Call the personal injury specialists at Accident Advice Helpline today if you are in need of pole dancing accident advice, and find out if you are entitled to compensation.
Pole dancing was once only seen in sleazy bars and strip clubs; however in recent years it has become a popular fitness activity with classes available for all ages and abilities. For the majority, pole dancing will provide a fun way to lose weight and tone muscles. But as with all sporting activities, accidents can happen, resulting in a potentially serious injury. If this accident was caused by the negligence of others you may be entitled to compensation.
Pole dancing uses muscles in a way that they would not normally be used in everyday life so it is no surprise that pulled or strained muscles are a common pole dancing accident. More seriously, a fall could result in broken bones. Some pole dancing moves involve hanging upside down from your legs. A fall from that position could result in a permanent brain or spinal injury.
What to do
If you have suffered a pole dancing accident the most important thing to do is to seek medical assistance. As well as hopefully speeding up your recovery the medical records will be used by your solicitor if you choose to make a personal injury claim.
As soon as you feel able, record all the details of your accident and ask any potential witnesses to do the same. Also, keep a record of any expenses you incur as a result of your accident. These might include costs of treatment and therapy, transport to medical appointments and time when you are unable to work. In a more serious accident, adaptations to your home and transport may be necessary and costly.
As soon as possible, and definitely within three years of your accident, pick up the phone and call the helpline at Accident Advice Helpline. Our friendly advisors will take the details of your accident and will be able to tell you if you are entitled to compensation. They will even be able to tell you how much you are likely to be able to claim. If you decide to make a claim your case will be handled by one of our solicitors who specialise in your injury type.
Making a claim
We understand that making a claim may seem daunting. You may be worrying about the impact on your life, the expense, and even the impact on the negligent party. At Accident Advice Helpline we are committed to making the claims process as easy as possible. Our solicitors will hold consultations by phone when possible so you do not have to travel, and may be able to settle your claim without you appearing in court. Our lawyers work on a no win no fee basis so there are no upfront costs for you to worry about. And do not feel guilty about the negligent party. Anyone running pole dancing exercise classes should carry indemnity insurance for just this reason. Your claim may encourage them to review their safety procedures and prevent a similar accident happening to someone else.
