Accident Advice Helpline has been advising and assisting people who have suffered personal injury because of accidents since the year 2000. Our team of experienced lawyers are available to provide help and assistance with regards to your trapeze accident claim.
Accidents can cause pain and suffering. Loss of work while recovering and other health costs can also put a heavy financial strain on you and your loved ones. By making a claim you are taking steps towards securing compensation to cover those financial losses and personal hurt. If you need long-term care following your trapeze accident, the amount of compensation won can also cover those costs.
Can I make a claim?
If you have been injured in a trapeze accident while rehearsing or performing you have every right to make a claim providing the incident was not caused by your actions. If you suffered the accident because of negligence or recklessness then it is unlikely you would win a claim for compensation. However, if you suffered injury through no fault of your own, such as faulty equipment then you may be able to make a claim.
Sometimes things are not quite so clear cut and it may not be immediately apparent who was to blame for your accident, either yourself or another party. Whatever the cause of your trapeze accident it is in your best interests to seek expert advice about making a claim from Accident Advice Helpline.
How do I contact you?
You can contact us round the clock thanks to our own 24-hour Helpline. You can also contact us via text or by completing our 30-second test.
What information will I need to give you?
We will have to determine whether you do have grounds for a claim so we will need to know as much information about your trapeze accident as possible. Obviously your own recollections of the accident will be important, but we also need to know what those who witnessed the incident actually saw. This is why we advise people to take the names and contact details of anyone who saw the accident which led to injury.
Based on the information we receive we will be able to determine if there are grounds for a claim. We also need to identify who the claim should be made against, such as the people who fitted the equipment or the owner of the venue.
A doctor’s report will also be very important should we decide you should make a claim. The report will determine the extent of your injuries and could go a long way to determining the amount of compensation awarded.
Any income lost and additional expenses relating to your injuries should be noted and receipts kept as those figures will be included in the claim.
Here at Accident Advice Helpline our solicitors work on a no win, no fee* basis, which means you will not have to pay any money up front. This should give you added assurance when approaching us about a trapeze accident claim.
