The Made In Bury Business Awards
The local council, along with a number of local organisations recently organised the Made in Bury Business Awards – or the MIBBAs as they have affectionately become known. This prestigious black tie event was set up to recognise the contributions local business men and women have made to the local community.
Thankfully, no accidents occurred on the night, although the morning after there were a fair few sore heads. However, if an accident had occurred, and if injury had been sustained, then it could have been possible for the injured parties to make Bury ‘no win, no fee’ compensation claims if the accidents in question were not their fault.
Accidents in public places
The event in question was held in the old drill hall, which had been beautifully decorated by the local wedding supplier store. As we said, no accidents did occur on the night, however, Accident Advice Helpline has helped people make Bury ‘no win, no fee’ compensation claims after they have attended such events where the decorations and displays have caused injury.
For example, one client was injured at a Christmas party after the drapes which had been erected around the cloakroom area fell on her. The drapes themselves were 20 feet in length and were of quite a heavy material. When these fell on her she was therefore knocked to the ground, suffered a knee injury as well as concussion. The accident in question had not been her fault, and therefore it was possible for us to make a Bury ‘no win, no fee’ compensation claim on her behalf.
Accidents can also occur at such events as a result of overcrowding. If too many people have been invited to an event that is not designed to handle such a large capacity, then injuries can occur. While black tie events tend not to cause much in the way of stampedes (except perhaps in an emergency evacuation procedure) there can be issues of overcrowding with tables and chairs. If not enough space is left between tables and chair, then it can be easy for guests to trip over chair legs and suffer serious injuries as a result. This is precisely what happened to another Accident Advice Helpline client last year and we helped her make a Bury ‘no win, no fee’ compensation claim against the organisers.
