    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Can I claim for an injury at a christening?


    When you need in-depth advice on receiving compensation for an accident at a special event, give us a ring and ask, ‘Can I claim for an injury at a christening?’ At Accident Advice Helpline, we understand that it may be an awkward situation, especially if this was a family occasion.

    But it makes sense to claim what is rightfully yours and be reimbursed for any costs you’ve incurred. Whoever owns the building will have public liability insurance, which covers them for any claims made, so please don’t think you are taking funds which would otherwise be spent elsewhere.

    How do people get injured at a christening?

    Christenings are usually held in a church and the building should be well maintained, ensuring guests are not at risk from any trips or falls. Unfortunately, in some cases, the floor is uneven or slippery, which can result in people falling over. Similarly, there may be pews that are not sturdy enough or loose items that fall and cause a head injury.

    Every area of a public building should be subject to a risk assessment, and the owners are obliged by law to take care of anything that could cause a problem. Whatever has happened to you, Accident Advice Helpline has a team of professional advisors who can explain how injury claims work.

    What should I do if I sustain an injury at a christening?

    If you have suffered an injury at a christening, the first and most important thing to do is seek medical attention, if you don’t consider your injury to be an emergency, make an appointment to see your GP.
