What is a Zumba injury?
There are a wide variety of accidents and injuries that can occur whilst practising and performing the art of Zumba. A dancing environment can be noisy and distracting, making it easy to suffer a trip or fall. In order to be eligible for compensation the accident (and subsequent injury) must be the fault of a third party; i.e. the people or authority responsible for the safety and maintenance of the environment in which the activity takes place.
You cannot claim for injuries resulting from personal negligence, for example, a failure to adhere to clear safety warnings or signals. This also applies to injuries that could be the result of personal shortcomings; for example, poor eyesight or reduced motor skills. However, you may be eligible for compensation if you were involved in a Zumba accident that was the result of poorly-maintained equipment or an unsuitable environment.
In most circumstances it is the duty of the company that owns the building to make sure that hazardous areas are clearly signposted, and that suitable measures are in place to protect dancers from dangerous trips and falls. There are various government safety regulations pertaining to public performance or classes, and if these are not rigidly upheld, there is a case to be made for remuneration.
What steps should I take next?
If you think that you might be eligible to claim financial compensation, or you would like Zumba injury advice from qualified experts, call our free 24-hour helpline. We will record the details of your accident and injuries, as well as assess any evidence that you may wish to use as support for your compensation claim. This is a standard procedure and is carried out in relation to all types of claim.
A strong case is essential if you are to be guaranteed a high chance of success. This means that clear colour photographs of injuries, and the environment in which they were sustained, will be of great use. They are not essential, but they do help a great deal. For example, if your injury was caused by a damaged or badly-maintained environment, that is unsuitable for Zumba dancing, you are more likely to receive compensation if you can provide clear evidence of neglect.
