Legal Accountability For Swimming Pool Accidents
With ownership of a swimming pool comes a responsibility to ensure safe surroundings for visitors. Falling short of those obligations could lead to serious injuries or death.
The attorneys at the Georgia-based Sams, Larkin & Huff, LLP have experience with swimming and diving injuries. We devote all of our firm’s resources to holding negligent parties accountable.
Hidden Dangers At Private And Public Pools In Georgia
Pools are popular destinations at a hotel, water park (private and city/county owned) or country club. They are also magnets for activity at private residences. Accidents can occur, particularly with children, in both settings, resulting in:
- Traumatic brain injury (head trauma or near-drowning)
- Spinal cord injuries
- Broken bones
- Emotional trauma (fear of water)
Not all swimming pool accident claims are the fault of the pool’s owner. At Sams, Larkin & Huff, LLP, our fact-finding in premises liability claims often uncovers design and manufacturing defects in a pool pump, drain, gate or diving board.
