How much compensation could I be entitled to for a swimming pool accident on holiday?
Enjoying the pool is a favourite activity for families on holiday, but accidents can disrupt plans and cause injuries. Tour operators have a responsibility to provide a safe environment under the Package Holiday Regulations. If you’re injured due to an unsafe pool, Holiday Claims Bureau can help you make a claim. Provide us with the following:
- Clarifying the key aspects of the accident
- Explanation of the intense pain and emotional turmoil endured
- Assessment of the effects of the incident on your overall well-being, daily routine, work conditions, and any long-term symptoms it may have caused
- Description of the supporting documentation to demonstrate the accident's origin
Swimming pool accidents can typically arise from:
- Slippery or slimy surfaces around the pool
- Accidents on waterslides
- Defective drains or filters
- Jagged or broken tiles
- Wrong concentrations of chemicals administered, causing burns or poisoning
- Pools that are too shallow beneath a diving board or slide
- Design faults such as unseen edges in the pool

Can I claim for a swimming pool accident on holiday?
If you have been involved in a swimming pool accident while on holiday, you may be able to make a claim for compensation with the support of Holiday Claims Bureau. Our experienced solicitors provide a professional legal service to handle the claim process, from submitting the claim to negotiating settlement and recovering other losses that arise from the accident.
Regardless of the severity of the accident, it is crucial to take certain steps if you or a loved one is involved. Seek medical attention as soon as possible, even if you do not think the accident is serious. Make sure to report the accident formally to your Tour Operator and Tour Rep, explain what happened and inform the attendant immediately so that the pool can be closed to prevent further accidents.
Collect the contact information of anyone involved or witnessing the accident, take photos of any visible defects or issues with the pool and keep a record of any medical expenses, including receipts. Finally, seek independent legal advice from Holiday Claims Bureau and be cautious of accepting any offers from the hotel or Tour Operator, such as vouchers or upgrades.
By following the steps outlined above and enlisting our legal support, you can increase your chances of receiving the compensation you are entitled to for your injuries and other losses.
