Saunas are becoming increasingly popular and can be found in many locations, such as hotels, leisure centres and swimming pools. Sauna owners have a legal responsibility to maintain their saunas to a high safety standard. If you suffer an accident in a sauna that was not your fault, you may be entitled to compensation.
Sauna accidents can result in a variety of injuries. Slips and trips can cause sprained limbs, broken bones or even serious head and back injuries. The heat of saunas brings its own risks of burns, scalds, heat stroke and even fire. Whatever your injury, Accident Advice Helpline can help you to get the compensation that you are legally entitled to.
Why should I claim compensation?
People often worry about claiming compensation. They are concerned about all the extra inconvenience at a time when they may already be struggling with the physical and emotional recovery from their injuries. They may also worry about causing trouble for the business that owns the sauna.
However, with Accident Advice Helpline you do not need to worry. Our solicitors have many years of experience in personal injury claims and are committed to making the process as easy as possible. They will minimise the disruption for you by carrying out consultations over the phone when possible, so you won’t need to travel and may even be able to settle your case without going to court at all.
In addition, there is no need to feel guilty about troubling the sauna owner. All businesses are required to have insurance, which will cover the compensation. Another benefit is that your claim may well encourage them to review their safety procedures so that another person will not suffer the same sauna accident.
What should I do first?
If you have suffered a sauna accident, make sure that you get medical attention as soon as possible. Medical records of your injury can be used as evidence when making your claim. Keep any receipts for treatment and medication so that we can claim this back for you. As soon as you feel able to, record as many details about your sauna accident as possible, and if there are any witnesses then get their names and contact details. Anything that can help prove that the accident was not your fault will help our expert lawyers in your claim.
Claims for compensation must be made within three years of the accident, so don’t delay! Call our free 24-hour helpline on 0800 689 0500 from a landline or 0333 500 0993 from your mobile. Alternatively, try our 30-second compensation calculator in order to see how much compensation you may be able to claim for your sauna accident.
