Most people would agree that it’s jolly good fun to make use of a water slide every now and then, regardless of how old they are. If given the choice between the two, you’d probably find that most people would choose a leisure centre that had its own flume, over one that did not any day of the week.
But what would happen if you were to suffer an injury as result of an accident that was not your fault while on a water slide? If a relatively new slide with a design fault should cause you to suffer a whiplash injury in Carshalton, you might well have a personal injury case on your hands. You might also be able to take action if you were injured as result of a maintenance issue that made a water slide unsafe to use or if the behaviour of another user resulted in you being hurt. All you’ll need to do is retain the services of a top 100% ‘no win, no fee’ whiplash injury lawyer in Carshalton.
Water slides and a whiplash injury in Carshalton
After hearing that your local leisure centre has just completed a renovation project that included the addition of a water slide, you decide to go along and check it out. After paying your entrance fee, using the changing rooms and putting your clothing away in a secure locker, you make your way through to the slide area. It looks impressive, but you think to yourself that one of the bends in the flume looks a tad on the sharp side.
You take your concerns to a member of staff, saying you suspect that rounding the bend could cause someone to suffer a whiplash injury. You are told that the slide has been designed by professionals, and there is absolutely no chance of this happening. “Fair enough,” you think to yourself, admitting that you are no expert on such matters.
You have a go on the slide, and notice that your head did jerk to the side when you took the corner. You don’t feel any immediate pain, so don’t mention anything to leisure centre staff. However, sometime later you start to develop a pain in your neck. You see a doctor, who tells you that you have indeed suffered a whiplash injury in Carshalton.
You later get word that the leisure centre you visited has closed the slide for alterations to be made to it after a similar fate befell other visitors. Under these circumstances, it might be an idea to call Accident Advice Helpline to find out if you could have a personal injury claim on your hands.
