Hold responsible parties accountable

Drowning is preventable. Those responsible for public pools have a duty to protect against known or foreseeable dangers by taking simple steps that can prevent unauthorized or unsupervised use of pools or other dangers bodies of water.

Who is responsible for a victim’s drowning accident?

The right party to hold accountable for your loved one’s drowning will largely depend on the location of their accident. However, the most common drowning accident defendants are owners or those responsible for:

  • Public Pools
  • Private Pools
  • Hot Tubs
  • Resorts with Aquatic Features
  • Resorts with Beach Access

What are pool owners and managers’ responsibilities?

People responsible for pools, hot tubs and resorts must inspect and maintain pool fences, gates and locks. They must keep these features in good working order. Also, pool owners must inspect and properly maintain all pool and hot tub drain covers. This prevents swimmers from being trapped or suctioned under the water. Likewise, pool owners must hire qualified lifeguards, post warning signs, and provide life saving equipment.

Similarly, hotels and resorts with beach access have the same duty of care. However, they also have a duty to warn guests about known risks like rip tides and undertows.

Owners of swimming pools on private property, including private homes, apartment, condominium complexes, and condominium associations are also required to protect against drowning risks by adopting safety measures to prevent accidents.

Pool owners who fail to follow these precautions will be held liable for any drowning accident.
