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.
