Some Arizona cities have pool barrier regulations to prevent child drownings. Arizona homeowners with pools and pool builders need to be familiar with the applicable regulations. For example, within the City of Phoenix, pool barrier options include fences or walls, which must be at least 5 feet tall and at least 20 inches from the waters edge, amongst other things. Gates and latches much be self-closing and self-latching. Latches must be a minimum of 54 inches above ground. Some swimming pool drownings are the result of a gate that was not self-latching or at least failed to latch properly. That is, barriers, gates and latches actually make a difference, which is the reason for the laws. While there is no substitute for proper adult supervision, pool barriers help to prevent child drowning and must be adequately maintained and inspected. When they do not work, children are at risk, and those responsible for the care and safety of children and others may be held civilly liable for resulting damages.

Most Personal Injury Lawsuits arise when a person is hurt by another person’s failure to conform to a particular standard of conduct to protect others against unreasonable risk of harm. That is, most injury cases do not arise from intentional acts, but they arise from negligence, such as when a person fails to drive a motor vehicle safely and causes personal injury to another person.
