All pool owners, whether of a private residence or business, are expected to maintain a safe premise for swimmers and other attendees. In other words, they have a standard duty of care to all visitors and/or patrons. Any violation of this duty constitutes negligence, which can be met with a liability claim. Common forms of pool owner negligence include:
- Inadequate personnel and supervision;
- Inadequate signage designating depth;
- Improper chemical treatment of pool water;
- Dangerous or defective pool drain cover;
- Broken tile flooring around the pool;
- Trip-conducive objects left on the floor of pool area; and/or
- Unsecured barrier and/or gate around the pool area.
While everyone can experience a swimming pool accident, children are especially vulnerable. There should always be adequate and attentive adult supervision when children are in the pool, no exceptions.
