Public Pools and Beaches • Health Clubs • Water Slides

Once the owners of a pool assume the duty of providing a lifeguard, they accept liability for injuries stemming from negligence. The most common scenarios are (a) inattentive lifeguards and (b) too few lifeguards for the number of people. We have helped clients bring claims against privately owned swimming pools, such as a fitness club or indoor water park, as well as government entities that operate community pools or public swimming beaches. (Most hotel pools do not provide lifeguards and swimmers enter at their own risk.)

Private (Backyard) Pools

An in-ground, above-ground or even a kiddie pool presents inherent risks for unattended children. The owners/parents have a duty to supervise poolside (not merely “check on” the swimmers), especially children under 6. Neighbors can also be liable for injuries from ladders, diving boards and equipment, and accountable for maintaining gates and fences to keep young children out.

If your child suffered a swimming pool accident, let us determine if you have a claim. We offer a free consultation at 866-719-4394. There are no attorney fees unless we take your case and secure compensation.
