I would just like to say thank you to Mr Chilcott for everything he did to help and support me throughout my claim.
Be Careful Jumping Into Swimming Pools
Wed 31st Aug 2011 Claims abroad
The High Court recently denied a claimant damages where he had dived into a private swimming pool.
The claim was brought in accordance with English law, as the accident
happened over here. The decision in Grimes v Hawkins follows the decision in Evans v Kosmar.
To dive into a shallow swimming pool carries an "obvious risk". The pool was properly designed, competently built and well maintained. There was nothing unusual about it and there were no hidden hazards. The risk that arose was not from the state of the premises; rather it was caused by the risk inherent in diving.
