Water volleyball injuries
Accidents while playing water volleyball are often caused by problems with the venue. Water volleyball is usually played in swimming pools. These might be public swimming pools or pools attached to a hotel or holiday park. It is important that strict safety standards are maintained at these pools to minimise the risk of injury.
Swimming pools should be well maintained to reduce the risk of injury in and around the pool. A trip on a cracked tile, for example, could result in you acquiring a serious head injury if you hit the side of the pool.
Pools should be kept clean and filtered to avoid the risk of illness being contracted while playing water volleyball. It is important that the correct amount of chemicals are used to keep the pool clean. Too little and you could contract a disease, too much and you could suffer a chemical injury. These chemicals should be securely stored to avoid the risk of accidents.
After an accident
If you are injured while playing water volleyball you should seek medical attention as soon as possible. Hopefully, with the correct treatment you will soon recover from your injuries. If you need to make a personal injury claim medical evidence of your injuries and the treatment you received will be vital.
As soon as you feel able, record as much information as you can about the accident and find out the names or contact details of any witnesses. Your solicitor may need to get in touch with them about witness statements.
Now that most mobile phones have cameras photographic evidence is increasingly used when making personal injury claims. If you can see the hazard that caused your injury ask someone if they can take a photograph. Also let your solicitor know if any spectators were filming or taking photographs of the water volleyball game. A copy of these may contain evidence to back your claim.
