Phoenix, AZ (April 10, 2022) – A 15-year-old boy is in critical condition after almost drowning in an apartment complex pool in Phoenix on Sunday, April 10th.
Upon their arrival at the complex, located near the corner of Grover Avenue and 27th Avenue, responders found the boy unresponsive with a civilian performing CPR on him.
He was taken to a local hospital in critical condition.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Injuries on Private Property in Arizona
An apartment complex is considered private property and, as such, is liable for the safety of its tenants and authorized guests. Individuals on the premises will fall under one of three classifications:
- Paying guests (Invitees)
- Social guests (Licensees)
- Persons not legally allowed on the property (Trespassers)
Tenants whose lease is in good standing and their visitors are invitees. They are permitted to use the complex’s facilities, such as the pool, in accordance with the rules, and entitled to the highest standard of care. If you were injured at a swimming pool on private property, like an apartment complex, or a family member drowned, you have to determine what, if any, duty of care you were owed. After that has been established, you will be able to go ahead with a premises liability claim.
In order to be legitimate, a premises liability case must have one or more of the below-listed elements. The more of these elements you can prove, the stronger it will be.
- The manager/owner of the apartment complex was aware of the danger and neglected to inform tenants or address the issue
- The manager/owner of the apartment complex is answerable for the risk or dangerous condition
- The manager/owner of the apartment complex was unaware of the hazard but, had they been conscientious of their tenant’s safety, would have known about it
