Swimming Pool Injury Lawsuits in Texas
Texas offers numerous pool and spa facilities available to children and families which are all required to abide by the numerous safety regulations to ensure guests and residents can enjoy themselves without worry. Unfortunately pools and their systems, the protective fences and gates and the water itself deteriorate over time. Owners or managers of a pool facility who try to economize by cutbacks in pool maintenance and repairs or adequate lifeguard presence and training will be held accountable by a pool accident lawyer at our firm.
Failure to carry out frequent & thorough inspections can allow for dangerous conditions:
- Lack of or damaged pool ladders preventing easy exit
- Non-working pool lights
- Missing safety equipment such as throwing ropes with attached buoys and Sheppard's hooks
- Unclear or murky water
- Infrequent or inadequate pool upkeep
- Overcrowded pool
- Untrained, too few or negligent lifeguards
- Pool security fence in disrepair
- Defective self closing and self latching gates
- Missing safety lines separating the shallow and deep ends of the pool
