Swimming Pool Accident

I’M NOT SURE IF MY INJURY IS SERIOUS ENOUGH

Except in very minor injuries, it is very rare to not have some degree of incapacity after your accident.

Even a simple injury to your hand could make ordinary household chores and personal care, more difficult to do. A sprained ankle could mean that you are unable to get around as easily. In such circumstances, you will need assistance from your relatives and friends.

Good news is that any assistance that you receive will potentially be possible to recover from the Defendant as part of a claim for compensation

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?

  1. Ensure that the injured person is moved away from any danger or hazards and get first aid if needed.
  2. Record as much information as you can at the scene of your accident. If you have fallen, take photographs of the defect that caused you to trip and fall. If needed, use a ruler to show the height/depth of the defect.
    Some evidence may not be available later if you wish to make an accident claim for personal injury compensation.
  3. Report the incident to the manager or the owner of the swimming pool. You might be asked to fill out an accident form or manager will record an incident in an accident book. If there is no accident book, you should write out brief details of the accident and injuries, send them and keep a copy. It’s your responsibility to make sure that an accident is recorded!
  4. Seek medical attention and treatment either at a hospital or from your local GP as soon as possible following your accident. Even if you think no medical treatment is needed, some injuries may not be immediately apparent.
    The doctor also will record your injuries and this will help during the claim process.
  5. Try to find the witness of your accident and take their contact details.

WHAT WILL LITKRAFT NEED FROM YOU?

  • the date of the accident, where and how it happened;
