Slips, trips and falls are among the more common types of accident that can happen to any one of us. They can potentially lead to a variety of injuries as well, depending on whether we can break our fall or not.
This is probably the more common type of accident at a music venue too, just as is the case at a variety of other locations. Often it will be our own fault for not being properly aware of where we are going. However this is not always the case.
Finding out why you had an accident at a music venue when you were having a good time is a good idea in every case. True, sometimes it will be a simple accident and no one else will be at fault. However there could be a reason why you had an accident and you were injured – a reason you may not currently be aware of.
How might things go wrong?
The owner of a music venue has a duty of care towards their employees, to be sure. But they also have a duty of care to protect all those who go into their venue to see a gig or performance.
As such they have to make sure they follow the regulations laid down in the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. The various elements of this Act will ensure people are safer than they might otherwise be in these situations.
Various people do still have the right to consider making compensation claims if they’ve been injured though. Accident Advice Helpline is one of a number of companies to have heard from these people.
