Whether you’re a hardcore gamer or like to play video games casually on your time off, video game conventions are a great way to keep track of what’s happening in the industry, find out about the latest games and consoles and maybe even get the opportunity to play new games release for Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo consoles.
With so many people in one space, conventions can get pretty busy, and there’s the possibility for accidents to happen. If you have suffered a video game convention injury, you could find yourself needing time off work to recover – you might even need medical treatment in hospital for serious injuries. But who’s to blame for your accident?
If the answer is somebody else, such as the convention organisers or venue owners, then Accident Advice Helpline is here to help. We’ll get you the compensation you deserve, on a 100% no win, no fee* basis. So that leaves you more cash for the latest games releases.
