Long Beach Swimming Pool Accident Lawyer


Compensation for Swimming Pool Accident Injuries

swimming poolSwimming accidents claim the lives of over 1,000 children each year, and swimming pools account for over 33% of the fatalities. Thousands of adults will also die or suffer catastrophic personal injury as a result of swimming mishaps this year.

Owners of private "backyard" pools have a responsibility to provide a safe environment for visitors and need to focus on accident prevention. So do city pools, apartment complexes, and hotels. They need to have fencing. They need to have covers. They need to make sure children cannot enter the premises without being allowed in. When they fail to do these things, they may be held liable to the victim’s family in a lawsuit.

What Is the “Attractive Nuisance” Doctrine?

California, unlike other states, does not adhere to the “attractive nuisance” doctrine in dealing with child trespassers – the idea that young children are naturally attracted to certain hazards, and homeowners who have those hazards on their property (like pools) have a greater responsibility to keep them safe.

Instead, California courts look at each situation on a case-by-case basis. Trespassers are afforded more rights in California, and a jury will decide how much the homeowner has to pay to the victim and family. A good lawyer can make a huge difference in presenting your case, and get you the maximum amount of compensation available.
