Have you been injured in a public place in Waveney?
Swimming is both a popular sport and a popular hobby in the United Kingdom. Whilst many people compete at amateur and professional levels, there are a significant number of people who merely swim recreationally.
With numerous swimming clubs available for children and young people, swimming can be a great way to increase fitness levels whilst having fun. In addition to this, teaching young children to swim can prove to be life-saving if they were ever to fall into a body of water or were struck by a strong current whilst in the sea.
Although swimming is generally a safe way to exercise and keep fit, pool managers and leisure centre owners must ensure that the pool itself, and the poolside area, are kept safe. If, for example, the steps into the pool weren’t fixed to the pool walls correctly, they could potentially come loose and someone could slip or fall and sustain an injury as a result. Similarly, if the tiles aren’t kept clean, they could become even more slippery and someone could easily suffer an accident.
In addition to preventing physical injuries from occurring, pool staff must ensure that no-one becomes ill because of the chemicals used in the pool. By using the right amount of chlorine in the water, they can help to prevent infection and bacteria spreading but if they use too much people could become ill as a result. Due to this, it’s essential that the chlorine levels are monitored regularly.
If you’ve been hurt or injured in a public place in Waveney, you may wish to make personal injury claims against the company responsible. If the water was carrying bacteria or causing people to become ill, it’s likely that more than one person will be affected so making Waveney personal injury claims could be fairly easy.
