Texas Pool Regulation Attorneys
One reason our clients turn to our firm and seek the advice of our experienced attorneys is that it can be difficult to make sense of the law following a serious pool accident. With different laws at the local, state and federal levels, many families of accident victims are left with more questions than answers when the dust settles. Few things are more frustrating for a family coping with serious accident-related injuries than the stress caused by the question, “What are my legal rights?”

We offer a free consultation so you can find out if you can pursue compensation for the medical expenses, pain and suffering that your child and family have to endure.

Understanding The Laws Designed To Protect You And Your Family
Congress passed the Pool and Spa Safety Act in 2007. This requires certain types of drain covers to be installed on all residential pools to prevent people – especially children – from being trapped underwater, where they can suffer severe injuries and even death from drowning.
While there is no state law that comprehensively addresses pool safety, Houston and other cities in the area have enacted local laws to require adequate, self-closing and self-locking fences around below-ground and above-ground pools. Because local laws vary by city, it is important to talk with an experienced attorney to determine whether a violation actually occurred.
