    Accident solicitor in Lee Valley Park

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Lee Valley Park

    You may be wondering what exactly a sports accident solicitor in Lee Valley Park does. You may think that all sports accidents are just that – unfortunate accidents and there is no need to consult a sports accident solicitor in Lee Valley Park or other legal firm. This is actually not true.

    Claiming with Accident Advice Helpline or an accident solicitor in Lee Park

    Many sports accidents are indeed accidents and no-one is to blame. However, in a proportion of accidents someone was to blame and then a claim for compensation may be started.

They have a unique 30 second test and highly trained advisors who will give you all the information that you need. Just give them a call on 0800 689 0500 or from your mobile on 0333 500 0993.

    Although Accident Advice Helpline do not have access to a local accident solicitor in Lee Park they can still represent you and your claim. This is because they are a national firm that works across the whole of the UK. So if you need an injury solicitor anywhere in the UK, look no further than this expert service.

    Here are some cases that a sports accident solicitor may become involved in.

    Swimming pools

    Swimming is usually a gentle and safe sport but accidents can happen in and around the swimming pool. Many children enjoy swimming and so children can become injured in swimming pool accidents. The sports injury experts at Accident Advice Helpline deal with many types of claims including:

    •   Injuries that can be attributed to inadequate warning signs and supervision. This includes inappropriate behaviour by other pool users that has not been spotted or stopped by the lifeguard.

    •  Broken, worn or poorly maintained floors, walls and ceilings. The surfaces around swimming pools get a lot of wear and tear. They have to be suitable (hard wearing) and regularly checked.

    •  The concentration of chlorine in swimming pool water has to be very carefully maintained. If there is not enough chlorine dangerous germs (e.g. Cryptosporidium) can live in the water and make people ill. If the concentration of chlorine is too high then bathers will suffer eye irritation and skin burning which is very unpleasant.

    Accidents at the gym

    Many people who live around Lee Valley Park like to go to the gym. Health and safety precautions are usually put in place in gyms to protect the people using the facilities. Gyms are public areas and so have all the usual hazards that any public area can have such as:

    •  Stair cases Lifts

    •  Escalators

    •  Electrical appliances

    •  Uneven or worn flooring

    All of these are potential hazards – they can cause serious injuries. Gyms also have specialist equipment. Some electrical (e.g. running machines and cross trainers) and some mechanical (weights). Both can be potentially hazardous if they are not maintained properly and if people are not given instruction in how to use them safely.
