What is a lighting injury?
The three main dangers associated with lighting injuries are heat, electrocution, and crushing caused by falling components. While you cannot claim for an injury that is the result of personal negligence, such as refusing to adhere to clear safety protocols, you may be eligible to make a claim if your injuries were caused by the negligence of a third party. This would apply if you were instructed to work on a lighting rig before having received the proper training.
In this case, any resulting injuries would be the fault of the superior who instructed you to perform a dangerous task without the right information or protection. This is a legal breach of care and responsibility can be proven during the claims process.
The industrial environments, in which heavy duty lighting rigs are found, tend to be fairly noisy and distracting places. Therefore, it is vital that the correct safety regulations are put in place to protect workers. If they are not and an injury is sustained, you could be eligible for a significant financial award.
What steps do I need to take next?
If you think that you might be eligible to pursue a claim, or you would like reliable lighting injury advice from qualified experts, call our free 24-hour helpline on 0800 180 4123. We will record the details of your accident and injuries as well as assess any evidence that you may wish to use as support for your compensation case. If you would prefer a call back, please text ‘claim365’ to 88010.
The stronger your case, the more chance you have of walking out of the situation with a satisfying compensation package. If possible, take clear colour photographs of your injuries and the site at which they were sustained. This is not an essential requirement, but it can make a big difference.
