Many people in Oklahoma have personal swimming pools, as they are a wonderful way to enjoy swimming and beat the heat. Swimming pools are notoriously dangerous and require proper supervision, good maintenance, and the implementation of safety rules and warnings in order for pool goers to remain safe. Being a home pool owner comes with a great deal of responsibility, but when the proper steps are not taken and there is a lack of supervision that leads to personal injury, these people should be held accountable.
The most common types of swimming pools accidents include slips and falls, diving accidents, and drowning accidents. The majority of these types of pool accidents occur as a result of a negligent pool owner or a lack of supervision on the part of the pool owner. As property owners, these individuals are responsible for taking proper measures to ensure the safety of the pool area and those using it. This is commonly referred to as premises liability, which means that property owners are responsible for making sure their homes, yards, pools, and other facilities are safe for visitors. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury because of an unsafe pool or surrounding area conditions, you have a legal right to file a claim or lawsuit against the property owner.
