After suffering an accident performing in the street or in a dance competition, you may be thinking, ‘Can I claim for an accident when breakdancing?’ You can find expert advice by contacting Accident Advice Helpline. We employ highly experienced and skilled solicitors who work on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis. We have had experience of making successful claims since our establishment in 2000. If your breakdancing accident happened in the last three years and was caused by someone else, you may be able to pursue a claim for financial compensation.
You can suffer breakdancing accidents quite frequently when you take up this form of dance. Fortunately, most accidents consist of no more than minor bruises or slip-ups. As breakdancing involves moving around at great speed to hip-hop or funk music, often the only way to learn your skills is by trial and error. That said, some falls are more serious. You may even break an arm or leg if you make a bad movement or slip when you are doing a headstand or handstand. As breakdancing is often competitive, you may push yourself to your limits to try and better another dancer.
If you had a breakdancing accident that was caused by someone else, you could claim compensation for your injuries. Perhaps you were very careful even as you danced at great speed, but were knocked over by someone else. Dancing outside, you may have been struck by traffic if someone pushed you into the road or because a sudden loud noise startled you.
Your ability to claim compensation is improved if you have a clear view about who was responsible for your breakdancing accident. For more advice about this, you can speak with one of our dedicated call advisors on our free helpline.
Our advice can take different forms. To begin with, we can tell you if you are eligible to claim and what your compensation could be worth. To find out about compensation, try our free online claim calculator, which takes less than a minute to use, or call us to speak with one of our friendly advisers.
If you have a strong claim, we will match you with a personal injury solicitor. All of our solicitors work on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis. Reviewing the documentation about your accident, your solicitor can advise you what else is needed to make your claim successful. This might involve asking those who were with you at the time for a witness statement or checking whether there is video or photographic evidence of your accident.
