    How to claim event staff injury compensation


    Working as event staff may mean you get to attend the latest sporting event or gig, or it could mean assisting at a conference or exhibition. Whatever your role, event staff can be called upon at short notice to ensure events go smoothly and spectators or visitors stay safe. If you’ve been injured whilst working at an event, you might be wondering if you’re eligible to claim event staff injury compensation. If somebody else is responsible for your accident, then the answer is yes, you may have a viable claim. Accident Advice Helpline’s team of expert advisors can offer confidential, no-obligation advice that could help you decide whether or not to proceed with a claim.

    How have you been injured?

    Event staff at a sporting event such as a football match or a concert at a stadium will usually be expected to assist with crowd control, keeping spectators safe and carrying out checks of the venue before, during and after the event. They might also be called on to assist police and emergency services in the event of an incident. You could be injured in a slip, trip or fall accident on a wet floor or slippery steps, suffer crush injuries after a fire breaks out and crowds rush for the stadium exit or even be struck down by food poisoning after eating food prepared on-site.

    If you’re working at an event such as a conference or exhibition, you could be injured in a variety of different ways. Perhaps you have suffered injuries after a banner or sign fell on you, or you have sustained burns from an electric shock after coming into contact with a faulty socket or appliances? You could be injured in the venue car park after being hit by a car, or slip on icy ground outside the venue (but on their premises) and suffer broken bones, cuts, bruises or even a head injury.

    Making a claim

    Event staff usually work for an agency, and it’s the agency’s responsibility to ensure your safety whilst you’re at work. Depending on your contract and the type of event you’re working at, either the agency or venue management could be held liable for your injuries – but you don’t need to worry about that, just give Accident Advice Helpline a call on 0800 689 0500 and we’ll be able to tell you if you have a viable claim for event staff injury compensation.
