    Sometimes fall in bathtub injuries can be serious


    If you’ve ever fallen over in the bath, you’ll know the outcome can be extremely painful. Any fall can be painful, of course, but when you’re in a wet environment that is likely to have tiles in the immediate vicinity, either on the walls or the floor or perhaps both, the result can include several injuries. Fall in bathtub injuries can indeed be serious, in some cases.

    It’s always advisable to take proper care whenever you have a bath, no matter where you are. However, in some situations you might be put at risk through no fault of your own, and you may not even realise until it is too late.

    How might you suffer a fall in bathtub?

    Imagine you’re staying in a hotel or similar establishment, and you slip while getting out of the bath because the floor was already wet. The owners have a duty of care to make sure every room is fit for purpose and safe to use. A wet floor that hadn’t been cleaned and dried properly may constitute negligence.

    Similarly, if you asked for a bath mat and you were not provided with one, later slipping over in the bath and hurting yourself as a result, you might have a chance to claim there as well. And with a slip and a fall in such an awkward space, those injuries might be painful, multiple and perhaps even involve fractures or a bump to the head.

    Was someone else at fault?
