    Accident in a museum?

    Visiting the local museum is often a fun, free way to spend a summer afternoon. As they change their exhibits frequently and often acquire new pieces to showcase to the public, no two visits are the same. Explore the changing history of your local area or take a look at some of the prestigious art work from British artists and artists further afield. Many museums hold daily shows and play host to a number of events throughout the year so there is something for everyone to enjoy. Many schools also pay a visit to the local museum to brush up on their history. As the summer months can bring in the crowds, it is best to stay aware of your environment to avoid accidents.

    Museums and their hazards

    Although museums are not generally thought of as hazardous places, staff have a duty to prevent even the most unlikely accident. Hazards to look out for include:

    • Loose carpeting, tiles or slippery rugs
    • Hanging displays or displays in inappropriate areas (e.g. aisles)
    • Loose banisters or railings
    • Faulty elevators or escalators
    • Falling objects

    All of these hazards are the result of poor maintenance on the part of museum staff and management. As they have a duty of care to all customers visiting the establishment, they are obliged to reduce the potential hazards or remove them completely. If they do not do so, they are at fault for any injuries or accidents that occur within the museum as a result. Should you find that you come out with a broken arm, a head injury or other injury then you may be able to make a claim for compensation. Accident Advice Helpline can help you through this process.

    What is Accident Advice Helpline?

    We are a law firm which helps victims of accidents that were the fault of someone other than themselves. This means that in cases where the museum did not take appropriate action to prevent your accident or injury, they may be held liable. As we have been in business since the year 2000, we have helped a large number of clients like yourself collect a cash sum for accidents that could have been prevented. Esther Rantzen recommends us for our integrity and dedication to customer service so you can be sure that you are in good hands. We also operate on a no win, no fee** basis therefore, you have no need to worry about paying us until we win your case.
