    How to claim TV extra injury compensation


    Working as a TV extra is often seen as a glamorous job, although in reality you’re more likely to spend hours waiting around for your moment in the limelight. It can be fun though, and there’s usually the opportunity to meet the stars from your favourite shows along the way, as well as receive some financial reward for your part. Just don’t expect a starring role. One other thing you may not expect when working as a TV extra is to be injured on the job – but accidents can and do happen on TV sets, whether you’re filming in the studio or on location.

    It isn’t all doom and gloom though; you could make a claim for TV extra injury compensation if you have been injured whilst doing your job. Just ask Accident Advice Helpline whether you have a viable claim and get confidential, no-obligation advice from our team of expert advisors – simple.

    A small part

    You might only have a small part to play in your favourite crime drama or sitcom, but that doesn’t mean you should be put at risk of injury whilst you’re at work. Your employer has a responsibility to ensure that everyone on set, including all cast and crew members, is safe whilst they’re working, and if you have been injured as a result of somebody else’s negligence, you could claim TV Extra injury compensation. But what sort of accidents could happen whilst working as an extra?

    • Slip, trip or fall – for example tripping in the studio over trailing camera cables or a slip or trip on uneven ground or hazards left lying around whilst filming on location
    • Injured by faulty props or equipment
    • Injuries caused by faulty costumes
    • Scalded by somebody spilling a hot drink on you
    • Food poisoning from consuming food purchased at the studio/provided on location
    • Injured by stunts going wrong

    How serious are your injuries?

    It might be that a few cuts and bruises are the worst injury you’ve sustained, but you could be unlucky and suffer fractures, a head injury, back injury or even facial injuries from something going wrong whilst working as an extra. At the end of the day, you’re not to blame for your accident, but don’t worry – Accident Advice Helpline can help you claim personal injury compensation, whatever has happened. Give our friendly team of advisors a call on 0800 689 0500 and find out whether you’re eligible to make a claim. It’s free to get in touch and our lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee** basis, so even if you’re short on cash, you can afford to make a claim with us.
