Charlotte Swimming Pool Injury Attorney

Owners and operators of swimming pools owe a duty of care not only to people whom they invite to use the pool, but also to the general public. A swimming pool in a backyard may be considered an “attractive nuisance,” particularly with respect to young children who might enter the yard. Homeowners are expected to provide protections such as the following:

  • Fencing
  • Gates
  • Locks
  • Alarms
  • Lifesaving devices
  • “No trespassing” signs
  • Verbal warnings to invited guests as needed

North Carolina has a Residential Code which governs the types of precautionary measures which should be in place around swimming pools. It is important to know which version of the Residential Code may be applicable to a given pool to determine whether the property owner was in compliance.

Children in particular are at risk around swimming pools, and a property owner may be responsible for failing to supervise children around a pool if such lack of supervision results in serious injury or the tragic loss of a child.

Brown Moore & Associates, PLLC, offers experienced, knowledgeable legal counsel to people who have suffered injuries or lost family members in drowning accidents in manmade bodies of water, including the following:

  • Home backyard swimming pools
  • School swimming pools
  • Public swimming pools
  • Wading pools in parks
  • Swimming pools at golf and country clubs
  • Beaches maintained by private or government entities
  • Hot tubs

We have a history of success representing victims of aquatic injuries and fatalities, including spinal cord injuries caused by diving. When we take a swimming injury case, we look at factors such as the following:

  • Did the land owner properly secure the pool to prevent children from entering and drowning?
  • Was the surface around the pool slip-resistant to prevent serious slip-and-fall injuries?
  • Was adequate signage in place advising of the depth of a swimming pool?
  • Did public pool managers follow regulations such as proper chemical balance in the water to prevent e-coli infections?

Was Alcohol a Factor in Your Swimming Pool Injury?

Sometimes when we investigate swimming pool accidents, we discover that alcohol abuse was a factor. We look into all aspects of an accidental drowning or near-drowning in which drunkenness was involved. Dram shop laws may apply if a commercial vendor of alcohol continued to serve beer and wine to obviously drunk swimmers. Drunk motor boating — just as illegal as drunk driving — may also be a factor when boat passengers or skiers are injured in lakes and rivers. A skilled personal injury lawyer examines all angles of a swimming-related injury in pursuit of sources of compensation for an accident victim or surviving family members.
