Many of us watch films without being properly aware of what goes on behind the scenes to make the final film. It is perhaps just as well this is the case, as it allows the magic to continue for us.
As anyone who works as part of a film crew will know, there are many different roles involved in making the final film look its very best. Cameramen, directors and actors and so on are very familiar to us, but many other people also play roles on a film crew. These could include painters, runners and electricians for example. Anyone working on a film set could have the potential to be injured if something were to go wrong.
Health and safety
When you think of workplaces around the UK you probably won’t think of a film set among them. However, these are workplaces for many, even though they will tend to move around as circumstances dictate. The need for appropriate health and safety measures is just as vital as it is in other businesses. This means there should be little opportunity for anyone to consider claiming film crew injury compensation.
Of course if you work on a film set and you are injured in some way, you might have a chance to make such a claim. A lot would depend on how you were injured and whether anyone else was responsible for it. Sometimes negligence is the reason why an injury occurs, and if this is the case you could certainly try for film crew injury compensation.
Finding out whether you could claim
Knowing where you stand is not always easy. Did you slip or fall and was it someone else’s fault you did so? Did you fall from height? Were you properly trained? Were you issued with the proper equipment you could do your job with?
