Although swimming pools have long been a source of family fun in the sun, they can also pose a significant safety risk if they are not properly maintained. Among other potential hazards, the areas around a pool often become wet and slick when water splashes and swimmers get in and out of the pool. Combined with foot traffic, including people running to and from the pool area, a wet surface becomes a possible source of serious harm.

Liability for Swimming Pool Accidents

Whether it is on a wet swimming pool deck, a cluttered grocery store aisle or an icy sidewalk, a person hurt in a slip and fall accident has the legal right to seek compensation from those responsible. That includes the owner of the property where the accident took place, which is generally expected to keep the premises in a safe condition. The damages available in these cases usually include money for medical bills, missed wages because of time away from work while healing, pain and suffering, and emotional distress.

Premises liability is a legal theory under which a property owner may be held accountable for accidents that occur on the grounds. The law requires a property owner to maintain the premises in a reasonably safe condition and to warn visitors of any hazards that the owner knows about, as well as those of which the owner should be aware through reasonable inspection. That means keeping the decks of public and private pools and other surrounding areas relatively dry. It also means warning visitors that the decks may be wet and advising them to proceed with caution.

A property owner that fails to take these precautions is likely to be liable for any slip and fall accidents that result. A person who has been hurt must detail the specific injuries that occurred and show that they were sustained in the slip and fall. The injured person also must show the full extent of the costs and losses that he or she has or is expected to incur, such as medical expenses and missed wages.
