Fall Injuries And Pool Decks
Anytime a person slips, trips, or falls, injuries are possible. Hopefully, the person is able to get up on their own and walk away from the incident, possibly with bruises but with no lasting harm. But there are, unfortunately, situations in which an injured individual is severely hurt. For instance, when a slippery, poorly maintained pool deck leads to head trauma, fractures, or internal injuries being sustained.
If a pool injury in Clearwater, Hudson, or Tampa has led to large financial expenses, connect with a skilled personal injury attorney to learn about different avenues to damage recovery. Where the accident happened will impact how a settlement could be accessed. The claims process will be different if the accident happened at an individual residence or a hotel complex, for example.
Harm Sustained Because of Pool Deck Dangers
There are many pool deck dangers that can lead to a slip and fall injury.
- Deck spills are not cleaned up properly and efficiently
- The concrete or tile is poorly maintained
- Cracks and chips result in trip risks
- Construction work areas not partitioned off appropriately
- Algae growth is not dealt with, creating a slippery surface
Hotels, fitness centers, and other businesses where pools are one of the amenities offered have a responsibility to maintain a reasonably safe space. If there is evidence they did not, and a guest is injured, filing a claim with their insurance company is likely possible.
Urgent Care Centers, Medical Testing, and Other Fees
There are many medical expenses that can follow a slip and fall pool deck injury. When harm is severe, there could be hospital stay expenses and ongoing therapy fees. And even injuries that are not as severe can result in high expenses, such as when an urgent care center visit leads to a recommendation to see a specialist and participation in a range of medical tests to pinpoint the health issue and needed treatment course of action.
Thankfully, you do not have to navigate all of your financial recovery options on your own. Lean on the expertise of a Florida personal injury lawyer to fully explore your choices and be sure you are pursuing an avenue that will lead to a financial settlement that will fully cover your expenses. You may have past bills, current fees, and future expenses to consider. If you were to accept a settlement that solely settles your past bills, you could still have a lot of other fees to manage. An injury lawyer will review your case and inform you of the total value of your claim.
