Swimming Pool Accidents
Swimming Pool Accidents Lawyers
Swimming pools are a fun way to beat the Arizona heat—but when pool areas aren’t properly cared for, they can result in sometimes serious injuries, as well. Broken limbs, infections due to unclean water, back and neck injuries and head injuries are common with pool accidents—and in the worst cases, even death can result.
If you suffer a swimming pool injury due to someone’s negligence, you are entitled to adequate compensation to cover your losses. At the Law Offices of Luis P. Guerra, LLC, we have recovered millions of dollars in settlements for injury accident victims, and we will fight to make sure you receive every dollar you deserve.
Liability and Negligence with Swimming Pool Injuries
While sometimes people get injured at swimming pools due to their own carelessness, many times injuries occur due to negligence. In Arizona, these generally fall under the category of premises liability (i.e., “slip-and-fall” accidents). Property owners are responsible to exercise “reasonable care” in providing a safe environment for guests, including in and around swimming pools. When the property owner/manager is negligent in providing that care, they may be legally liable for any injuries that result. If the accident takes place at a public or community pool, the municipality or management company operating the pool may also be liable.
Examples of negligence with swimming pool accidents may include:
- Inadequate pool maintenance (e.g., water treatment)
- Damaged or defective pool equipment (e.g. broken ladders or diving boards)
- Inadequate lighting
- Missing or faint safety markers indicating pool depths
- Slick spots around the pool with no caution signage
- Inadequate number of lifeguards, or improperly trained lifeguards
- Pool overcrowding
