    Water volleyball injury advice


    Accident Advice Helpline is here for you if you need water volleyball injury advice and information on how to make a personal injury claim.

    Water volleyball accidents

    Water volleyball is played in swimming pools in teams and is a fun activity sometimes organised by holiday companies. If you are injured playing water volleyball and the accident was not your fault you may be entitled to compensation.

    Water volleyball accidents are often caused by hazards at the venue. Swimming pools can be dangerous environments if safety guidelines are not followed.

    One accident that may occur during water volleyball is a trip on a cracked tile at the bottom of the pool. If this occurs you could suffer a head injury by hitting your head on the side of the pool. It is important that swimming pools are well maintained and free of trip hazards to prevent accidents.

    Swimming pools should be kept filtered and regularly cleaned to avoid infection. If the filter is not working the pool is not clean, or the incorrect chemicals are used then the swimming pool owners may be considered liable if you become ill after playing water volley ball in their pool.

    Evidence to back your claim

    To successfully make a personal injury claim your solicitor will need a range of evidence. Medical evidence of your injuries and the impact they have had on you is very important, so you must consult a doctor if you are injured while playing water volleyball.

    Record as much information as you can about your accident and find out the names and contact details of any witnesses. Your solicitor may need to speak to them about your accident.

    Let us know if any spectators were taking photographs or filming the water volleyball game. These may contain evidence that will back your claim.
