If you would like to ask a law firm if you could claim for an injury at a trade fair, then you should contact Accident Advice Helpline. As personal injury experts, there is no better place to learn about your legal rights when making a claim for compensation.
Trade fairs can be quite hectic – especially during set-up and breakdown. Perhaps you are an employee and injured your back while lifting something exceedingly heavy during an exhibit set-up. Alternatively, maybe a heavy box that your co-worker was carrying dropped on your toe and caused it to fracture.
Perhaps you were a convention attendee who was strolling along looking at the different exhibits and was hit by a falling display. Or maybe you slipped on wet flooring in the absence of a sign warning you that the flooring was wet.
Whether you’ve sustained a back injury, broken toe, or a head injury, Accident Advice Helpline can help you. We can assist you with recovering the money that you lost from time off of work, along with reimbursing you for expenses that you may have incurred as a result of the accident – including medical bills and counselling.
If I had an injury at a trade fair, but it was my fault, can I make a claim?
No, you cannot make a claim if the injury was due to your own personal negligence. However, if it can be proven that your injury at a trade fair occurred due to negligence of the trade fair, then you may be able to file a claim.
We understand that it is your responsibility to be safe no matter where you go, but sometimes things happen that are out of your control. If you suffered at an injury at a trade fair that was clearly not your fault and there’s evidence to support this, then you are not responsible. The trade fair is responsible. The trade fair has a duty to ensure a safe environment for its employees and trade fair attendees. If they neglect to do so, then you can pursue a claim for personal injury compensation.
How will I know if I’m eligible to make a claim?
There are a few ways to know if you are eligible to make a claim for your injury at a trade fair. You can either use our free, 30-second online compensation calculator or give us a call. The compensation calculator is a simple 30-second evaluation that looks at the fundamentals of your case and enables us to determine if your case qualifies or not. If it is determined that you are eligible to make a claim, Accident Advice Helpline will then work on a no win no fee* basis to ensure that you get the compensation that you are entitled to. This means that if you don’t win your case, you don’t owe us a penny.
