Determining Liability

If the pool where the accident occurred is on private property, it was the duty of the pool owner to take reasonable precautions to make sure that the swimming pool was safe for those using it. We typically count on lifeguards, but if safety precautions aren’t taken and an injury or a drowning happens, a pool’s owner may be liable, and victims or survivors may file a wrongful death lawsuit or a personal injury lawsuit. The homeowner or business owner responsible for the pool is typically at least partially responsible for any injuries that occur there. Sometimes there is a defect with the pool or pool equipment, and someone is trapped or “sucked under” the water. In these accidents, victims and survivors may pursue a product liability claim against the pool’s manufacturer or builder.

When Tragedy Strikes

Swimming pool accidents are not uncommon, especially in the summer and particularly among young children. In fact, the age group with the highest drowning rate is children under age 5, and most of those children drown in private, residential pools. If a tragedy like this happens to your child, you have the absolute right to pursue legal action for medical and hospital bills, rehabilitation expenses, prescription drug costs, nursing care, and any other injury-related expense. After any injury or wrongful death that happens in a swimming pool, speak at once with an experienced Dallas swimming accident lawyer at the Weaver Injury Law Firm.
