    How to claim orchestra injury compensation


    Orchestras can be seen at live theatre shows, at recitals and on other occasions where live music is part of the show. While being part of an orchestra is rarely a dangerous experience, there are occasions where things may go wrong.

    Accidents that occur when an orchestra is playing or when they are rehearsing or preparing for a performance are quite rare. Whoever is in charge of the premises should make sure the orchestra can set up safely and is in no danger of being injured because of a lack of health and safety measures.

    How might someone in an orchestra be injured?

    Most people in an orchestra will be seated while playing their respective instruments. If the chairs provided are not in good condition, they may lead to one or more members being hurt as the chairs collapse.

    There might be other occasions when whoever is in control of the orchestra does not pay proper attention to their health and well-being. For instance, if the members of the orchestra are told to continue practising in a seated position for hours on end without a break, this might lead to injuries caused by poor posture. In this case, the person in charge may be negligent by not allowing anyone to take a break for their well-being.

    Finding evidence

    Every case in which orchestra injury compensation may be warranted must be supported by appropriate evidence. This might mean getting witness statements about what happened, or photographic evidence of injuries sustained, as well as any other information that might help to support a compensation claim.
