    Circus injury advice


    If you have been injured in an accident at a circus which was not your fault, seek circus injury advice from Accident Advice Helpline. If you are at a circus as a spectator, the risk of accidental injury should be quite low. Accidents do happen, however, so if you are injured at a circus, there are some steps that you can take to ensure that you have a thorough case for a circus injury claim.

    Many people would expect that injuries at a circus would mainly be experienced by the performers, but there are various ways that you can receive accidental injuries as a spectator. The seating around any stage area or at a big top must adhere to strict health and safety guidelines and any cracks or damage to the seats must be addressed by the circus, otherwise, the damage may create a safety hazard for spectators and cause an accident. There have also been isolated cases where things have flown into the crowd from the stage area, hitting spectators. A person may even trip or fall on an unsafe or poorly sign-posted wet area.

    In any case, if you are unsure whether you have a case for a compensation claim, contact Accident Advice Helpline for further information regarding your claim. Our specialist in-house lawyers and expert staff will help you pursue your claim with the best possible representation for your case.

    Professional advice

    Following any accident, you should immediately seek professional medical assistance in order to treat your injuries. This will create a medical record of the injury sustained in the accident, which will reinforce the validity of the claim and help Accident Advice Helpline law team produce the necessary documents and evidence when the claim process is in motion. If it is possible, it is also helpful if you can get photographs of your injuries before and after medical receiving treatment.

    The area where the accident happened should also be photographed if possible. This kind of photographic evidence may help your case. For example, if you trip on some type of circus equipment that was somewhere it should not have been, photographing the offending area will give our solicitors a very clear idea of the circumstances surrounding the accident. It can also be useful to make notes about the nature and location of the accident including the address and postcode, the area of the circus (big top, stalls, etc.) where the accident happened and a brief description of the circumstances surrounding the accident that are the basis for your personal injury claim.

    Open Claim Calculator

    Any witnesses to the accident should be asked if they are willing to state what they saw of the incident. Names and phone numbers should be taken for any witness to do this. For further circus injury advice and to get help with understanding your rights during the claim process, contact Accident Advice Helpline. All claims taken on by our specialist solicitors are done so on a no-win no-fee** basis.
