A circus injury claim is a personal injury claim that is made by a circus spectator or worker who has suffered an injury because of negligence on the part of the circus or people who work within or around the circus. The accident that causes the injury can be one of a variety of things and knowing the best steps to take after the accident will help ensure you get the maximum possible compensation for your injuries.
What might give rise to a circus injury claim?
When you visit the circus, you expect to have fun, not be involved in an accident. Being injured in an accident at a circus is unexpected and can turn what was supposed to be a good day into a stressful ordeal. It is the responsibility of the circus to ensure that all health and safety guidelines are met so that anyone who visits the circus will have a safe and pleasant experience. Any equipment that is being used or stored should be properly maintained and kept away from public areas. If you trip over equipment or are injured in an accident because of poorly maintained or faulty equipment, the circus should be held accountable for its negligence.

It’s a more common occurrence for circus performers to receive injuries at work. The unpredictable nature of animals and the use by many performers of specialist equipment means that every angle must be covered from a safety aspect. All performers must have sufficient training and have access to properly maintained safety equipment, and it is the responsibility of the circus to ensure that this is so. If you are a performer or worker at a circus and have received an injury as a result of an accident that should not have happened, call our 24/7 helpline for more information. Accident Advice Helpline’s specialist solicitors can help with your personal injury claim and make sure that you get the compensation you are entitled to for your injuries.
Whether you were injured at a circus as a spectator or a worker, there is no reason to quietly let the injuries heal without pursuing a compensation claim. As the victim of an accident caused by negligence, it is your right to receive compensation for your injuries. More serious injuries can leave you with on-going problems such as the need to take time off work in order to recover and receive further treatment. This can lead to a loss of earnings, which can prolong and worsen your ordeal. It may be that you are a parent who needs help with childcare while you recuperate from your injuries. These and other factors must be taken into consideration when making a claim for compensation. Accident Advice Helpline will help you to cover all the bases to ensure that justice is served.
