Speed dating should be a fun and exciting experience and one hopes not to need speed dating injury advice, but accidents can and do happen. In today’s fast-paced world it can often be hard to meet a partner so it is perhaps not surprising that speed dating has become a popular way of trying to find that special someone.
What is Speed Dating?
Speed dating is an opportunity for single people to meet as many as ten other singles in one night. Each date lasts just seven minutes and each participant is given a nametag and scorecard. Each single is paired up with another single and they can discuss any subject aside from their careers and where they live. After seven minutes, a bell is rung and the men move on to the next single woman. If at the end of the evening there is mutual interest between some participants these participants are provided with each other’s phone numbers and it is then up to them how they proceed.
Speed dating may sound daunting, but it can also be fun. The organisers arrange for all the participants to meet in a bar or a cafe and injuries do occur due to a variety of reasons, such as poorly-lit areas, individuals becoming drunk and unruly, drinks being dropped, resulting in broken glass and spillages on walkways, uneven or loose carpeting and trailing cables from vending machines. All of these are hazards and it is the responsibility of the owner of the club or bar to ensure that everything possible has been done to minimise the risk to people who use the premises.
Making a claim
Slips, trips or falls are common accidents and they may result in only minor bruising. However, they can also result in more serious injuries such as dislocated joints, fractures and head injuries. Things that could be easily avoided, such as wet floors without warning signs, cause many such accidents.
