Who Is Liable for a Swimming Pool Accident?
You may be convinced a lifeguard or pool attendant is liable for your incident and your injuries. That may be true. However, another party, like the pool manager, may be liable or share liability. If your accident occurred at a public pool, the government may share liability.
A Lawrenceville swimming pool accident lawyer from our firm can identify who is liable for your accident and damages. Your lawyer can also establish that liability with an insurance company or a judge.
To identify who may be liable in your case, your lawyer will look for examples of negligence in your case. Such an example could be:
- A pool manager not hiring enough lifeguards
- A pool manager failing to train lifeguards thoroughly
- A pool manager not buying sufficient life-saving equipment
- A pool manager ignoring complaints about the pool
- A pool attendant leaving a drain cap loose
- A pool attendant leaving water where there shouldn’t be any
- A pool gate guard letting the pool become overcrowded
- A lifeguard failing in their life-saving duties
To establish the other party was actually negligent, your lawyer will have to show evidence of negligence. In your case, this could be:
- A recent report on lifeguard training
- A recent pool maintenance report
- A report of the lifeguards’ activities the day of the incident
- Footage from a camera in the facility
- Photos of the pool area
- Prior incident reports
- Prior reports of issues with the facility
- A statement from a witness of the incident
To establish the other party’s liability completely, your lawyer must also show the four elements of negligence in your case, which are:
- Duty of care (The party’s responsibilities to you)
- Breach of duty (The party’s irresponsibility)
- Causation (The link between responsibility and the incident)
- Damages (Your losses)

How Your Lawyer Will Resolve Your Case for You
Once your lawyer has prepared your case for you, your lawyer will present it to the other party and their insurer. Afterwards, your lawyer will negotiate with the insurer for a fair settlement that covers your damages. Your lawyer will negotiate in good faith and expect the insurer to do the same.
If the insurer doesn’t make a fair settlement offer, your lawyer will argue your case more assertively, and if the insurer still doesn’t cooperate, your lawyer can be more aggressive. For example, your lawyer can threaten to sue the other party and even the insurer if they deny liability.
Your lawyer will understand how liability works in swimming pool accident cases and who is liable in your case. Your lawyer will also understand your situation and that you depend on a fair settlement. You can be sure your lawyer will fight to establish liability and recover your damages even if it means going to a judge for a court verdict.
