If you have been injured at the opera through no fault of your own within the last three years, you might be able to make an opera house accident claim. There is no reason why you should keep quiet about an accident that could have been prevented just because it happened in an opera house, and if someone else is to blame for your injury then you may very well have legal grounds to claim financial compensation from them.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we believe that everyone should take responsibility for their actions, whether they are ordinary individuals, property owners or organisations like opera companies. Those bodies that earn a living from the public have a particular duty to ensure that the public remain safe and secure when they enter an environment managed by said body. In other words, if you are paying to attend the opera, you should not have to worry about tripping on loose carpeting, falling down the stairs due to a broken handrail, or being trapped on a wooden balcony with no exits in the event of a fire. If any of these incidents should cause an injury, you should be entitled to compensation. The 30-second claims calculator on our website will give you a rough idea of how much you could stand to win if you file an opera house accident claim.
What qualifies for an opera house accident claim?
We have already briefly mentioned above some examples of the kind of opera house accidents that could justify a compensation claim. The essential feature that they have in common is that they could and should have been prevented if the managers of the opera house had ensured that the venue was properly maintained. Other examples might include having your hearing damaged by excessively high notes at high volume when you were not warned in advance of the production, or if vibrations from the music caused part of the opera house ceiling to collapse, resulting in injury. Again, the important factor is that these accidents were caused by another party’s negligence.
