Tennessee Swimming Pool Injury Attorneys
Owning a swimming pool can be great fun, but also comes with significant responsibility. Residences and businesses are legally obligated to provide a safe environment for their guests. Owners or operators must properly maintain their pools and warn guests of any potential hazards, or they risk being liable for negligence if someone gets hurt. When a swimming pool is not properly maintained or when full precautions are not taken, disasters can occur and swimmers can be seriously injured.
While some swimming pool accidents may be minor, other injuries come with significant recovery costs. A Tennessee swimming pool injury attorney may be able to help you seek compensation from the negligent party to cover the costs of your recovery. The legal team at Pohl & Berk, LLP, has years of experience helping accident victims fight for compensation from negligent parties.
Causes of Swimming Pool Accidents
Unfortunately, children are most often the victims of swimming pool accidents. Negligence on the part of the owner, operator, or supervisor can result in a serious injury or tragic death. Some possible swimming pool accidents include:
- Diving board injuries
- Pool drain injuries
- Lack of supervision
Swimming pool owners and operators who fail to provide a safe environment for guests may be liable for any injuries that occur due to their negligence. Further, manufacturers may be held liable if an accident occurs due to a malfunctioning or defective part. For example, if an injury occurred due to a diving board defect, the manufacturer of the board may be liable for the accident.
