Do you need to make a ‘no win, no fee*’ Gravesham claim after being hurt whilst using a waterslide?
Whilst some local swimming pools merely offer a standard pool for members to use, some leisure centres have water themed play areas for adults and children alike. With a range of different pools and waterslides, these pools and leisure complexes are extremely popular and can provide a great day out.
In addition to waterslides, many of these pools also feature jets and whirlpools, as well as jacuzzis and smaller pools for younger children. Whilst these can be fun to play in, they can also help people to strengthen their swimming skills.
Of course, whenever you go swimming you should be extra careful and ensure that children are supervised at all times. It can only take seconds for someone to slip under water and if they are unable to swim or get their footing, they may find it difficult to get back to the surface.
Although most pools do have a number of lifeguards on duty at any one time, it is possible that they could miss a child or adult who is in trouble in the water. It can be particularly difficult to patrol pools with slides, jets and shutes as they are likely to be busy and noisy.
In order to try and avoid any accidents occurring, it’s absolutely essential that the complex owners or managers regularly clean the pool and the fittings and that they are checked for safety. For example, a waterslide may need regular maintenance to ensure that it remains safe. If this isn’t done and someone is hurt as a result, it’s highly likely that they will be able to make a ‘no win, no fee*’ Gravesham compensation claim.
As well as ensuring that the pool and poolside areas are safe, the complex managers must also ensure that other areas of the buildings are kept clean and safe. For example, they may place anti-slip matting in the changing rooms so that people don’t slip on the tiles on their way back from the pool.
