Swimming Pool Safety

Spain swimming pool accident statistics

As can be seen from the graph above, swimming pool accidents although not common, do happen to UK residents each year, some of which are fatal. If you are on holiday in Spain, there are a number of steps you can take to avoid accidents such as slips, trips, and falls. Some of the most common reasons for an accident at hotel swimming pool in Spain are:

  • Foreign pools often do not have qualified lifeguards.
  • Young children are unsupervised.
  • The deep and shallow end is not adequately marked.
  • Depth is improperly marked, making diving dangerous.
  • Jumping or diving from poolside furniture.
  • Swimming at night after the pool is closed.
  • Swimming when intoxicated.
  • Running around the edge of the pool.

These are just some of the things you should avoid when using a pool on holiday in Spain to minimise the risk of an accident. If you do have an accident, call Legal Expert on the number at the end of this guide to make a claim.

Can I Claim for A Swimming Pool Accident at My Hotel?

If you need to make a holiday accident claim for a swimming pool accident in Spain, it is important that you understand that your rights are almost the same as they would be if you were to be injured in the UK.

Furthermore, if you booked your holiday through a tour operator in the UK, you will be protected by UK legislation as well.

To claim personal injury compensation Spain holidaymakers need to report the accident to their tour company, and once you come home, call Legal Expert on the number at the end of this page to begin your claim today.

What Is Cryptosporidium, And How Do You Avoid?

Cryptosporidium is a swimming pool illness that takes the form of a parasite injection. Cryptosporidium is fairly common, especially in hot climates such as Spain. There are steps you can take to lower your chance of contracting Cryptosporidium, and these are:

  • Always shower before using a swimming pool.
  • Never swim if you are suffering from symptoms such as an upset stomach or nausea.
  • If you have had a stomach illness, you should wait two days before swimming.
  • Ensure that all young children had used a toilet before letting them swim.
  • Don’t change nappies poolside, and always wash your hands before swimming if you have changed a nappy.

If after taking these precautions, you still suffer from cryptosporidium while on holiday in Spain, call Legal Expert on the telephone number at the end of this guide to find out how we can help you make a compensation claim.

Claiming for Fatal Swimming Pool Accidents in Spain

Unfortunately, one of the reasons people need to make a personal injury claim in Spain is due to a swimming pool accident that has resulted in a fatality. There are so many ways that a person can be killed in a swimming pool accident, especially children who often do not have a real idea of how dangerous a swimming pool can be. Even a covered pool can be the cause of a lethal accident.

If you need to claim for holiday accident compensation and assistance, you can call Legal Expert on the phone number that you will find at the bottom of this page to proceed with a claim.

What Can Cause A Swimming Pool Accident in Spain?

There are many ways that a holiday accident in Spain involving a swimming pool could cause an injury to a holidaymaker, the most common causes of such accidents are:

  • The swimming pool owner failing to maintain the pool. For example, allowing broken tiles to cut swimmers.
  • The swimming pool owner failing to provide properly qualified lifeguards to monitor the pool.
  • The swimming pool owner failing to keep the pool clean, leading to illnesses and infection s for swimmers.
  • Children are swimming unsupervised in the pool.
  • People are swimming after drinking alcohol or taking drugs.
  • Slips, trips and falls on wet flooring or damaged floor coverings around the pool.

These are some of the most common ways a swimming pool accident in Spain might lead to a personal injury; there are more. No matter how your accident happened, call Legal Expert on the number at the end of this page to learn how we can help you claim compensation.

Calculating Compensation for Swimming Pool Accidents in Spain?

Unlike some legal services, we don’t use an online personal injury claims calculator as a method of capturing clients. These are generally loaded to give a claimant a far greater indication of how much they might claim and are not based on historical data in any way. Instead, we have provided this table that gives a general idea of the compensation you might claim for a range of injuries that could be the result of a swimming pool accident. These are real-world figures based on judicial guidelines for compensation payments in the UK.
