HOA Pool Accident Attorneys
Holding Homeowners Associations Accountable for Swimming Pool Accidents
Many people associate having access to a pool with fun summer days. However, each year, thousands of people nationwide experience the darker side of pools. Drowning or near-drowning accidents destroy lives and cause pain to victims’ families. The Centers for Disease Control has identified drowning as the number one accidental cause of death for children between the ages of one and four. Between 2005 and 2014, there were 3,536 unintentional drownings. When accidents aren’t deadly, they often have serious consequences: more than half of all drowning victims require hospitalization.
While drownings and other pool accidents sometimes happen at private residences, many occur at pools within gated communities or condominium complexes. When an accident happens in one of these areas, the homeowner’s association in charge of the pool is typically responsible. This is because HOAs oversee the proper maintenance and safety of a community pool. If your family lost a loved one in an HOA pool drowning accident, call Arnold & Itkin today. Our drowning accident attorneys have won billions for clients and have the resources and history of success to help you obtain the compensation that you deserve.

How Are HOAs Responsible for Drowning Accidents?
Pools help homeowners’ associations because they increase the value of a community and attract new residents. By installing a pool, HOAs make themselves legally and financially responsible for their safety and maintenance in gated communities or condos. When an HOA neglects pool safety, residents pay the steepest prices through injuries and the loss of their loved ones to drowning accidents.
Homeowners’ Associations are also responsible for the following:
- Making sure the pool is fenced with gates that securely close
- Fixing uneven concrete
- Ensuring the hours of operation are firmly enforced
- Posting safety requirements
- Ensuring that all features of the pool are up to local safety codes
What to Do After an Accident at an HOA-Owned Pool
If you or a loved one suffered from an accident at an HOA-owned pool, the association might offer you an initial settlement. However, this settlement is likely in the best interest of the HOA or its insurance provider. Instead, you should call the HOA pool accident attorneys from Arnold & Itkin.

We won’t settle for less than you need, fighting for the justice that your family deserves. While no amount of money can make up for what you’ve suffered, the people who caused it should be held financially and legally accountable for the hardships you’ve suffered.
