It could be that one day you will have to ask us, ‘Can I claim for an accident at an art festival?’ And generally speaking we would be able to tell you that the answer is yes. If the accident was caused by the negligence of another person then you might be able to make a claim for compensation.
How can I have an accident at an art festival?
Easily! You could bump into something that should not be there, fall over something that should not be there, something could fall on you… the possibilities are endless. If the incident is a genuine accident then you might not be able to put in a claim for compensation, but if it has happened as a direct result of a breach in health and safety regulations, then you may be eligible for compensation. It could be that you were too close to a table that collapsed because it had not been put together properly. It could be that you were caught in a crush because too many people had been allowed in. These are things that could have been avoided with proper precautions.
