    Compensation for theatre slips, trips and falls


    Most of us go to the cinema from time to time, but a trip to the theatre is a different experience altogether. Here you see the performance live in front of you, as actors take to the stage to perform a show, a musical or a play.

    Many people really look forward to going somewhere like this, whether it is local or in London’s West End. In any case you would expect the theatre to be in good condition and to provide a safe experience for you to enjoy. You would not expect to be the victim of theatre slips, trips and falls of any kind.

    Are these incidents quite common?

    No – in fact they are anything but. In some situations there could be the potential for someone to be hurt as a result of a simple accident like this. For example the stairs at the theatre may not be well-lit, or they could be fitted with loose carpeting that leads you to lose your footing. In some cases there could be a lack of lighting in the theatre itself that causes you to fall.

    Even though an incident like this may seem to be quite basic and innocent, a slip, trip or fall can lead to a serious accident. You might lose your footing and fall back, hitting your head on something sharp. This could lead to serious head injuries and while this is uncommon it can potentially happen.

    Avoiding theatre slips, trips and falls

    While such incidents can largely be avoided if you take good care, there are other times when you may not be able to avoid this. If this is the case you could end up suffering from an injury that could have been prevented. All it takes is for the theatre owners to follow proper health and safety procedures for this to be the case – and most of the time they do just that.
