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.

What Our Happy Clients say

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Ligori was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Ligori to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Alisabeth S.

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 got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
