Should a lifeguard be held accountable for my child’s pool injury?
It depends. Not every swimming pool guarantees that its lifeguards are responsible for the safety of children, and not every pool even has a lifeguard. Typically some sort of negligence on the behalf of the lifeguard or the pool’s manager must have occurred to be able to hold them accountable for the injury. Premises liability cases such as this can be difficult to understand, so the best way to know what your legal options are to discuss the particulars with an experienced personal injury attorney from Crowe & Mulvey, LLP.
