Dallas Drowning & Swimming Pool Accident Attorney

Understanding a Pool Owner's Legal Responsibilities

In the state of Texas, all property owners are responsible for maintaining a safe environment for their visitors—be it the owner of a home, public pool, hotel, school, etc. While they cannot be expected to foresee every possible danger or hazard that may arise on the premises, they are legally obligated to take "reasonable" precaution. So what exactly does this mean? Apart from ensuring that the property has been designed per proper building codes, property owners and/or managers are also responsible for conducting routine maintenance, remedying hazardous conditions in a timely manner and taking other reasonably prudent measures to ensure their guests' safety. Should they fail to do so, they would be liable for any injuries that are suffered on the premises as a result—which, in cases of drowning and swimming pool accidents, could even include a fatality.

Some of the most common instances of pool owner negligence include:

  • Failing to utilize an adequate number of lifeguards
  • Failing to post necessary warning signs around the pool
  • Failing to conduct routine maintenance and/or cleanings
  • Failing to construct a gate or fence around the pool
    • Failing to fix a broken pool gate
  • Failing to put a cover over the pool or Jacuzzi drain

Was your child involved in a drowning or near-drowning accident?

Unfortunately, drowning and near-drowning accidents most commonly affect children. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has reported that drowning is the leading cause of death for children between the ages of one and four, and the second-leading cause of unintentional death for children between the ages of one and fourteen. Apart from death, drowning and near-drowning accidents can also lead to catastrophic injuries like permanent brain damage. This, in turn, can lead to costly medical bills and unending pain and suffering for both the victim and their family. For this reason, you should not hesitate to hold the responsible party accountable for the harm that you or your child has suffered. By contacting a Dallas personal injury lawyer at the Lenahan Law Firm today, you begin exploring your options for financial compensation.
