Claiming compensation for a shower or bath seat injury

While most of us take a bath or shower without a second thought, there may come a time in our lives when it won’t be as easy to do. Mobility problems can make the simplest of tasks much harder. In these situations it is much better to use mobility equipment such as a seat that is specifically designed to be used in a shower or bath. The person may still need assistance to get in or out, but even if this is the case the seat should make the task safer.

Unfortunately some people have accidents that could have been avoided while using this equipment. These seats are used in supervised care situations and care homes, and in these instances the employees have a duty of care to uphold. While accidents are rare, all precautions should always be taken to prevent anything going wrong. A slip or fall can result in a nasty injury. Some people have suffered from scalds and burns caused by the shower being turned on while they are seated, therefore the temperature of the water isn’t checked before coming into contact with the seated person.
