Swimming Pool Injury Claims Solicitors
When it comes to swimming pool injury claims, the issue is altogether avoidable in the first place.
The fact remains that you should expect that something as common as being at a public swimming pool is safe and free from danger. But sadly, slips, trips and falls are a frequent event at public venues, including swimming pools. Moreover, there are a host of other accidents you might experience at public swimming pools, which we list below.
The owner, centre manager, and lifeguards in the complex all have a duty of care to ensure swimming pools are safe for the customers and the staff who work there. Legislation like the Occupiers’ Liability Act 1957 clearly sets out their responsibilities.

If you have been injured while you have been at a public swimming pool, talk to The Compensation Experts. This initial inquiry is free, and there is no obligation to proceed with a claim after you have spoken to us.

What is a Claim for a Swimming Pool Accident?
There are many examples of accidents leading to swimming pool injury claims. For example, public swimming pool incidents include these examples below.
- Slipping on wet surfaces;
- Tripping over uneven floors or obstacles left around the poolside;
- Being struck by a falling object;
- Illness as a result of the use, non-use or misuse of certain chemical disinfectants;
- Diving board injuries;
- Broken tiles on the sides or floor of the swimming pools;
- Accidents in swimming pool facility car parks due to poor layouts or bad lighting.
All of these causes are reasonably easy to avoid, in general. However, negligence can occur through:
- Inadequate procedures;
- Insufficient training;
- Being short on staff, or;
- Mere negligence.
Consequently, it can quickly turn what should be a safe and pleasant environment into a perilous one.
Common Types of Injury Leading to Swimming Pool Injury Claims
In short, the amount of compensation for swimming pool injuries will vary from case to case. However, there’s a wide variety of injuries to account for. For example:
- Abrasions or scrapes from a slip or fall;
- Hitting one’s head on a wall or diving board;
- Cuts or abrasions from a broken swimming pool tile or tiles.
Even when you’re abroad, a swimming pool injury claim might occur. For example, tour operators might not give adequate warning about the conditions of the hotel swimming pool.

Loss of Earnings Evidence for Swimming Pool Injury Claims
With swimming pool injury claims, claiming for loss of earnings differs if you are PAYE or self-employed.
Employees need to produce payslips for three months before their accident. If you regularly work overtime, you’ll need to prove overtime would be available to you during this period. For example, if you work in retail and suffer the injury in the Christmas season. As another example, you might work in a beachside cafe during the summer.
Compensation for lost earnings has a typical calculation. In essence, you find the average amount you earn per month for the previous three months. Then, you multiply that by the duration you were unable to work.
If your earnings vary each month, the court can use your last six months as an average.

Claiming Compensation for an accident in a public swimming pool
In essence, starting a compensation claim against owners of a public swimming pool, leisure centre or any large organisation feels like an insurmountable task. If you are still recovering physically, that’s especially the case. But The Compensation Experts are here to help you from your initial consultation to the resolution of your claim.
We work with a select group of personal injury solicitors around the country. Therefore, we’ll match you with one with the right experience to ensure you obtain maximum compensation. They act on your behalf to build the case that proves your injury. In addition, they show it was avoidable if the owners or operators of the swimming pool had acted correctly.**
Your compensation payment will cover the physical damage you have sustained, but should also allow for any additional expenses you have had as the result of your injury. The Compensation Experts have helped clients who have lost income through being unable to work, or who have had private medical care, so they do not have to wait for medical attention or rehabilitative treatment on the NHS.
More about how we can help you
Claiming compensation is not about being greedy. Rather, it’s about receiving a fair and appropriate payment for your injury and inconvenience. Not to mention the personal satisfaction of having the responsible party acknowledge their role.
Other law firms and personal injury compensation lawyers try to lure customers with compensation calculators. So it is with swimming pool accident claims, as a result of a promise that might be hard to tailor to your case.
What makes us different is our approach. When you reach out to us, we treat each individual case as unique health and safety claim. One with its own individual quirks and requirements. In short, we’re working with you, not some digital calculator. In general, we can best calculate the suffering and loss of earnings you might be realising.
