Swimming Pool Accident Lawyers In Sacramento
You Are Not In This Alone
Swimming pools are full of hidden dangers. The most prominent is the risk of drowning, especially among children. Several important laws — including the California Swimming Pool Safety Act and the federal Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act — establish requirements for pool owners. Depending on the type and size of pool, these requirements may range from childproof enclosures and proper drain covers to alarms, lifeguards and warning signage. However, public and private pool owners don’t always comply with safety regulations.

Drownings and near-drownings aren’t the only types of accidents that can happen in or near swimming pools.
Serious injuries can also result from:
- Diving board accidents
- Slip-and-fall accidents around the pool’s perimeter
- Ill health effects from improper levels of chlorine and other chemicals
- Electrocution from faulty wiring in pool lights, pumps or heaters
When these tragedies occur, multiple parties might be responsible under a theory of premises liability or negligence. The manufacturer of the pool, pool cover, fence or other components may also be liable. Much depends on the circumstances of the swimming pool accident.
