    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Actor accident claim

    Making an actor accident claim is not easy if you do not know how the process works. The good news is that all you have to do is make a call to Accident Advice Helpline, so they can guide you through the process and ensure that you have all the support that you need at a very difficult time.

    Accident Advice Helpline was established nearly 15 years ago and has worked tirelessly since then to ensure that people are able to get the compensation that they deserve after an accident. In the late 1990’s, the government made the decision to stop legal aid for those making personal injury claims. As a result, many people who had been injured due to the actions of others were unable to make a claim simply because they did not have the funds available to get a claim started. Accident Advice Helpline bridged this gap by offering a service on a no win, no fee’ basis.

    Am I at risk of an accident while working as an actor?

    The simple answer to this question is yes. The risk of an accident is there for the vast majority of people no matter what type of work they do, so an accident claim is not unheard of. Health and safety is a priority, but there are always cases where something has been forgotten and this can have serious consequences. If you have been a victim of similar neglect then you need to be sure that you contact Accident Advice Helpline, as we can help you get the justice that you deserve.

    It may be that you have been injured while performing or rehearsing. Theatres and film or TV sets all have a variety of risks in the workplace. It could be something as simple as tripping over an unsecured wire. The injury sustained could mean that you cannot complete the job and you need to take time off work. Even a small injury can take a while to heal and this can put you out of the loop for other work too. A jobbing actor relies on work to come along regularly, but even a sprained ankle could mean that you lose out on work for a while.

    So what do I do now?

    Make a call – it really is as simple as that! We operate a 24-hour helpline that is free so there is no reason not to speak to us. Even if you only need to ask a few questions about the process, why not pick up the phone? Our team is experienced in dealing with personal injury claims and will be happy to answer your questions. In just a few minutes you could find out if you have the grounds to make a claim and we will explain exactly what that entails. Once you have put your claim in our hands you do not need to worry – we will keep you informed of the progress of your claim every step of the way.
