In California, many homeowners have a pool in their yard or don’t live too far from a public pool. It is the responsibility of the homeowner or public pool owner to keep their swimming area safe and maintained in keeping guests and patrons from getting injured. Homeowners generally take safety measures like keeping their pool maintained, clean and clear and installing fencing or childproof gates. Public pool owners are generally held to much higher standards, such as providing properly trained lifeguards, keeping the chemical levels just right, properly maintaining the grounds and restrooms and providing rules and proper signage around their property.
Whether you were at someone’s personal pool, or at a public facility, if you were injured or have lost a loved one due to an accidental death caused by drowning, it is important that you learn what your legal rights are by discussing the details of your situation and the events that took place with a competent Los Angeles personal injury attorney.
