Pool Supervision Requirements
What Type of Supervision Are Business and Pool Owners Required to Provide?
When people own a business or property that can have an impact on the health of others, they have a responsibility to provide as safe an environment as possible. Part of this obligation is to provide proper and skilled supervision where it is required.
When business or property owners fail to live up to this responsibility, whether out of lack of funds or simple oversights, it is usually other people that pay the extreme costs. This is the case if someone slips and falls in a nursing home because there is no nurse nearby, or someone drowns in a pool because there is no lifeguard present.
Some of the injuries that can happen in Florida slip and fall accidents caused by a lack of supervision include:
- Broken hip
- Dislocated shoulder
- Back injuries
- Head injuries
If the slip and fall injury affecting you or your family was caused by a lack of supervision, the other party may be held liable in a court of law. If they are, then you can receive financial compensation for your costs including medical bills, ongoing care, permanent losses, lost wages and much, much more.
We hear heart-breaking stories everyday of older loved ones being injured in deserted nursing home hallways or children drowning in a pool less than 50 feet from the nearest lifeguard chair. If a catastrophic event has struck your family, don’t stand idly by. Take action now.
