Singing wouldn’t seem to be a particularly hazardous thing to do, would it? For the most part you would be right. Some singers develop nodules on their vocal chords because they use them so much, but other than that there is very little to be concerned about.
Of course, the venues at which someone performs can be potentially hazardous under some isolated circumstances. It is the duty of the owner of the venue to make sure it is safe and ready for any singer to use if they are booked to perform there. While most singers will perform without incident, there is a chance that someone might be hurt once in a while, and through no fault of their own either.
So how might singer injury compensation come into play?
If you are a singer you would expect the stage on which you perform to be safe and ready to use. If this is not the case because someone has been negligent in not doing their job properly and you are injured, a claim for singer injury compensation might be made.
Here’s another example. Normally a stage will have lighting rigged up above it to ensure everyone in the audience can see the singer and their band. If one of those lights were to fall onto the singer, it could cause serious damage. Since it was the responsibility of the person dealing with the lighting to ensure everything was securely attached, they could be found negligent.
