    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    I was injured on a date, can I claim?

    If you have been the victim of an accident while out on a date, you may want to ask a legal expert, ‘I was injured on a date, can I claim?’

    Dating should be an exciting activity. Even if you don’t like the person you’re on a date with, you can often enjoy the film, meal or experience you’re participating in together. You can also have a bad date, but it is rare to be involved in an accident. Of course, this is unlikely to be much consolation if you were injured. To find out about your legal right to compensation and to ask for general advice, contact the personal injury specialists at Accident Advice Helpline today.

    Your dating accident

    To start a dating accident claim, we need to prove that someone else caused your injury – whether it was physical or mental. You could potentially claim against your date, or someone else around you at the time. Perhaps your date arranged an extreme sporting event, such as skydiving or going into a wild animal enclosure in a safari park. You may have expressed your doubts about the experience but felt forced to go ahead with it, or pressured into doing something unsafe. If it can be shown that your injury occurred against your will, this could give you a strong basis for an accident claim.

    You could also have been injured by waiting staff in a restaurant, or support staff at an event. You could have contracted food poisoning or been given insufficient instructions on how to do an activity, leading to an accident. When you pay a private business for a service, whether a meal or an experience, you have a legal right to expect that health and safety regulations will be observed. A failure to do so could make the business or its staff liable and force them to pay you compensation.

    Accident Advice Helpline

    Accident Advice Helpline was established in 2000 to help people make claims for accidents they did not cause themselves. If you were injured on a date in the last three years and your injury was someone else’s fault, you could be entitled to financial compensation. To check if you have a case and what your compensation could be worth, simply call our free, 24-hour helpline on 0800 180 4123.
