    Can a circus performer claim if they are injured during a performance?

    Whether you’re a hairdresser, an accountant, a nurse, a teacher or an acrobat, you deserve to work in a safe environment. If you’ve been injured at work as a result of your employer’s negligence, you have a right to claim compensation. If you had a slip, trip or fall or you were injured during a performance, call Accident Advice Helpline to find out if you could be eligible for work accident compensation.

    Can a circus performer claim if they are injured during a performance?

    When it comes to dangerous jobs, working at a circus is up there with working in construction and agriculture. Circus performers participate in dangerous activities and part of the appeal of going to the circus is watching people do extraordinary things. The nature of the job may mean that hazards are commonplace, but that shouldn’t give employers an excuse to flout the rules. If a circus performer is injured during a performance and the accident could have been prevented by due care and attention to health and safety regulations, the individual should have a valid claim for circus injuries.

    I’ve been injured at work: what can I do?

    It’s very common for accidents to happen at work. Sometimes, there’s very little you can do to prevent work injuries, but in other cases, accidents arise as a result of negligence on the part of the employer. If you’ve been injured at work as a result of being provided with ineffective safety equipment, you’ve sustained injuries after using faulty electrical appliances or you’ve had a slip or trip, which was caused by damaged flooring, you should not assume that you are liable for the accident. If you’re a circus performer, and you fell because a tightrope was damaged, for example, your employer would be liable for the circus accident.
