You can fight for compensation after a slip-and-fall accident

You love swimming, especially when temperatures soar in the summer. The problem is that so many of the pools you've been to don't seem very safe. Some don't have lifeguards, and others have slick areas around the pools. What happens if you fall or get hurt at these facilities?

Depending on the owner's actions, you may be able to file a lawsuit if you slip and fall at a pool. The owner should take steps to help avoid accidents. Some of the things that he or she should do include ensuring that there are working drains and pool covers. Why is that important? A properly working drain helps keep the floors dry, preventing slick tiles. Pool covers keep the water covered up, so even if a child or you fall onto it, you are unlikely to come into contact with the pool itself.

Another thing that pool owners need to do is to have flotation devices nearby. For example, you may notice that many pools have long pool nets and lifesavers nearby. These are there to help if anyone is stranded in the pool or needs assistance.

If, for instance, you slipped and fell into the pool and could not swim, someone nearby should be able to throw you a flotation device. If none is present, that opens the pool's owner to liability concerns. If this or another situation like this happens to you, you may wish to speak with your attorney. You may be entitled to compensation for the injuries you've suffered and the trauma you've been through due to the owner's negligence. Our website has more information.
