Spending time in the swimming pool is one of the most-loved elements of family holidays. Whether you are relaxing at the waters edge or playing with inflatables with the children, it’s a great way to unwind. Although time in the swimming pool can and should be a fun experience, there are myriad potential pool-related injuries to be aware of.
Staying savvy when abroad and vigilant to these risks can minimise the risk of holiday illness and injury. After all, who wants to be worrying about travel accident compensation during their time away?
What are the typical pool-related injuries?
Of course, it’s important to kick back, relax and enjoy the pool time with your family; but, by keeping in mind these potential pool-related injuries you can extend this enjoyment and prevent holiday accidents.
Some typical pool-related injuries include, but are not limited to:
- Contraction of waterborne illness
- Non-fatal submersion injuries
- Traumatic brain injury
- Slips on the poolside
- Lacerations caused by vents or foreign objects
- Falls from slides
In the case that you or a family member suffer from severe pool-related injuries, it is important to seek urgent medical attention, wherever you are in the world.
