Water is the essence of our existence and can make us feel relaxed and at ease, whether it’s next to a river, at the seaside, or in a luxurious jacuzzi. However, water can also be a dangerous hazard in the wrong circumstances. If you have suffered a water-related injury in the last three years that was not your fault, you could be entitled to get compensation.
Always look before you leap
To minimise the risk of injuries like slips and falls when diving, take your time. Don’t make any hasty decisions and check to make sure the water beneath you is deep enough and free of obstructions like rocks. The more you practise, the more you can improve your techniques and avoid any future falls or trips.
Take it one step at a time
Don’t attempt to dive from a height of 20 metres unless you’ve already dived at 10 metres. Get someone else to monitor your posture and technique when you are diving, preferably an experienced or professional diver, or someone with a good eye for detail.
If you’ve suffered an accident that was someone else’s fault, you could get compensation
From a car crash claim to a work accident claim, injury victims can seek compensation for all kinds of accidents, as long as the incidents were someone else’s fault. In the past, non-fault injury victims have been able to claim compensation for injuries and slips, falls or trips caused by broken tiles in swimming pools, while others have been awarded compensation after suffering accidents at work involving faulty equipment.
