    Compensation for slipping in a sauna


    Compensation for slipping in a sauna

    Going into a sauna should be a pleasurable experience. You should enjoy being able to sweat out your worries and concerns by relaxing in the sauna for a short period of time. The last thing you would probably think of is the chance that you might end up slipping in a sauna.

    For the most part saunas are safe and pleasant to use. They should be cleaned on a regular basis so they are free from bacteria and other substances. They should also be checked regularly to make sure there are no spillages inside on the floor that could lead to someone slipping up while walking into or out of the sauna.

    What injuries could slipping in a sauna lead to?

    One man broke his shoulder after slipping while using a sauna. Since you will be wearing very little apart from a towel when using a sauna, it is perhaps more likely that you’d hurt yourself. The surroundings of a sauna are very unforgiving since you will land on hard wood wherever you fall.

    If it can be proven that the surface of the sauna was slippery and therefore potentially dangerous, this could point to a good case to make for negligence. It can sometimes be difficult to work out whether this would apply in your situation though.

    That’s why many people decide to get some proper no-obligation advice from a professional injury compensation lawyer. It never hurts to find out exactly where you stand with regard to your injuries.

    A duty of care

    This is the most important thing to be aware of. The person who runs the business that provides the use of the sauna has a clear duty to make sure they take care of their staff and customers. This extends to making sure the sauna is clean and tidy for use at all times. If the sauna is irregularly cleaned and isn’t maintained as it should be, there could be a clear case for negligence to be argued.
