Many people in Hawaii and elsewhere enjoying visiting friends who have swimming pools. Hours of leisure and recreation are often shared around backyard pools, as well as those found at community locations or commercial hotels and resorts. However, when things go wrong and swimming pool accidents occur due to owner negligence, those adversely affected may wonder where to turn for help in pursuing justice against those deemed liable.
Property owners are responsible for the safety of their visitors. They are obligated to make every effort to keep grounds free of obstacles and debris that may pose a risk to those who walk there. Where swimming pools are concerned, various types of negligence may place guests in danger.
