Diving and Swimming Pool Accidents

Swimming and diving in backyard pools and clubs is always a wonderful recreational activity, especially during the summer. Apartment complexes, homeowners associations, hotels and motels often provide these amenities that so many of us enjoy. However, each one of these entities also has a legal responsibility to provide a safe environment and maintain these pool facilities in a safe condition to avoid injuries, or worse, death.

Liability for Swimming Pool Accidents

If you or a loved one has suffered a diving injury or been injured in a swimming pool accident in Tennessee, you may be able to file a "premises liability" claim against the owner of the pool or the property owner if you can prove:

Parties Responsible for Swimming Pool Accidents

Pool owners and operators of pools have a duty to exercise reasonable care to prevent accidents to persons using their facilities. A breach of this duty gives rise to liability for any personal injuries sustained as a result of the owner's or operator's negligent conduct.

Manufacturers of pool parts and contractors may be liable under Tennessee's products liability laws. A plaintiff could make out a claim for products liability, for example, if the diving accident was caused by a defective diving board.

Owners of the property enclosing the swimming pool may also be liable under a premises liability theory. Typically, a premises owner is liable when he or she fails to maintain his or her property in a good condition or fails to warn visitors about an existing hazard for which he or she was aware or should have been aware.
