- Should I ask for compensation?
Nearly two weeks ago I cut my elbow on the tiles in the showers at my local swimming pool. I noticed whilst entering the showers that a round hole about 4 inches across was in the tiled wall where someone had removed the shower control button, leaving a sharp edge. I thought at the time "that's a bit dodgy, someone could cut them selves on that".
Two minutes later my six-year-old daughter who I had taken swimming decided that my shower was hotter than hers and playfully pushed me backwards to take my place; as I was unbalanced I put out my arms and caught mt left elbow on the edge of the tiled hole, ending up with a 2 inch cut which has almost healed now but is still sore.
Not going to be stupid and ring Accident Helpline, but would suggesting a year's free membership as a goodwill gesture be unethical? Discuss. (If you have nothing else to do!)Posted 8 years agomk1fanMember
Agree with TJ. Ethically and morally, you should sue the person resonsible for causing the accident. Your daughter's actions led to the injury. As she is too young to be responsible for her actions then her parents are responsible. As it would be ridiculous to sue yourself, then sue the mother of your daughter.Posted 8 years agoJacksonPollockMember
Yep sue their @rses of. It could have easily been your daughter or any other poor innocent child that received severe lacerations. It has obviously effected you deeply and you are almost definitely suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (make sure you perfect your middle distance stare for the visit to the quacks).Posted 8 years ago
