Information about Phoenix Liability in Swimming Pool Drownings

Swimming Pool Accident Liability

Ownership of a pool in Arizona is so common that many of the risks associated with having a pool are often overlooked. After all, a pool can increase the value of your home and provide summer recreation for you and your family. While these, among others, are great reasons to own a pool, there are other factors to consider before becoming a pool owner. Each year there are claims filed against swimming pool owners for liability in drownings. Many of these owners say they were unaware of many of the laws that relate to liability and swimming pools. Below you will find some interesting facts that can help you, or someone you know, be a more responsible swimming pool owner.

Pool Owner Liability in Phoenix

First and foremost, a swimming pool owner should know that the responsibility of providing a safe environment for use of the pool is ultimately theirs. The owner is responsible for the safety of the pool not only for those that use it regularly, but also for all who live near the pool. The owner is also responsible for making sure that the pool meets all of the state legislature requirements. Some of these requirements might come as a surprise to pool owners.

For example, did you know that all ground level doors or other doors with direct access to the swimming pool or other contained body of water must be equipped with a self-latching device that meets the state requirements?

There are many simple things that pool owners can do to create a safe environment for use of their pool. It's important to always make sure that children are supervised when using the pool. Pool owners should also be sure to keep life saving equipment near the pool and in good working order. Adequate insurance coverage is also very important for those that have a pool. One million dollars is often the recommended amount.
