Pool Injuries Due to Slippery Surfaces and Poor Maintenance

Many pool injuries are the result of someone else’s negligence. Along with pool and spa ownership comes great responsibility to guests that will use these items, including following all local, state, and federal regulations. Improper chemical and pH balance, sanitation, failure to maintain the filter and keep algae and bacteria growth under control are amongst the most common causes of a surface that is simply too slippery to walk on without slipping and falling. Additionally, all pools should be fenced at all times when not in active use and under proper supervision. There are many issues that contribute to these types of accidents. If carelessness or negligence contributed to your accident, contact our law firm for a free initial consultation to discuss your claim.
