Swimming Pool Accidents Lawyer

Swimming pools require many safety precautions to prevent accidents from occurring. Homeowners with pools on their property have a responsibility to ensure these structures are safe for their families and guests they invite over for a swim. When a pool is unsafe and causes injury, the property owner may be liable for injuries under premises liability laws. It depends on the circumstances and whether the injury was preventable through standard safety precautions.

Swimming pools come with expected risks. Adults should know that jumping into the shallow end of the pool could cause injury or that the area around the pool may be slippery when wet. However, pool owners do have an obligation to keep guests safe from unforeseen dangers. This includes upkeep of the pool, such as repairing broken handrails, ladders or drain covers. If an injury occurs due to poor pool maintenance, the homeowner may be liable for injuries.

Pools are also attractive nuisances, which mean they are enticing to children. Pool owners have a responsibility to prevent children from entering their pool without permission. A child that wanders by a pool and falls in could drown in minutes. If there was not a security fence or locked gate, the property owner could be liable if a child is harmed accidently in their pool.

Public or Commercial Swimming Pool Accidents

Hotels, community centers and other places with commercial pools have a duty to prevent injuries to guests. If a person is injured or drowns due to lack of safety precautions, the facility may be liable for injuries. It depends on the circumstances, but in many cases, the business may be liable for a preventable pool injury.

Ligori & Ligori is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Ligori.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
