Are Owners Of Swimming Pools Liable For Drowning Accidents And Swimming Injuries In Their Pool?

The owner of a swimming pool may be liable for drownings or accidents in the pool. The issues will center on the knowledge of the owner of the pool load, the type of bather involved – is it a young child or is it an older adult person who should be able to supervise themselves. The other questions to be asked are what is the shape of the pool, is the drain adequately covered, does it meet today’s standards and requirements of Florida law or not? These are the questions that you should ask in evaluating a potential drowning or swimming injury case.
