Baby showers celebrate the pending or recent birth of a baby, and you could claim for an accident at a baby shower if you attended such a party in the last three years and sustained injuries after a trip or fall. The host has a duty of care to protect any guests and they could be liable if they failed to spot defective structures or dangerous flooring.
The ‘showering’ of gifts to an expectant mother is a common practice in the modern age. Baby shower parties, which are traditionally women-only events, are occasions when friends and family get together at a venue or at the mother’s house. Accidents are rare, but as with any party or gathering, there are risks and hazards involved.
Slips and falls are the most common complaints we deal with. You may have slipped down the stairs due to a broken step, or fallen over an obstacle that was clearly a safety hazard and sustained injuries such as a broken leg, concussion or punctured lungs. These injuries might have forced you to take a leave of absence from work. We can claim if your life has been affected by a serious accident at a baby shower.
Can I claim for an accident at a baby shower?
A third party must have been negligent for you to be able to claim. As mentioned previously, homeowners generally have a duty of care to protect guests. Surprisingly, 2.7 million people require treatment following injuries at home so it is important the baby shower host has checked the premises for dangers.
