Swimming is a wonderful form of exercise that usually carries with it far less risk of injury than many other sports. This is because the water supports you and makes it more difficult to strain any muscles. However there can still be potential dangers associated with swimming, especially if you go to a pool where the standards are not as high as they should be.
It’s great to know the vast majority of swimming pools are in excellent condition and are maintained regularly to ensure they stay that way. However, if you have visited a pool in the last three years and experienced a slip around the pool itself, you may realise how nasty any resulting injuries may be from that.
How could you be hurt from a simple slip?
A simple slip it may be, but it can hurt you nonetheless. Think about what might happen if you were to slip on the tiled surface you’ll find around the average communal or public pool. You will have either swimming trunks or a swimming costume on, which means you’ll have little protection from any potential injuries you could end up with. Furthermore you could end up cutting your foot on a broken tile as you slip.
Other injuries that can potentially occur that might result in swimming pool slip compensation being paid could include fractured bones, as a result of hitting the tiled floor. As you can see, something that may sound like a simple accident could end up being something you suffer from for some time to come.
What can you do?
The balance can be redressed by seeking swimming pool slip compensation to be paid out as a result of your injuries.
