At Accident Advice Helpline we receive enquiries about claims from people who have been the victims of many different types of accidents. Our legal team is in the unique position of being able to answer the question: “Can I claim for a juggling accident?”
Whether you have suffered the accident as a performer or as a member of the audience called on stage to assist with the act, you may have grounds for a claim for injuries suffered. The claim would be to secure financial compensation for pain and suffering as well as any financial losses sustained. These financial losses could include income lost because of time off work recovering, prescription charges, the cost of travelling to and from medical appointments, and for any therapies. If your injuries were severe you may require personal care, and any claim would seek to recover those costs as well.
What factors will decide if I can make a claim?
In order to make a successful claim, it must be shown that you were not responsible for the accident in any way. Our Accident Advice Helpline solicitors will decide if there are grounds for such a claim through your own recollection of the accident and witness accounts.
If the accident occurred during a performance, the law demands an accident book be kept at the venue. This could also provide additional evidence for your claim.
Based on the information collected, our expert lawyers should also be able to decide who the claim should be made against.
How do I contact you?
Making a claim is a legal process, which means that it is in your best interests to contact a legal firm that specialises in personal claims, such as Accident Advice Helpline. It is also ideal if you contact us as soon as possible as there are typically time limits for making a claim, generally three years following the date of the accident.
You can contact us by ringing our dedicated 24-hour free helpline to speak to one of our trained advisors at 0800 689 0500. This will be your first step in learning whether or not you are eligible to make a juggling accident claim.
What will your services cost me?
Should it be decided you have grounds for a claim, our experienced lawyers will be able to represent you. They work on a no win no fee basis which means there are no upfront fees in order to file your claim.
What other information should I provide you with?
If a claim is to be made and it is successful, the extent of your injuries could well determine the amount of compensation awarded. Your doctor’s report will describe your injuries, so it is important you see you doctor as soon after the accident as possible.
In order to claim back any financial losses, you should keep a record of all earnings lost and receipts for additional costs.
By contacting us at Accident Advice Helpline, you will receive the answer to your question: “Can I claim for a juggling accident?”, and hopefully be on the road to securing the compensation you deserve.
