Swimming Pool Injury
In Kentucky swimming pool accidents can be the responsibility of the owners of the property. The areas of Kentucky that deal with swimming pool related injures are premises liability laws. Whether the pool is part of an individual homeowner's property or at a setting such as a school, park, neighborhood pool area, hotel, or resort, the property owner has a legal duty to maintain safety and health standards at the pool. Premises liability laws examine who is at fault and why.
In Kentucky, young children will likely not be liable for their own injuries in a swimming pool. This is usually true even if the young child is determined to have been a trespasser on the property where the swimming pool is located. This is because Kentucky law will consider the swimming pool an attractive nuisance to the young child, and thus considered to have lured the child to it, even if wrongfully entering the property to get to the pool.
Swimming pools have a lot of responsibility and liability that comes with them. Many different matters must be considered when looking into who is at fault for swimming pool accidents and the injuries related to such. Because of the complexities involved, it is advised to have an attorney examine the facts surrounding the pool and the injury to determine who is at fault.
