There are many hazardous areas in swimming pool buildings which rely heavily on proper health and safety risk assessments and precautions in order to prevent the public from injuries.
Injuries obtained in swimming pool vicinities can include anything from mild, light knocks, cuts and bruises to more severe injuries including allergies, intoxication, suffocation, slip accidents and bone fractures.
Victims who’ve suffered injuries of this nature in swimming pools can apply for a swimming pool injury compensation claim to help cover medical and recuperation expenses you’ve had to pay. Swimming pool compensation claims come under the personal injuries bracket in compensations claims and are one of the most common claims made here in the UK to date.
If you’ve suffered a swimming pool accident which wasn’t your fault you’re entitled to receive compensation.
During the claim process, the court will assess the circumstances in which the injury took place administering whether the injury was due to personal negligence or negligence of the facility owner.
Compensation paid will cover a mixture of expenses including medical expenses and loss of earnings as well as a reward for the inconveniences caused by your swimming pool injury.
The total amount of compensation to be awarded varies depending on the nature of injury, its severity and related loses or inconveniences.
There are several types of swimming pool injuries that are eligible for compensation claims.These include the following:
- Accidents from slipping (slippery floors and surfaces)
- Objects and dangerous items immersed in water causing injury (dirty and poorly maintained pools)
- Toxic pool water (overuse of clarification agents and chlorine) causing eye and skin injury
- Accidents (falling, bumping)
- Suffocation and failed rescue (shortage and/or insufficient training of lifeguards)
- Defective equipment injuries
- Faulty tilling and filtration units causing cuts and injuries
Generally, any accident in and around the swimming pool area caused by building faults and lack of attention paid to health and safety precautions can be claimed against.
