    Can I claim for an accident at a poetry reading?


    You should be able to claim for an accident at a poetry reading if it was caused by the negligence of another person or third party. These public performances often take place in small venues, such as book stores or cafés.

    You could claim if you were attending a reading and sustained injuries due to a serious fall on a faulty structure or wet floor. There are many possibilities for the cause of public place accidents and it would be impossible to define the legal implications without knowing further details.

    Accident Advice Helpline is available for victims who want to make a claim against a liable third party. Accidents in public places are often down to a lack of foresight from building or shop owners. They fail to follow health and safety laws and their negligence can make it dangerous for visitors.

    You do not expect to be exposed to dangers when attending a poetry reading but a third party’s negligence could result in your sustaining life-changing injuries. You are owed compensation if this has happened to you.

    Can I claim for an accident at a poetry reading?

    Our advisors will tell you whether your case has encouraging prospects. If we think that a third party could be to blame, there is a great chance that we will accept your case. You need to have been treated for injuries sustained in a serious accident at a poetry reading during the last three years.

    You may have trapped your hand in a metal structure at the poetry reading venue and suffered crushing injuries or broken bones. The venue owner will be liable if they could have prevented the injury.

    What costs are covered?

    A claim is a lot more detailed than many people think. Any costs you have incurred can be claimed for and you will also receive a sum depending on the severity of your injuries and the suffering and pain it has caused.

    You may be owed more if your personal circumstances have changed due to the accident and you now require a wheelchair or you are unable to take part in one of your favourite hobbies. To find out how much you could claim for your accident at a poetry reading, use our online compensation calculator. It will take only 30 seconds to complete and it will also confirm your eligibility.

    We recommend that you notify the venue owner immediately having been injured. You should also write down any details you can remember, or ask a close relative to do this for you if you are still recovering. These details could help our solicitors to back up your accident at a poetry reading claim.

    Photographs are also incredibly useful as they are a great way of highlighting what caused the accident. To work with one of the experienced solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline, just ring our helpline.
