Whether you head for Christmas markets to shop for gifts or you’re simply there to socialise over a mug of mulled wine and some ginger biscuits, there’s no denying that Christmas markets help to get everyone in the festive spirit! When you’re wrapped up warm and enjoying the sights and smells of the festivities, the last thing you expect is to be injured, but Christmas market accidents can and do happen. At least Accident Advice Helpline is here to make sure you get the Christmas market injury compensation you deserve. Because our lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis, you don’t even need to worry about how you’ll afford the legal fees.
Christmas market accidents and injuries
Slips, trips and falls are amongst the most common types of accidents to occur at Christmas markets. You could slip on an icy path that hasn’t been cleared or trip over boxes of stock that a trader has left lying around, suffering cuts and bruises, broken bones or even a head injury, if you hit your head as you fall. You could even be scalded by somebody spilling their mulled wine on you, or hit on the head by objects falling from height, such as signs, banners or items displayed on a market stall. You could be injured by faulty goods or toys bought at the market, or suffer lacerations from a broken stall or sign that you bump into. You could even suffer food poisoning after eating food prepared and eaten at the market.
Should you make a claim?
Claiming Christmas market injury compensation is definitely something you should consider whether you have suffered minor or serious injuries. You could even make a claim on behalf of your child if they have been injured at a Christmas market. Serious injuries could ruin your Christmas and you may need time off work to recover from your injuries, affecting your whole family financially. Accident Advice Helpline can help you get personal injury compensation that could make it easier to pay your household bills until you are ready to return to work.
You can call our freephone helpline on 0800 689 0500 to find out if you’re eligible to claim personal injury compensation and get confidential advice from our expert advisors. Nobody who has been injured should have to suffer in silence, so get in touch with us as soon as possible after your accident as there is a three-year time limit in place to make a claim.
