    How to claim public event injury compensation


    Public events such as gigs, street fayres, markets and even impromptu performances by street artists are usually lots of fun. You might spend your Saturday at a local market buying treats to eat for the weekend or attend a live music gig at the pub on a week night with your friends. But what happens if you’re injured whilst attending a public event? Well, the event organisers could be held responsible, as it’s their duty to ensure that members of the public stay safe whilst attending their event.

    Accident Advice Helpline could help you to claim public event injury compensation if you have been injured and somebody else is to blame. Our team of advisors and personal injury lawyers has 15 years’ experience specialising in personal injury law, so you can trust us with your claim.

    What’s gone wrong?

    You might be wondering what could go wrong at a public event – it depends what type of event you’re attending. For example, you could be injured by a falling sign at a market, be struck down by food poisoning after eating food from a street food stall or be injured after tripping over boxes of stock left lying around. You might buy a product which injures you, such as a beauty product which leads to a serious allergic reaction or food that has been contaminated with nuts, when you have a nut allergy.

    At a live music gig, you could be injured by faulty sound equipment, which could give you an electric shock or lead to hearing loss. Or perhaps you’ve suffered crush injuries after a crowd of fans rushed the stage. You could even be hit by falling lights or sound equipment and be left seriously injured; even paralysed. The event organisers are responsible for ensuring that the venue is a safe place for members of the public to be – and if you’re injured as a result of their negligence, claiming public event injury compensation could be on the cards.
