Sometimes we are asked some surprising questions and one of the most unusual has to be ‘I was having a sculpture of myself made but we had an accident, can I claim?’ The good news is that the answer to this question might well be yes.
If you have been working with a sculptor as a model then there may well be dangers that you have not thought of. Sculptors work with all types of sharp implements and materials and unless a range of safety measures are in place there is every chance you could suffer cuts and bruises as a result, or injuries that are even worse.
You may need to take time away from work and as you were not injured on your own work premises, it is unlikely that you will get full sick pay for the whole time that you are off work recovering. This means that you could find that you are unable to pay some or all of the bills that come through your door. How will you manage then? The answer could be for you to claim for financial compensation.
How do I get financial compensation?
Getting financial compensation is much easier than you might think, particularly when you use a good law firm like Accident Advice Helpline. If you do need to make a personal injury claim then you are better off with a law firm than trying to complete the process on your own. All you need to do is contact our free 24-hour helpline and tell one of our advisors all the details of what happened. A professional sculptor should have liability insurance in place that will cover him or her for any accidents that happen on the premises. Any claim will be made against this insurance.
We will not ask you to pay anything for your legal fees upfront as we only operate on a no-win, no-fee* system. This means that no matter what your own personal financial situation, you can get your claim started and begin taking steps towards getting your life back on track.
What can I expect?
From Accident Advice Helpline you can expect a completely professional service. From the moment that you call to speak to a member of our team to the point where your claim is completed, we aim to make you feel as though you are in good hands. We will need to take a lot of information from you and you may need to provide some medical evidence to support your claim.
Having an accident while posing for a sculptor is not something that happens to everybody so you may wonder if it is valid grounds for a claim, but Accident Advice Helpline has definitely seen stranger cases. As it costs nothing to find out more, there is no reason not to pick up the phone and speak to us about whether or not you are eligible to claim for an sculpting accident.
