Being involved in an accident whilst at an event can be a huge blow, ruining your enjoyment as well as having longer term consequences. However, there is help available to you if you decide to make a claim for your injuries, and Accident Advice Helpline will be more than happy to answer your questions about compensation.
Examples of accidents at events
There are many examples of accidents at events which you could be involved with, such as:
- Slips, trips and falls due to obstacles, spillages, etc.
- Falls and trampling due to ill-managed crowds
- Collapse of structures, etc
- Collisions with vehicles on site
It’s hard to prepare for these types of accidents but the event organiser should have risk assessments in place. It is their duty to ensure the safe running of the event and make sure all health and safety regulations are followed correctly.
