In just the blink of an eye, a fun day at the pool can turn tragic. Pool owners and operators in Los Angeles have a duty to provide a safe pool environment and to warn or guard against non-obvious hazards. When pools, whether public or private, breach this duty, injuries can and do occur.
A pool injury accident can include anything from minor cuts and bruises to more serious injuries, such as paralysis, brain damage, and death. Examples of pool accidents include:
- Near drowning
- Diving accidents (hitting the diving board; hitting the side of pool; or hitting a shallow bottom)
- Slip and falls
- Trip and falls
- Lack of or failure to supervise children
- Rough housing and/or aggressively playing children
- Chemical burns
- Inexperienced swimmers that can fatigue or pull others under the surface
- Locker-room and bathroom accidents
- And others
The more severe and catastrophic the injury, the more grueling and expensive the treatment can be. Furthermore, if you or a loved one has suffered a spinal cord or a brain injury, the treatment and care can last a lifetime and be emotionally and financially debilitating.
Holding at-fault pool owners and operators responsible is important not only so you or your loved one can secure the financial compensation needed for your losses, but also to prevent other accidents from occurring in the future. Whether it’s a premises liability, negligence, or products liability theory of recovery, you will need a powerhouse law firm on your side that has a proven track record of obtaining multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements.
