the case and trial, was seamless. Cale, Richard, Rance, and Davis are some of the finest trial lawyers in the Country, and I look forward to working with them on future cases.
