Perrysburg Swimming Pool Accident Lawyer

Pool fences have specific regulations that must be met for pools of all types – public, private, residential, hotel, and motel. The reason for such regulations is to help prevent drowning accidents by keeping children out of pool areas when they are not meant to be there.

If a pool fence is defective, it may not serve its purpose of providing safety. It may not meet the defined standards if it is not maintained properly, or if it simply was not installed correctly. If a pool fence has not met
