If you’re into your body art or saving up to get your first ink, a tattoo convention can seem like a dream come true. World-class tattooists from across the globe, tattoo demonstrations, seminars and the opportunity to get your very own body art – there’s something for everybody. But what if you’ve suffered a tattoo convention injury during your visit?
It might be that you’ve been injured by an unqualified tattooist who has left you with an infection or damage to your skin. Or it could simply be that you’ve suffered a tattoo convention injury after a slip, trip or fall.
Here at Accident Advice Helpline we have assisted customers to claim for a range of different types of accident and injury at tattoo conventions, on a 100% no win, no fee basis.
Common tattoo convention accidents
You might be wondering, “How could somebody be injured at a tattoo convention?” Well, here are a few of the most common types of accident we have come across during our 15 years’ experience in the personal injury industry:
- Slip on a wet floor – this could be caused by spilt tattoo ink or simply a food/drink spillage
- Tattoo injuries often caused by inexperienced tattooists
- Injuries caused by needles which have not been properly sterilised, for example diseases such as hepatitis
- Food poisoning from consuming contaminated food at the convention
- Trip or fall over obstacles such as boxes of stock, damaged flooring etc.
Injured by faulty merchandise
If you have been injured at a tattoo convention, what are your options? Well, you could make a claim for personal injury compensation if somebody else caused your accident – but you’ll need to do so within the three-year time limit.
What’s the point in claiming?
You might wonder if it’s worth making a claim for personal injury compensation – we think so. If a tattoo artist has left you with a condition that could affect the rest of your life, or even if you have needed to take a few weeks off work after suffering from food poisoning, somebody else is at fault.
Your personal injury settlement could cover the cost of medical treatment or household bills whilst you’re off work recovering from your illness or injuries, which could make this a much less stressful time for you and your family.
