    Can I claim for an accident at a pride march?


    The possibility of having an accident at a pride march is a real one, which can arise due to the number of people in attendance, the strength of feeling of those attending, the location and the length of time it continues.

    However, knowing that an accident at a pride march could occur does not mean that it is an inevitability, or that you would not be due compensation in the event that you do suffer an injury.

    Accordingly, it is essential that you know what your position you will be in the event that you are injured in an accident at a pride march.

    There are several aspects that you need to be aware of before you take part in a pride march so that you will know what action to take in the event that you suffer an accident that leads to personal injury.

    What injury have you suffered?

    No matter what type of injury you have suffered, your first thoughts will always be the severity of it and how long it may take to recover. For that reason, it is important to properly understand the type of injury you have suffered, rather than guessing. For example, if you trip on a cracked paving slab and suffer pain to your ankle, you may immediately assume that you have twisted it, however, more severe injuries are also possible, such as a torn ligament or hairline fracture.

    As soon as practicably possible, get the advice of a medical professional to get a correct diagnosis and retain any notes/recommendations that you are given.

    Do you require immediate medical attention?

    Should you have an accident at a pride march, you may be inclined to carry on and demonstrate how you feel about the situation. However, there will be other occasions where you are not in a position to carry on, as you require immediate medical attention. Where this is the case, you must retain the information related to the medical appointment, including the date and the name of the person seen, and retain receipts for any payments made.

    Remember to keep the key details

    Be aware of who has organised the march and who is responsible for the area where the march is taking place. If the march is taking place in a public area, you have to be aware of whether the march is an authorised one as whether you have permission to be there will be an important factor as to whether compensation will be payable. Take into account whether you were you given any warnings or instructions before the march. Were you advised that you were attending the pride march at your own risk?
