Whether you work at a TV studio, are involved in the production of a show (as cast or crew) or are a member of the studio audience when your favourite show is being filmed, there’s usually a lot going on at TV studios, which means accidents have the potential to happen at any time. But if you have suffered minor or serious injuries at a TV studio, there’s also the potential you could make a claim for TV studio injury compensation. You’ll want to get in touch with a reputable personal injury lawyer to find out if you could make a claim, and Accident Advice Helpline has been endorsed by our patron, TV personality Dame Esther Rantzen. So you know you can trust us to get you the compensation you deserve.
Common TV studio injuries
Working on set at a TV studio could put you at risk of a range of different injuries. You could be injured after tripping on trailing camera cables, scalded when a crew member spills a hot drink on you or even injured after a trip on damaged flooring or stairs. If you’re a member of the studio audience, you could trip on damaged stairs or uneven flooring, or inadequate lighting in the studio could put you at risk of slipping or tripping, and if you hit your head on a chair or railing as you fall, you could suffer life-changing injuries.
Food poisoning is also common amongst those working in TV studios – food may be prepared on-site or ordered from outside catering, and the whole cast and crew could be struck down by food poisoning after eating contaminated food. Cameras or lights could fall from height and cause serious head or spinal injuries, or damaged equipment could even cause electric shock. At the end of the day, whether you are a member of staff or an audience member who has been injured, the TV studio owners could be held responsible for your accident.
