    Can you claim if you catch a bacterial infection from a public pool or hot tub?


    Have you had a bacterial infection from a public pool or hot tub? If so, we may be able to help you get compensation. When swimming pools don’t contain enough chlorine, they can become breeding grounds for infections. Do you suspect your infection happened because the facilities weren’t being managed properly? If so, there’s a very good chance we will be able to help you get compensation.

    Have you had a bacterial infection from a public pool or hot tub?

    Swimming pools can become contaminated when things like blood, urine, faeces and skin cells enter them. It’s vital that enough chlorine is added to pools so pathogenic bacteria cannot grow and put swimmers in danger. If the water in the pool is cloudy, contains debris or is emitting an unpleasant aroma, it may have become contaminated.

    If you enter a contaminated pool, you could sustain a gastrointestinal illness. If you already have a weak immune system or certain existing health problems, you could face a serious illness. Giardia can result from using a contaminated pool. Symptoms of this illness can include fever, lowered energy, vomiting and diarrhoea. E coli can also arise from contaminated pools and is especially harmful to children. It can even be fatal.

    At Accident Advice Helpline, we may be able to help you claim if you or your child catch a bacterial infection from a public pool or hot tub.
