Who is Liable?

When an injury or drowning occurs at a public pool, one or more various parties may be involved. If you failed to properly supervise your child and he or she suffered an injury or drowned, it may not be possible to hold the pool responsible. However, pool owners can be held responsible for accidents if hazardous conditions are not properly addressed. Additionally, lifeguards can be held liable for an accident if they are under-trained or failed to follow protocol.

Even pool manufacturers and equipment installers can be held liable if there are problems with pool equipment. Because it can be difficult to identify who is responsible for a public pool accident, you will need to contact an attorney who is experienced in premises liability law.
