    Compensation for movie set injuries

    Working on a movie or film set might seem like a glamorous job. However, it is hard work and can be quite boring at times. After all, shots need to be set up, equipment needs to be put in position and everyone else needs to wait until this happens. While there might be famous people around, there is a chance everything could get very dull on the whole.

    Movie set injuries are fortunately quite rare, but there have been instances where people have been hurt while working on such a set. Many people work in many different roles while working on a film. There could be cameramen, painters, runners, actors, set designers and many other people as well. Any one of them could have an accident if proper care isn’t taken to ensure this is not the case.

    Working at height can be a danger

    Working at height is not an uncommon situation on a movie set. There could be many instances where a cameraman is on a crane or other similar piece of equipment that allows them to shoot from a height. There might be other workers required to work at height while constructing a set for example.

    Even when people are working on the ground, there are many things that could potentially go wrong. Slips, trips and falls are common enough in a variety of situations, for instance. However, in every instance the people in charge of the film set have a duty to make sure they care for everyone who is there. If someone is injured, they could have a chance to try and prove that negligence was the cause of those injuries.

    Finding out more

    Since a film set can potentially be a location where all kinds of things could possibly go wrong (even though they usually don’t), it is important to seek out advice if you are injured in this situation. Any injury could mean you are unable to work for a period of time. If you are self-employed this can mean no income until you are recovered.
