Swimming Pool Accident Lawsuits
Swimming pools can provide relaxation and fun for guests at hotels, resorts, waterparks and other venues, but they are also a known danger. Swimming pool accidents can quickly become deadly, especially for children. Drowning, oxygen deprivation, brain damage and other injuries can have long-lasting impacts on the victim and their family. When commercial swimming pools are not properly maintained for safety, injuries that occur can be a liability for the business owner.
Any commercial property that contains a swimming pool must take precautions to prevent injuries. Many hotels, waterparks or resorts will hire lifeguards to protect swimmers from injury during pool hours and use security options to keep the pool locked when not under supervision. Responsible property management also maintains the pool equipment to ensure swimmers are reasonably safe from injury. However, when these precautions are not in place, serious and even fatal, swimming pool injuries can occur.
Premises Liability Pool Accidents
When a child drowns in a hotel swimming pool that is not secured or a faulty drain cover causes a serious injury to a swimmer at a waterpark, these catastrophic accidents can cause life-altering consequences. They also may be covered under the premises liability insurance carried by the property or business owner. When reasonable safety or security measures by the business may have prevented a death or injury, a swimming pool accident lawsuit against the business may be possible to recover funds to cover medical bills, pain and suffering, lost income and other damages.
