If you are a model who has suffered an accidental injury at work then you may have wondered, ‘I had a modelling accident at a photo shoot, can I claim?’ An accident at work is something that our expert legal team at Accident Advice Helpline specialise in and we are able to offer personalised advice to models that may have been injured on a photo shoot.
As a model it is likely that you have been presented with a variety of settings and locations to work in. These aspects of modelling can be seen as benefits of the job, and in many cases a successful shoot is had by all. There are cases, however, when an oversight has resulted in the accidental injury of a model. It may be that unsafe ground caused a trip, slip, or fall, or the negligent actions of another party have resulted in injury.
It is the responsibility of the model’s employer to ensure that health and safety guidelines are adhered to and that you, as a model, are not put in danger in any way while performing your work. If you believe that you have been made to work in unsafe conditions, and have suffered an injury as a result, then you should seriously consider pursuing a personal injury claim.
Making a claim for compensation is a simple process that is dealt with primarily by our in-house solicitors and highly trained advisers. The first step is simple, Accident Advice Helpline operates a 24/7 free telephone helpline that will help to answer questions you may have concerning your claim. By contacting us on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone, you can start to get the ball rolling on your compensation claim.
From here, if you are intending to make a claim our legal experts can be notified. They will proceed to collate evidence pertaining to your individual case. The kinds of evidence the solicitors will be looking for are things like medical records, which will show the severity of the injury at the time of treatment, and also the type of treatment needed. Photographic evidence is also important when making a claim for compensation.
It is always beneficial to your case if there is some photographic evidence of the cause of the accident that inflicted the injury. This can be in the form of camera phone photos of the location or cause of the accident, which clearly show the source of the mishap and its surrounding area. Photographs of the injuries received as a result of the accident will also assist in the claim process.
