It is probably no surprise, with the sunny and mild weather we experience in Southern California, that hundreds of thousands of homes have swimming pools. With this large amount comes the risk of more injuries and deaths related to swimming pool accidents. California is second only to Florida for the most swimming pool accidents.
Injuries involving swimming pools are often caused by improperly designed equipment, inadequate maintenance, or unsecured or open pool areas. A drowning death can take the life of any person, but most of the victims are children that were unsupervised. It only takes a child a matter of minutes and very little water to drown if left alone.
Property owners may be held liable, in certain circumstances, for injuries and/or deaths that occurred in or around their swimming pools. If you or a loved has been the victim of a swimming pool or drowning accident, you may be able to file a claim of negligence or premises liability.
