The plaintiff, a 15-year-old boy, dove into a four foot above-ground pool and suffered severe injuries resulting in guadriplegia.
He is confined to a wheelchair and lives in a home for severely physically handicapped children. Suit was brought for failure to warn and negligent construction.
In a similar case, a boy suffered serious injuries when he dove into a defectively designed above-ground swimming pool. The case settled for $735,000.
