Public Pool Injury
Slip and Fall at a Public Pool
From time to time, we have gotten calls from clients who were injured when they slipped on floor surfaces or decks, either at a local pool or at a school. Those kinds of cases are very challenging because, by their very nature, those surfaces can be expected to be wet. Some issues do arise – such as when certain areas are wet when they should be dry walkways, or when they’re not maintained, or when entrance areas near exterior doors become treacherous because one can expect water, snow, or ice, to be tracked in. The exceptions to that general rule make it very challenging to bring a claim for a premises liability case, such as one in which water has accumulated around a pool deck or an area like that.
