Wedding shows can be exciting, whether you’re the bridge, groom, mother-of-the-bride or a close friend of the couple getting married.
With so many wedding industry suppliers in one space and so much planning to do, an accident at a wedding show could easily happen, whether you’re there to find the perfect venue or look for the dress of your dreams.
You might be wondering, “How could an accident at a wedding show happen?” It’s not like conference venues are the most dangerous places. But accidents have the potential to happen anywhere, at any time, and with so many people in one space, you could be unlucky enough to be injured.
Wedding show accidents
Have you been injured in an accident at a wedding show? It might be that your day out has been ruined or even that you’ve had to put plans for your wedding on hold. But what kind of accidents could happen?
- Slip or trip – possibly caused whilst trying on a dress or on a wet floor caused by food/drink spillage
- Cuts/lacerations from a fall – such as into a display of champagne glasses
- Food poisoning from cake tasting or eating food prepare on site
- Injuries caused by a faulty stall or display stand equipment – for example a sign falling on you
- Injuries caused by the venue itself, such as tripping on damaged flooring or in a stairwell
Your wedding show injuries could be serious, for example, you could suffer a head injury which affects the rest of your life. But even if you’ve come away with cuts, bruises or broken bones, you could find you’re entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation.
Saving for a wedding can be an expensive time and loss of earnings from time off work can seriously impact your finances. But don’t worry – Accident Advice Helpline’s team of personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee basis, so you can afford to claim even if you’re struggling financially.
Your big day – ruined
Don’t let a wedding show accident ruin your big day. If you’ve suffered injuries as a result of an accident caused by somebody else, then you could claim personal injury compensation. Working out who is liable for your accident can sometimes be difficult – who’s to blame if you’ve suffered food poisoning after eating at an outlet at the show?
Well, the company running the stall or outlet could be held liable, as it’s likely their poor food hygiene is behind your illness. Don’t worry though; with 15 years’ experience in personal injury claims, Accident Advice Helpline can work out who’s at fault for your accident.
