    How to claim theatre staff injury compensation


    One of the perks of working in a theatre is that you often get to watch the performances for free – that’s if you’re not being kept busy with the multitude of tasks that there are to do. Theatre staff could find themselves involved in any job from ticketing to cleaning, and as you can imagine it’s a busy environment where accidents could happen if care is not taken.

    When you’re at work, your employer is responsible for your safety. Of course, you take some responsibility for your own safety, but you expect the equipment you use and the environment you’re working in to be safe. If you’ve been put at risk by a negligent employer, claiming theatre staff injury compensation may be possible.

    What sort of claims are common?

    Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we have helped a large number of staff to claim theatre staff injury compensation, for a range of different types of accidents and injuries – but here are a few of the most common:

    • Slips, trips and falls – for example slipping on a drink spillage, a wet floor that has been recently cleaned or tripping on a damaged step in the theatre
    • Injured in the staff toilets by tripping on damaged flooring or receiving an electric shock from the hand dryer
    • Food poisoning after eating food prepared on site
    • Electric shock from cleaning equipment such as a vacuum cleaner or the till at the ticket desk
    • Falling from the stage leading to broken bones, head injuries or spinal injuries
    • Injured by sound or lighting equipment falling from height

    However you have been injured, ask yourself who is to blame. If you think more could have been done to prevent your accident from happening, there’s a good chance we can help you make a claim for theatre staff injury compensation. Even if you’re suffering financially after taking time off work after your accident, we can help – our lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis.
