    Can I claim for a water volleyball accident?

    If you have been injured while playing water volleyball, you may be wondering, ‘can I claim for a water volleyball accident?’ Call Accident Advice Helpline today for the answers to all your questions about making a personal injury claim.

    The law says that you are entitled to compensation if your water volleyball accident was caused by the negligence of others and has caused you to suffer financially. Claims must be made within three years of your accident. Call us now to start your claim.

    Proving negligence

    Often an accident is not anyone’s fault. At other times you may not be sure if the accident was caused by the negligence of a third party. If you are not sure ask yourself if there was any way to prevent your accident, and if a third party should have taken those steps.

    For example, if you are injured because poor maintenance of the pool caused you to trip on damaged tiles then the fault lies with the owner of the pool who had a responsibility to keep the pool in a good state of repair.

    Another example is if you contract an illness because good hygiene standards were not maintained at the pool. Again the pool owner has a clear responsibility to make sure that the pool is regularly cleaned, and that the correct chemicals are added to the pool to kill infection and that the filter is working correctly.

    Collecting evidence

    If you proceed with a claim your solicitor will need evidence to back up your claim. The most important evidence is medical evidence.

    You can help your solicitor by recording as much detail as possible about your accident and by getting the names and contact details of any witnesses.

    Keep records and receipts of all the costs of your accident, from small amounts such as prescription charges, to large amounts like weeks or months when you are unable to work. If you are not sure if an expense is relevant keep a receipt and ask your solicitor.
