    Compensation for an accident at a hotel swimming pool

    One thing many hotels have is a swimming pool. While this doesn’t always apply it is good news when staying at a hotel to discover there is a pool for your use. This will usually be provided free of charge during your stay, providing you with an opportunity to wind down, get some exercise or simply have a refreshing dip.

    Very few people are ever the victims of an accident at a hotel swimming pool. As is the case with the rest of the premises, the pool area should be safe and well-maintained. This means it should be perfectly safe to use it and to be confident in doing so. There should be no reason why you should be in any danger of being at risk of having an accident at a hotel swimming pool.

    Examples of things that might occur

    Obviously you would expect the area around the pool to be wet. However you wouldn’t expect it to be slippery. However this might be the case if the floor surrounding the pool isn’t cleaned at regular intervals. If this isn’t done it could potentially allow mould to grow and develop. You may not initially see this but it could be very slippery.

    In other cases you might end up cutting your foot on a broken tile if there is one either in the pool itself or running around the edge. Broken tiles can be very sharp and can lead to nasty injuries, particularly if bacteria in the area gets into the cut and infects it.

    Have you had a similar accident you believe was caused by negligence?

    An accident at a swimming pool could potentially be quite serious. It would be very easy to slip and crack your head on a tile, or perhaps even knock yourself out and fall into the pool. Thankfully very few incidents like this ever happen, but there are times when things can go wrong. If this is the case there could potentially be a problem that might lead to compensation for you.
