When you are looking for a personal injury lawyer in Atlanta, know that we can help you. If you have a swimming pool injury in Atlanta, understand that the merits of your case will depend on whether the premises were safe, or the conditions were dangerous and should have been remedied by the property owner.

What is Premises Liability?

Premises liability comes into play when a person has been injured on the property of another person. If the conditions of the property were negligent or unsafe, and an injury occurred, the lawsuit is a viable one.

Swimming pool accidents are personal injury lawsuits that fall under the category of premises liability. If you were injured because a broken ladder, a slide that broke when you were riding it or you tripped on loose concrete on your way into the pool, your case would be considered to be covered under Premises Liability.

If you were invited to a swimming pool party and you were on the premises as an invited guest, the property owner is liable for injuries you sustained because you were hurt on their property. If you were trespassing, the homeowner isn’t responsible for your injuries because they never had the opportunity to tell you about any potential hazards on the property.
