Whether you’re the one getting married, playing bridesmaid to your best friend or even the Mother-of-the-bride, wedding shows are a great day out for anyone involved in the upcoming nuptials.
They’re a chance to scope out the best suppliers for everything from the wedding dress to the cake, and you can get some amazing deals by shopping around. You might even come across suppliers you would never have heard of otherwise.
With your mind firmly on your big day, being involved in an accident is the last thing on your mind, but if you’re the victim of a wedding show injury, you could find your white wedding plans put on hold.
Those who have suffered a wedding show injury can be affected physically, emotionally and financially – so if somebody else is to blame, why not get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline to see if you could make a claim for personal injury compensation?
Wedding show injuries – what are the most common?
Slips, trips and falls are amongst the most common injuries sustained at wedding shows. With so many brides-to-be in one space, accidents can and do happen. All it takes is a food or drink spillage or a bride failing to pay attention when trying on a wedding dress and the next thing you know, somebody has broken their ankle or even suffered a head injury after a fall. You’d be surprised how many people can be affected by food poisoning at a wedding show too.
Whether you’ve become ill after tasting cake or have eaten at a food stall or outlet at the show, food poisoning can spread quickly through contaminated meat or other food which has not been properly prepared or cooked, and you could find yourself feeling very unwell.
There’s even the opportunity for more serious injuries to occur – for example you could be injured by faulty display stand equipment such as signs falling from height and causing head injuries or suffer back injuries caused by tripping on damaged flooring at the wedding show venue.
