The risks of breakdancing
Dancers usually perform in the street or other public area and try to outperform others with their skill and speed. The obvious risk when breakdancing is that you could slip and sprain your ankle or wrist. In more severe accidents, you could fall and fracture your arm or leg, or even sustain a concussion or break your neck.

Your breakdancing accident
You may have been knocked over by someone while you were breakdancing, or surprised by another person’s sudden actions. Your physical injury could have been significant, perhaps leaving you with a permanent disability. As breakdancing is often performed in the street, you may have been injured by a vehicle mounting the pavement or by being accidentally pushed into the traffic by a pedestrian.
One of the basic requirements when you make an accident claim is proof of another person’s culpability. This can mean gathering witness statements or showing video or photographic evidence of the accident. Since bystanders film many performances, such evidence may be easy to obtain. Start by asking those who were with you at the time whether they filmed your performance.
When we match you with one of our personal injury lawyers, you will be asked for details of your accident. Your solicitor will be able to tell you what else may be needed to support your claim.
