    Five far-fetched but possible nightclub accidents


    At Accident Advice Helpline, we’ve helped many people who’ve suffered an injury in circumstances that are perhaps best described as slightly unusual. We are, however, a leading UK law firm and, when to comes to all areas of personal injury compensation, and we understand that sometimes accidents can bizarre accidents do happen that might seem completely against the odds.

    Rest assured, if you have been injured as a result of an accident, through no fault of your own, one of our highly-trained advisers will be able to help. Some people may feel embarrassed about coming forward with what is a genuine claim for compensation but we at Accident Advice Helpline pride ourselves on our professionalism, reliability and dependability.

    To demonstrate some of the types of claims we deal with, here are five far-fetched yet definitely possible potential nightclub accidents.

    1. Epilepsy: Although instances of epilepsy in this form are rarer than some might believe, strobe lights may induce a form of epileptic seizure.
    2. Dehydration: Due to heat caused by the sheer volume of people in crowded nightclubs, and alcohol intake, it is not uncommon to suffer dehydration, which can have extremely serious side effects. Drink plenty of water to prevent nightclub accidents.
    3. Slip, trip or fallA slip, trip or fall can occur in a nightclub and frankly the causes of slips and falls in nightclubs are endless. The main causes, however, are spilt beverages and defective footwear, such as when the heel detaches from a stiletto.
    4. WhiplashWhiplash is a term most often used in association with road traffic accidents and refers to a sudden and violent movement of the head which strains the tendons in the neck. It is not unheard of to develop whiplash from dancing too vigorously in a nightclub.
    5. Repetitive strain injury: In the same way that is possible to suffer whiplash in a nightclub it is also possible to develop a repetitive strain injury from performing the same motions for a period of time, or putting your spine under pressure when wearing high-heeled shoes.
