Tips to avoid Swimming Pool Injuries
To reduce the chances of having a swimming pool accident, you should use common sense but also bear these things in mind:
- Always check that the Swimming Pool has Public Liability Insurance so if you do have a swimming pool injury you are protected
- Check that there is a life guard on duty in case you have a swimming pool accident
- Never swim if you are completely alone just in case you suffer swimming pool injuries
- Never swim alone if you are outdoors
- Pay for swimming lessons with a fully qualified instructor to reduce the chances of a swimming pool accident
- Pay for good quality, correctly fitting goggles so you can see what is under the water
- Watch your children at all times to avoid a swimming pool injury
- Check the water depth before jumping or diving in. If it is shallow you could easily suffer very serious swimming pool injuries
- Don’t run as the tiles can be slippery which can cause a swimming pool accident
100% of our Swimming Pool Injuries Claims are made on a No Win No Fee basis.
