You have the same rights as anyone else to make a personal injury claim if you have been injured on a TV show. The producers of a TV show have a duty of care to protect participants and any staff that are on set. If you were injured and you think that someone else was at fault, then you may be owed money. There is a three-year deadline for personal injury claims, so we suggest starting the process as soon as you feel fit to do so. You can ask a family member to do this for you if you are still felling the effects of the accident you were involved in.
Common injuries on TV shows are slips and falls. We deal with many claims of this nature and have several solicitors specialised in the area. Trips and falls can take place anywhere on a TV set if health and safety measures are not adhered to. For example, if you took part in a quiz show, you could make a claim if you fell over a cable or other object that should not have been there while on set. You could also seek compensation if you work as a cameraman and sustained serious injuries after falling from a balcony or other structure.
If you are working at height then special measures need to be put in place to minimise the risks involved. The producers and owners of the premises have a duty to ensure that surfaces and structures are safe. They must also carry out regular maintenance checks. They may be liable if they failed to spot the danger or did not warn you about the risks involved. You can use our 24-hour free helpline for more advice about TV show accident claims.
You should notify the producers of the TV show about your injuries within two days of the accident. You must also have received medical assistance from someone at the scene or in hospital to be eligible for a claim. If we can help you with a claim, our expert solicitors will immediately begin to gather evidence to prove a third party’s negligence. This evidence typically consists of witness statements and any photographs you can provide.
