    How to claim swimming pool injury compensation


    Many people love swimming. For many it is a great way to get some exercise and keep fit, although of course you can splash about and have some fun as well. In every case though, you’d be entitled to expect the pool was in good condition for you to use. No one would want to be injured when using a swimming pool, especially when they had been taking good care to act appropriately and follow all the safety procedures at all times.

    Swimming pool injury compensation may be paid out in cases where people are injured through no fault of their own. For example, if you went to a swimming pool and you hit your head because you slid over on a section of tiles that was slippery and unclean, this might lead to a successful claim.

    What else could happen?

    Another area of potential concern could be the swimming pool itself. They are usually tiled to provide a smooth surface and safe place to swim. However, if the tiles are in poor condition there is a chance they could be dangerous to step on. Since you have bare feet you might end up cutting your foot on a broken tile, since these can be very sharp if they are left in place.

    This type of injury would clearly not be your fault – it would be down to the negligence of the people who were running the pool facilities. They should check the area surrounding the pool – and of course the pool itself – on a regular basis. If they do not repair any broken tiles and leave them to potentially cause this kind of accident, you could end up being hurt as a result.

    Do you have a strong case for compensation?

    You may have if you have been injured like this and the injury took place within the last two years. You may find you are entitled to an amount in compensation dependant on the injuries you experienced.
