Massachusetts pool owners and operators are financially and legally liable for drowning injuries and deaths that happen as a result of code and safety violations. While each municipality is different, pool owners are typically required to secure their pool with fencing, locks, and lighting that meets specific code requirements. Pool operators are also required to provide a life guard at certain times and to secure their premises as well.
