Diving boards present a significant liability to pool owners. In many cases, this type of liability and the potential risks posed by having a diving board is not something most pool owners want to incur. In fact, a large number of private and public pools across the nation no longer have diving boards for visitors and guests to enjoy. Those that do are also likely to have costly insurance policies designed to protect them in case of serious injury or death.
Diving board accidents can often be attributed to:
Failing to adequately supervise the use of a diving board can also lead to rough-housing or other inappropriate pool behavior, which can then lead to serious accidents, injuries and drowning deaths.
