If you apply make-up to individuals in the film, television, or entertainment industries and have recently been injured while working, then Accident Advice Helpline can offer you the best make-up artist accident advice. The profession is not usually dangerous, but there are circumstances where serious accidents can occur. If someone was to blame for the accident and you sustained injuries that affected your personal and working life, then you could make a compensation claim to recover the costs. To get started, call one of our advisers from a landline on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone.
Risks and negligence
Injuries to make-up artists are rare although there can be hazards and dangers depending on the location or set where they are working. For example, if you are working at a fashion event, then you may have slipped on a wet floor, or tripped over an object that should have been cleared away before you entered the building. Slips and falls are the most common injuries we deal with, and they can happen anywhere if a third party such as a building owner does not follow health and safety measures. If this negligence resulted in you sustaining injuries, then you have the right to file a claim against them for damages.
The freelance nature of the profession can mean that make-up artists often frequent many different working environments. There can be a risk of being struck by falling objects in certain environments. For example, you may have sustained head injuries after being hit by an object, which had carelessly been left on a nearby shelf, or by a loose tile that should have been spotted by the staff of the premises. Your employer has a duty of care to protect you, so they must put safeguards and maintenance checks in place to minimise the risk of a serious accident.
Accident Advice Helpline was established in 2000 in order to aid clients with the claims process. We have a team of expert solicitors ready to fight for your cause. There is no red tape and you do not have to pay anything upfront in order to file your claim due to our ‘no win, no fee’ policy. You can make a claim with us if you were involved in an accident during the last three years and suffered injuries that were treated by medical staff at the time. To support your claim, our solicitors will require sufficient evidence, so any information and photographs you can provide will be beneficial to your cause.
Why should I file a claim?
A compensation claim can help you to get back on your feet after an injury. It will not only fund medical fees, but also supplement any income you may have lost if you have been forced to quit your make-up job. Someone needs to share the burden of compensation so that you are not made to pay for everything. You should not be alone in coping with the mental and financial impact of a serious injury if a third party was to blame. If you think you may be eligible, use our free 24-hour helpline for further advice and to get paired with a solicitor. It could take only a few minutes to improve your financial future.
