    Exhibition drill accident claim


    Exhibition drills can be highly intricate, visually stunning displays of soldierly training and it is possible that you are considering filing an exhibition drill accident claim. Many exhibition drills involve music, ceremonial costumes and replica firearms or other striking equipment. They are typically highly popular events, with large audiences coming to see military tattoos or other drill events. Although most exhibition drills pass without any issue, sometimes its participants are at risk of an injury. If you were involved in an accident, you may be thinking of starting an exhibition drill accident claim.

    Exhibition drills

    Participants in exhibition drills have often trained for a long time to get their performance just right. Drills are, of course, very detailed and require a lot of concentration and skill. The soldiers or other personnel have to move in just the right order, at just the right time, for the overall formation to look right. As most drills are performed to music, this helps overall timing, but the movements have to be learned, remembered and executed at exactly set times.

    This exactitude mixed with a certain flamboyance is, of course, what attracts many spectators to exhibition drills. However, sometimes things can go wrong, leading to a breakdown of the formation. Such stops have likely happened a lot of times during training, and may happen during the live performance, without any serious risk of injury.

    Where things can go more seriously wrong is when there is a certain force in collisions between the drill participants or if the equipment used strikes someone directly. If this happened to you, you could be in line for accident compensation.
