In the summer, it is fun to be able to head out to the back yard and go straight into the pool to cool down. However, to many homeowners having a pool is more than that. It is sign of affluence, and many get the feeling that they've earned something special for their home. But those who have a pool also have a responsibility to make sure that others are safe around it from their own friends and family members to anyone else who might find themselves near the water. Most injuries that would happen in or around a pool fall qualify as premises liability situations.
