    Home Jacuzzi injury advice

    A Jacuzzi is a place to relax and unwind, and doing so has many proven health benefits. However, there are also risks involved in spending time in a Jacuzzi, which is why it’s worth seeking home Jacuzzi injury advice following an accident. If you were injured in a Jacuzzi due to a manufacturing or fitting fault, you may be able to claim compensation via the services of a reputable law firm such as Accident Advice Helpline.

    Risks of a home Jacuzzi

    The most common injuries in a home Jacuzzi are trips and falls. Long hair and other body parts can sometimes get caught in the intake suction, causing injury or the possibility of being trapped underwater leading to drowning. Hot water can cause burns or scalds, or drowsiness leading to the risk of drowning. There is also the possibility of electrocution due to a fault with the electrical mechanism of the Jacuzzi while you’re immersed in water. Electric shock can cause temporary paralysis leading to further dangers, and electrical faults have even been known to cause Jacuzzis to burst into flames.

    To keep your Jacuzzi safe you should consider lining it with a slip-resistant surface, such as a rubber mat, and limiting the amount of time you spend in the Jacuzzi. You should always get out if you start to feel drowsy. Also, be sure not to let the water become too hot. Suction pipes should be properly covered and you should consider regular professional safety checks.

    If your Jacuzzi is faulty

    Even if you follow all of the safety precautions listed above, you could still suffer a nasty accident in your home Jacuzzi if the product is at fault. Electrical malfunctions, cracked surfaces and insufficient drainage covers could all cause serious injury through no fault of your own. If you or a member of your family has suffered a home Jacuzzi injury due to a flaw in the manufacturing or fitting of your Jacuzzi, then you should look into making a compensation claim with Accident Advice Helpline.

    What to do next

    The first thing you should obviously do is seek appropriate medical treatment for your home Jacuzzi injury. A full medical report will also be vital evidence in your compensation claim, as will the statements of any witnesses who can say exactly what happened, and why you were not at fault.
