Homeowners with a pool must be extremely cautious and aware of drowning risk, particularly with children, regardless of whether or not they have children. In fact, the state of Florida sees more child drownings under the age of five than any other state. Those who own a pool that’s accessible to a child at any time may be held responsible in the event of a death. Speak with a drowning accident lawyer with The Ruth Law Team to determine if you have a case. 

These accidents fall under the Personal Injury legal category referred to as Wrongful Death cases. Swimming pools are considered by law to be an “attractive nuisance,” which refers to a property owner’s liability to prevent access to any hazardous object or condition that might be found attractive to a child. Therefore, a pool owner must take adequate steps to deter anyone from gaining access to the pool without the owner’s permission.
