Accident Advice Helpline provides TV show accident advice to individuals that have been injured while filming or working on a TV set. We can file a claim on your behalf if the accident you were involved in could have been prevented. The accident may have been caused by a person who had not been adequately trained, or be due to an object that had not been flagged as a safety hazard. Whatever the circumstances, we can help if you have been injured during the last three years. Ring our 24-hour free helpline today for the best personal injury claims advice.
The producers of a TV show must ensure that all staff and participants are safe. If you are taking part in an entertainment show where activities are central to the program, then procedures must be put in place to prevent accidents from occurring. For example, staff at the location where the show is being filmed must check surfaces for spillages or other dangers and make sure that any supplied equipment is well maintained. The premises must also be fit for purpose. For example, you could make a no win, no fee claim if you sustained a head injury after being hit by a loose piece of material. You may also be owed money if you are a cameraman and you fell from a structure that was not safe and broke your back or a limb.
Making a claim
There is a three-year deadline for all personal injury claims. You must also have received some sort of medical treatment from staff at the scene or at a hospital following the accident. A claim will benefit you and your family in many ways. It can supplement your income if you have been forced to take an absence of leave due to your injuries. It can also pay for counselling if you have been traumatised by the accident and your doctor has recommended it as the best course of action. A claim can cover any out-of-pocket expenses. You should not have been inconvenienced by the accident in any way.

We will need to prove that the producers of the TV show or the building owner was negligent. Our solicitors will do everything they can to support your claim, but you can help us by writing down everything you can remember about the accident. Gathering witness statements also helps to support your claim as it helps to determine who is at fault, as will photographs and other visual aids.
There has never been a better time to get started, so call us today to get your life back on track.
