Working as a professional acrobat can be rewarding, challenging and exciting. You have probably invested a huge amount of time into improving your skill and dexterity, focusing on a number of different routines to improve your working range. As with most physically demanding jobs, you are also exposed to a high level of risk – acrobats can suffer injuries to their hands, arms and legs as they practice and perform their routines. If you suffered a serious accident that was caused by someone else, you could be able to make an acrobatics accident claim with Accident Advice Helpline.

Contacting us in person
You can choose to contact us directly by calling our free, 24-hour helpline. Using a landline, you can call 0800 180 4123, or from a mobile the number to dial is 0333 500 0992. When you call, one of our friendly advisors will go through the details of your acrobatics accident with you. The main thing we need to determine is who is to blame for your accident and what evidence there is to support your claim. You can call 24-hours a day.
To make a successful claim for compensation, another person needs to be held accountable for your accident. You may have performed acrobatics in an arena that was poorly maintained. As an acrobat, much of the equipment and many of the venues you perform in are likely to be owned by someone else. Negligent maintenance or a dangerous working environment will give you a strong basis for an accident claim.
One of your colleagues or a member of the public may instead have caused your acrobatics injury. If your colleague put you at risk by performing when he or she was sick, stressed or otherwise incapacitated, you could be within your rights to start a claim for compensation. Although many acrobatics arenas are closed to the public during a performance, one of the spectators could have caused you to fall or trip by surprising you or coming too close to you during the performance. This could also be a valid basis for an acrobatics accident claim.
