Are you employed in the TV industry? It can be an exciting industry to work in, whether you’re an actor, TV presenter, TV crew or an assistant. But working in such a fast-paced industry doesn’t come without its risks, and your employer has a duty to keep you safe at work – the same as in any job. If you’ve suffered injuries at work and believe that your employer, or even a colleague, is to blame, then Accident Advice Helpline could help you claim TV industry injury compensation. There’s a three-year time limit in place for personal injury claims, so it’s a good idea to get in touch with us as soon as possible after your accident, to make sure you don’t miss out.
How have you been injured?
Making a claim for TV industry injury compensation is possible if you have been injured due to somebody else’s negligence. Here are a few examples of the types of accidents which could happen:
- Slip, trip or fall on set or on location whilst filming – you could trip over trailing camera cables or hazards on location, slip on a wet floor if somebody has spilt their coffee or fall down a flight of stairs in the studio
- Fall from height
- Scalded if somebody spills a hot drink on you
- Food poisoning from consuming food provided at the studio or on location
Injured by another person – for example an assistant colliding with you on set
Injured by faulty props, scenery or costumes
- Injured by objects falling from height such as lighting, video or audio equipment
- Electric shock from faulty equipment such as a microphone
Some injuries sustained may be minor – for example you might suffer cuts and bruises after tripping over trailing camera wires (which should always be taped down). But you might be unlucky enough to suffer a serious injury such as an electric shock or head injuries after a fall from height.
