Call Accident Advice Helpline today if you need the best hot tub injury advice on how to make a personal injury claim. Soaking in a hot tub should be a fun and relaxing experience, and most of the time it is. However, if you should suffer an injury that was not your fault then you may be entitled to compensation. All of our expert solicitors work on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis and are committed to helping victims of injury caused by the negligence of others.
What injuries might I be able to claim compensation for?
Common hot tub injuries include trips and slips in the area around the hot tub. These might cause a range of injuries from cuts and bruises to more serious broken bones, head or back injuries. A faulty thermostat might lead to water becoming much hotter than it should, resulting in burns or a dangerously increased body temperature. Drain suctions that are not properly covered can lead to body parts becoming trapped and injured. If you have suffered one of these hot tub injuries or any other, Accident Advice Helpline may be able to help you.
What should I do if I suffer a hot tub injury?
First and most importantly seek medical advice. Even if your injury is not immediately serious then it is still worth consulting a doctor. Injuries can be more severe than they first appear and water inhalation sometimes does not produce symptoms for hours or even days. As well as helping you recover more quickly, seeking medical advice will also mean that your injuries have been documented and this can help the solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline when making your compensation claim. As soon as you can, record the details of your accident and get the names and contact details of any witnesses. If you know what caused your accident take a photograph of the defective hot tub part or the area where the accident happened.
