When we think of swimming pools we think fun in the sun and barbecues. Most people will be able to enjoy swimming pools for many years and never see any incidents. However as we have seen here at Miller and Jacobs swimming pool injuries are frequent especially with children.

Pool injuries and deaths can be prevented and so it is the pool owner’s responsibility whether it be a hotel, apartment complex or recreational complex to secure their pools to prevent harm. If you have been seriously injured or know someone who has been seriously injured or killed due to the negligence of a pool owner you could have a legal claim against the property. You would then also be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering or in this case wrongful death.
