Do you need help from an East Sussex law firm following an accident at a festival?
Although good weather can never be guaranteed in the United Kingdom, there are many outdoor events and festivals which take place during the summer months. Whilst event organisers do hope for good weather, they normally have contingency plans in place just in case a storm occurs.
Whilst most events are able to go ahead in bad weather, if the weather was to compromise the safety of attendees, the event organisers may be forced to postpone or cancel the event altogether. Although this can be costly for organisers, the health and safety of attendees and staff must be of paramount importance.
Unfortunately, bad weather can make things more unsafe so it’s important to take care if you do attend an outdoor event or festival and the sun isn’t shining. As many larger events take place in fields or an agricultural land, a large amount of rain can create a lot of mud which can make it difficult to move around. In such conditions you could be more likely to slip or fall and you could suffer an accident or injury as a result.
When you attend these types of events, the organisers can be held responsible for your health and safety. If you are hurt whilst at the event, you could potentially claim compensation from them with help from an East Sussex law firm. However, in order to successfully make a claim with an East Sussex law firm, you will need to show that the incident wasn’t your fault. If you, along with your East Sussex law firm, can prove that someone or something else caused your injuries, it’s likely that you will be able to obtain compensation.
Of course, if you’re able to stay and enjoy the rest of the event despite your injuries, you won’t want to contact an East Sussex law firm straightaway. Fortunately, an East Sussex law firm should be able to help you with your claim, providing you contact them within a reasonable time.
