Hurt by a slide at the swimming pool
Swimming pools can get very busy, so it’s incredibly important that health and safety regulations are followed at all times. Examples of accidents, injuries and illnesses at and resulting from the use of swimming pools we’ve helped people get compensation for include gastric illnesses, falls that occurred because of inadequate supervision, near-drowning episodes, cuts, broken bones and more.
Many claims result from swimming pools because of faulty equipment and inadequate signage. A large number of accidents happen because lifeguards aren’t paying attention or don’t have the experience or training needed to carry out their duties sufficiently. The amount of compensation paid out will depend on various factors such as the severity of the injuries and the cost of the accident. You do not need any money to start a claim with us, and we work on a no-win, no-fee* basis. If your child was hurt in a publicly-owned swimming pool and it wasn’t their fault, the council will normally be liable. Should they come to harm in a privately-owned pool, the owners will be held responsible.
