Swimming pools and premises liability claims

Now that the weather is beginning to get warmer, people's thoughts could be turning to spending time in the pool. This means that Connecticut parents might be worried about their children getting into accidents while swimming, which tend to occur more often in the warmer months when more people are swimming outdoors. Over the course of the warmer months, premises liability claims could be filed against establishments and private homes with outdoor -- or indoor -- swimming pools.

Having a pool is an immense responsibility. If it is not properly maintained, people can suffer injuries. Slip and fall injuries are always possible since the sides of a pool are often wet and tile can be slippery. Depths also need to be properly indicated.

Proper supervision is also needed in order to ensure that those invited to use the pool do so safely. Hotels, apartment complexes and public pools are most often thought of when it comes to swimming accidents. However, injuries that occur at private residences, school-sponsored functions and water parks might also be subject to premises liability claims, depending on the circumstances.

Property owners and managers who fail to do what is necessary in order to ensure the safety of people using the pool with permission could be found responsible for any negligence in any premises liability action brought by a seriously injured Connecticut resident. Anyone who has lost a loved one in a pool accident may be entitled to file a wrongful death claim. If a civil court rules that any serious or fatal injury was caused by the negligence of the property owner and/or the party in possession and control, damages could be awarded to help defray the financial losses incurred in its aftermath.
