Swimming Pool Accidents

The owners of swimming pools, like all property owners, are responsible for accidents that occur on their premises. At the Cambridge law firm of Clark, Hunt, Ahern & Embry, we provide experienced representation for clients in cases involving public swimming pools, hotel pools, commercial water parks and residential swimming pools. Our attorneys work to recover compensation for the medical bills, lost wages and other expenses as a result of these accidents.

The operation of swimming pools and hot tubs requires an adherence to guidelines regarding the supervision and covering of pools, especially those that are left unattended without lifeguards. This may include providing a fence around the pool, providing safety warnings and rules, keeping the pool properly covered or other reasonable steps that could prevent people from being harmed.
