Yes, you do have legal rights if you suffered serious drowning injuries while swimming in a pool due to a defective pool drain cover. Whether it’s a residential pool or a hotel, resort, country club, or private swimming pool, the pool owner and/or facility is liable for maintaining proper maintenance on their pool, which includes a pool drain cover. If injury or drowning death results in a swimming pool due to a defective pool drain cover, the pool owner or facility may be liable and the injured victim or surviving family members may be able to pursue a claim on their behalf.
More often than the public thinks, pool drain cover drowning accidents occur quite frequently and when a pool drain cover is off or defective it can be quite hazardous. This is because a pool drain acts as a vacuum and when the cover is not properly on the drain an individual can be sucked down under the surface of the water and be held down due to the vacuum force.
