Whether in a public pool or private pool, you expect that the environment is going to be a safe one. With the proper safety tools nearby, supervision, and a pool environment that is properly maintained, the chances of injury are generally significantly reduced.

If you have been injured in a swimming pool accident that is the fault of someone else, then you may be able to hold them liable for the damages done to you. An experienced St. Paul personal injury lawyer will be able to help you.
