Themed events can be fun, but sometimes the addition of props and unfamiliar settings can lead to an increased risk of injury or accidents. If you want to know the answer to the question, ‘Can I claim for an injury at a medieval banquet?’ then the answer is probably yes – if you can prove someone was at fault for your injury.
Is there more than one sort of injury at a medieval banquet I could claim for?
Yes, events like these usually include many potential areas for accidents or injuries. Many compensation claims for personal injuries come in the slips, trips and falls category and this is certainly something that could happen at an event like a medieval banquet.
The props at a medieval banquet can add to the atmosphere but they can also be a source of potential injury, such as burns from candles lighting the table or the risk of being hit by a poorly secured piece of artwork or decoration on the wall.
The food at the banquet could also be a source of problems if it is not properly prepared, leading to severe cases of food poisoning or, in the cases of people with allergies, a health threatening reaction.
In reality, you can claim for most kinds of injury as long as you can prove that your accident was someone else’s fault. In the case of an injury at a medieval banquet, this may be the owners of the venue where it is held or the organisers of the event.
Even if the banquet is being held at a private house, you may still be able to claim if an organising company has been hired or even claim against the owner of the home.
How can I claim for an injury at a medieval banquet?
The first step in making a claim is simple. Contact Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 and speak to one of our trained advisors. They will listen to the details of your injury and give you advice as to whether it is worth proceeding with a claim.
Once you have decided to go ahead, we will allocate your case to a solicitor who will need to build a case to support your claim. You may need to go for a medical assessment or provide notes from your doctor or any other medical appointments you have attended.
It can also help if you have photographs of the event venue and of your injury as well as information about how the incident happened including possible witness statements, and provide information about how the injury has affected you financially.
Remember that if you have been drinking alcohol, as is likely at an event like a banquet, that it could have some influence on your claim if it can be proved that your intoxication in any way contributed to your injury at a medieval banquet.
