Are you wondering how people get compensation for accidents at a museum? If so, read on. There are many ways you can become injured whilst at a museum, but three of the main accidents that might occur in one include slipping, tripping or falling because of loose objects, being hurt because of badly-maintained steps or surfaces and being hit by vehicles moving around the premises. At Accident Advice Helpline, we can assist you if you have come to harm at a museum and it wasn’t your fault.
More about accidents at a museum
The people who run the museum have a duty of care to you, which means you may be able to take action against them if you are in an accident that they could have prevented. Whether the museum is publicly or private-owned, you may still be able to claim if you were hurt because of negligence. Other accidents that might occur include skidding on wet floors that haven’t been acknowledged by signs or sustaining food poisoning when eating at the canteen.
You normally have three years to claim from the date of the accident, though you will have until you’re 21 years of age if the accident happened when you were a child. You will need to have seen a doctor or similar medical professional about your injuries after the accident and it needs to have been someone else’s fault. No money is needed to start a claim and we work on a no-win, no-fee* basis.
Even if you’re not in pain now, you may start to experience problems related to your accident later, so you shouldn’t rule out claiming if you do think you are eligible. We will work with you to collect together as much evidence as we need, which can include CCTV footage, witness contact details, medical reports and more. Please don’t throw anything away that could help us get compensation for you. Any solicitor you work with will have vast experience in dealing with claims like yours. If you have had an accident in a museum, your lawyer will have worked on similar claims before, so don’t worry about them having no experience in the relevant area.
