What incidents can our swimming pool accident lawyers help you with?
Public swimming pools
Here in Ontario, the Occupier’s Liability Act governs that swimming pool owners have a legal obligation to keep their premises reasonably safe. In our experience, there are a few factors leading to public swimming pool accidents and injuries. Furthermore, they are mostly based on human error. Here are some of the common safety breaches that can result in swimming pool accidents taking place.
- A lack of/insufficient safety equipment and measures in place
- Insufficient/a lack of supervision for the amount of swimmers present
- Damaged or defected diving boards or swimming pool access steps
- A lack of/insufficient fencing around a swimming pool area
- Negligence from other swimming pool users
Neighbours’ swimming pools
Elsewhere, private swimming pools in neighbours’ gardens provide a great way to cool down from stifling summer heat. Nevertheless, as fun as backyard swimming pools may be, if you are the homeowner where the private swimming pool is based, you are liable for any injuries or even death that may take place on your premises. In some circumstances, homeowners may still be held responsible for serious accidents when injury victims trespass and use your pool without permission. This is why it’s so important to properly fence in your swimming pool, practice proper safety protocols, and prevent access from any unwanted intruders.

Important steps to take when injured
It’s important to remember that injuries can take some time to present themselves. If you’ve been in a bad accident, it’s important to take these steps regardless of how you feel, as it may take a few days or weeks for the full extent of your injuries to become apparent.
