Theatres are a fantastic alternative to the modern cinema and are great entertainment venues for people of all ages. The theatre is the place to visit if you and your family enjoy watching musicals, ballet performances or plays and it is often an inexpensive way to spend an evening. Take the kids to see some panto around Christmas time or couples and friends can enjoy the latest stand-up comedy. There really is something to suit everyone’s taste at the theatre which means that it can often become extremely busy during opening night. There is the potential for accidents, whether it is due to customers’ distraction or whether it is due to negligence on the part of the theatre staff.
How can I have an accident in a theatre?
When visiting your local theatre, it pays to keep safe and be aware of any potential accidents. Some of the things which may cause an accident or injury include:
- Falling lights or fittings
- Falling over or tripping in the dark
- Tripping over obstructions in aisles or walkways
- Slipping on spilled drinks or food
- Seizures from flashing lights
Theatres have strict health and safety policies to adhere to in order to protect customers from potential accidents. If you feel that they have failed in their duty to prevent such an accident then you can make a claim for compensation. If you have any of the above accidents or are injured in another way, then you can give Accident Advice Helpline a call.
