    Can I claim for an aerial silks accident?


    The question “can I claim for an aerial silks accident?” will depend on the circumstances surrounding your mishap. To make a claim you should not have been the cause of the accident.

    As an aerial silks performer you will be well aware of the risks. Aerial silks involve acrobatic movements while suspended on fabrics. It is a very beautiful sight; however, there is always the risk of falling from a height and sustaining an injury.

    To discover whether or not you can make a claim following an aerial silks accident you need expert legal advice from Accident Advice Helpline.

    What we will need to know

    Obviously, we will need to know the circumstances surrounding your accident. This means we need your own account and those of any others who witnessed the accident. From these accounts we will determine whether in fact you can make an aerial silks accident claim.

    For you to be able to make that claim someone else must have been responsible for your mishap through negligence or a deliberate act. For instance, rigging that has not been installed properly could have caused the accident. As the innocent victim you may be able to make a claim against those who installed the rigging or the owners of the venue where the accident occurred.

    Through the information given to us by yourself and any witnesses, our experienced solicitors will be able to build a case for your claim. The information provided should also be enough to counter any defence by the party liable for the accident.

    The importance of seeing your doctor

    Following any accident it is always important you visit your doctor, even if the injury appears to be only mild. Apart from the importance of you receiving treatment your doctor’s report could form a key part in your claim and influence the amount awarded should your bid for compensation be successful.

    Keep a note of financial losses

    Your injury could well have cost you financially and these can be recouped through a successful claim. You should record any losses suffered through not being able to work while recovering. Additional costs, such as for prescriptions, travel to treatment sessions and non-NHS therapies should also be recorded and receipts kept.

    In order to answer the question, “can I claim for an aerial silks accident”, contact Accident Advice Helpline without delay and start on the road to receiving compensation for your personal pain and suffering and financial losses.
