Malvern Hills Accident Claim Solicitors
School holidays and weekends can be hard on parents, especially as children begin to age. The things they want to do are expensive and tend to be busy whilst the so called “traditional” activities are deemed boring and met with derision.
Thank goodness then for the swimming pool. Wholesome active fun with built in splashing and if the kids are really lucky, a waterslide; swimming has been a firm family favourite for many years.
For the most part, visits to the swimming baths pass without accident or incident. However, in the case that an accident does happen, Malvern Hills accident claim solicitors can be on hand to offer support and access to compensation.
There is no doubting the fact that swimming makes an excellent pastime. Whether you’re an experienced swimmer who wants to move freely or you’re happier splashing around in the shallow end, there’s fun to be had for all.
Best of all, swimming pools are supervised by highly skilled and qualified lifeguards meaning that you and your family can have the peace of mind of knowing that as you enjoy yourself, your safety is being managed.
However, swimming pools and, indeed, any body of water can become a dangerous place. Even the most proficient of swimmers can find themselves in danger and it only takes a small lapse in concentration for an accident to happen.
Examples of common accidents in swimming pools are:
- Slips and trips as a result of wet tiles or floors
- Burns due to hot showers
- Head injuries from jumping or diving into the pool
In many cases, an accident at a swimming pool is simply an accident which could not have been prevented. A person may have been over confident in their own abilities or taken an unnecessary risk with their own health or ignored a warning from the pool owner or management. Any injuries that befell them in this situation are unlikely to be awarded with compensation because the fault for the accident does not lie with a third party such as the pool owner. Malvern Hills accident claim solicitors offer a 30 second test to evaluate each situation and can advise whether a claim is valid.
However, there are other occurrences where the fault may lie with the company who own the pool or one of their employees. For example, a broken tile which then leads to a slip or trip could be found to be the fault of the owner and Malvern Hills accident claim solicitors could attempt to seek compensation.
If an incident were to occur in the pool and an employee apply or attempt to apply poor CPR practices which made a situation worse Malvern Hills accident claim solicitors could seek compensation for the exacerbation of injuries.
