    Can I claim for a pole dancing accident?


    If you have suffered an injury in a pole dancing accident you probably have lots of questions. How did it happen? How long will it take for me to recover? If you have suffered financially then another question you may be asking is “Can I claim for a pole dancing accident?”

    Every accident is different so it would be impossible to answer that question without knowing the details. If the accident was caused by the negligence of others then you may be entitled to compensation. Call Accident Advice Helpline to find out if you can claim.

    How can someone else be negligent?

    Pole dancing used to be found only in sleazy bars and clubs. However in recent years it has become an increasingly popular form of keep fit. People of all ages and abilities attend pole dancing classes hoping to lose weight and tone up muscles.

    Anyone running those classes has a responsibility to ensure that they are as safe as possible for all participants. This means checking the equipment to make sure it is safe and providing safety equipment such as crash mats when necessary so that any falls do not result in a serious injury.

    The exercises in pole dancing do get harder as the participants become more experienced and can involve hanging from the pole by your legs. It is essential that the instructor monitors the ability of the participants and only increases the difficulty of the classes when they are ready.
