Homeowners or pool owners (including pools on private property such as condominiums and apartment complexes) are required to take procedural measures to protect visitors from any foreseeable harm. Similar to Slip and Fall Cases, with Swimming Pool Injuries and Accidents, the Ontario Occupiers’ Liability Act stipulates the duties that home owners and owners of pools must ensure that they take reasonable care to ensure that their visitors are reasonably safe and protected.
Pool owners or homeowner may found negligent if they fail to keep the pool area safe or inaccessible. Supervision of the pool is a must, and if anyone is injured including children, owners can be found liable for injuries or accident drowning.
