Making your claim
If you have received an injury after slipping at a hotel swimming pool, you should first report the incident to the hotel manager. The accident report book should be filled out as soon as possible after the incident so that the details are still fresh in your memory. Take a copy of the report home with you too, as you might need it for your compensation claim. In the case of a slip or fall, there may be no need to involve the police, but in the case of a serious incident, it is a good idea to also report it to them. A police investigation could help with a claim where gross negligence is a factor.
The hotel has to prove that it has taken all reasonable precautions to ensure guest safety around the pool area. This could be done in any number of ways, such as leaving ‘Wet Floor’ notices by the pool, or having a lifeguard on duty at all times. It is also a good idea, if possible, to take photographs of the area where the accident occurred, as soon as the accident happens. This makes it easier for the injured party to prove that such precautions were not being taken at the time of the accident.
Involving Accident Advice Helpline could not be easier. It just involves a simple telephone call. We will take all your details and advise you on the best course of action in order to proceed with your claim. We take all of the stress and worry out of it for you by liaising with all of the parties involved, collating the information and processing the claim. It is important to point out that there may be fees payable from any compensation amount awarded to you, but we work on a no win, no fee* basis.
In addition, you can call us at any time, night or day. Our 24-hour free helpline on 0800 689 0500 is staffed by experts and our professional lawyers are on hand to answer any questions that you may have.
