Sacramento Swimming Pool Accident Attorney
Counsel from a Skilled Sacramento Personal Injury Lawyer
Swimming pools, by their very nature, can be hazardous. There is always
a danger of drowning and slippery surfaces can easily cause slip and fall
injuries to visitors and swimmers alike. Many of these injuries do not
provide a circumstance of negligence, but some can be the result of fault
by the pool owner or other parties. If you believe that a pool owner's
actions led directly to your swimming pool injury, then it may be time
to speak with a legal professional.

personal injury attorneys has more than three decades of legal experience. We know how
to parse the nuanced circumstances of a dangerous accident and clearly

Pool Owner Negligence and "Attractive Nuisance" Law
Pool injuries that are the result of the action or inaction of pool or
property owner involve negligence and can be accountable in civil court.
Not all pool injuries qualify for civil action, but instances in which
an owner failed to provide the safest possible environment for swimmers
can make them vulnerable to legal action.
Common examples of pool owner negligence include:
- Failing to provide proper supervision (life guard services)
- Failing to ensure safe ladders, slides, and diving boards
- Failing to properly label dangerous areas, pool depths, or other safety
- Failing to provide proper fencing and barriers around the pool
In other states, "attractive nuisance" laws would also make pool
owners responsible for injuries suffered by curious children—even
if the children were trespassing on the pool grounds. In California, this
is not the case, but there still are circumstances in which pool owners,
property owners, even equipment and pool manufacturers can be held responsible
for your injury.
At The Law Office of Michael R. Loewen our team can help assess the circumstances
of your pool accident and determine what your legal options are.
