Premises Liability for Accidents in Texas
Swimming pools are extremely desirable to own. Many apartment complexes throughout our state offer swimming areas for tenants and their guests. Although it is crucial that parents and adults keep a watchful eye on children, there are many instances where negligence is the cause of devastating injuries for swimmers. When people are careless and negligent with ensuring that their swimming area is safe for guests, they can be held liable for any injuries or damages. Many victims harmed in premises liability incidents involving swimming pools are left with life-altering injuries such as:
- Brain damages
- Organ failure
- Cardiac arrest
Property owners throughout Texas are required to maintain safe premises for customers and guests. Unfortunately, there are numerous cases where victims suffer life-altering injuries due to the reckless and negligent actions of others. Drowning incidents can lead to permanent brain damage, spinal cord injuries, and various other life-changing injuries that require long-term care and treatment. In many cases, victims are left permanently disabled as a result of their injuries.
