While most swimming pool lawsuits will involve premises liability law – the duty of a property owner to protect visitors and guests from hazardous conditions – litigation of pool accidents might require litigation of other personal injury and negligence considerations as well. For example, the party at primary fault might prove to be the manufacturer or installer of a dangerously defective diving board, or a maintenance company that failed to instruct its employees in the proper use and storage of pool chemicals.
