Every week plenty of people head off to dance lessons. They may have a desire to enjoy learning about a new dance craze or perhaps learning to a good-enough extent to be able to dance competitively. Still more people learn to dance simply because they want to get fitter and healthier and have a chance to meet new friends.
The last thing anyone would expect when attending a dance lesson would be to suffer an injury of some kind. Of course, if you’re not properly prepared – let’s say you wear the wrong shoes or you aren’t warmed up before you begin, for example – you might be unlucky and suffer an injury. However, there are other situations in which injuries might occur too.
Could an injury mean you might get dance lesson injury compensation?
Compensation payments are sometimes made when someone is hurt during a lesson and they can prove someone else was responsible. For example, it is reasonable to expect your tutor to be trained in teaching the dance you are learning about. If this is not the case, and they have no experience in taking dance classes, this may help support the idea of claiming compensation for injuries you suffer during a class.
The other main topic you need to think about is whether or not the premises your dance lessons are held in are safe for you to use. Health and safety comes into play in every premises, including gyms, sports centres, dance schools and other locations too. This means you have a right to expect the premises to be safe and free from any potential hazards.
Were you hurt in the last three years?
It could be you’re reading this because you suffered an injury in the last three years. If so, you have a chance to try and claim dance lesson injury compensation. This is a possibility if you have proof of negligence as mentioned above. However, you must make sure you have someone on your side who can support you through this process.
