Nueces County Pool Injury Attorneys for Defective Equipment, Negligent Maintenance, or Improper Supervision

While swimming pools offer the opportunity for fun and relaxation, they are also a location where injuries commonly occur. A lack of supervision at a public or private pool may lead to drownings, or people may be injured by pool equipment that is defective or that has not been properly maintained. When these types of accidents take place because of negligence on the part of the owner of the property where the pool is located, victims may be able to take legal action to recover financial compensation. An attorney with experience in premises liability cases can help an injury victim demonstrate that a property owner was responsible for a swimming pool accident, ensuring that they can receive compensation for their damages.

The Edwards Law Firm offers experienced and dedicated legal help to people who have suffered injuries because of other people's negligence. We know the emotional and practical difficulties that families can experience when recovering from an injury, and we work to ensure that they will be able to hold a negligent property owner or other parties responsible for the harm they have suffered. We have more than 100 combined years of legal experience, and we understand the best ways to address the legal issues that may arise as victims seek compensation that will allow them to recover from serious injuries.

Negligence Leading to Swimming Pool Accidents

Pool owners are required to take the proper measures to protect the safety of visitors who are allowed to use a pool or other parts of their premises. Accidents and injuries can occur if a pool owner is negligent in following the correct safety practices. These injuries may be caused by issues such as:

  • Lifeguards - At public pools and certain types of private pools, owners are required to maintain lifeguard supervision. Drownings or other injuries may occur if lifeguards are not present or if they have not been properly trained to respond to emergencies.
  • Equipment - Pumps, filters, and other equipment used in a pool should be properly maintained. If this equipment malfunctions, swimmers may become entrapped by the suction of a vent, leading to drownings or other types of injuries. If equipment was designed or manufactured defectively, victims may be able to pursue compensation from the manufacturer through a product liability lawsuit.
  • Slipping and tripping hazards - While a pool's users should generally be aware of potential hazards due to wet walking surfaces, there are some situations where the conditions around a pool may not be reasonably safe. Obstructions in walkways around a pool may create tripping hazards, or damaged or defective railings may lead to fall injuries.
  • Pool chemicals - A pool's users may contract infections if the proper chemicals were not used to ensure that the water in a pool was safe. An imbalance of chemicals may also cause people to experience health issues or other injuries.
  • Negligent security - An owner should ensure that the proper security systems are used around a pool and elsewhere on the premises to prevent injuries to visitors. Injuries may occur due to failure to install fences or lock gates or failure to address actions by visitors that may threaten the safety of others.
