Although most families used to host family events and celebrations in their own homes, many know opt to hire out special venues. Wedding receptions, christening celebrations and birthday parties are now often held in local venues, rather than at home.
In addition to making the event more special, the use of a venue can mean that the hosts are able to invite more people and they can access help with catering and decorations. Whilst hiring a special venue may prove more costly, many people are willing to pay the extra cost to make their day more special.
Whether it’s a birthday, a wedding, a Bar Mitzvah or an anniversary, everyone want their event to be free from problems and especially free from injuries. Unfortunately, it isn’t always possible to predict when someone will get hurt or when an Epsom and Ewell accident will occur.
If you attend a celebration or a family event and you’re hurt because of an Epsom and Ewell accident, there may be action you can take against those responsible. If the venue itself was dangerous and caused the Epsom and Ewell accident, the venue owners or event organisers may be liable for any harm that you’ve suffered.
If, for example, you hired a marquee and this subsequently collapsed causing injury to your guests, they may be able to claim compensation from the company responsible. As such an incident could ruin your event, you may also want to take action against them to try and recoup the money you spent on hosting the event.
If you’re hurt whilst attending an event you could suffer a wide range of injuries. Although relatively minor injuries may simply require medical treatment and rest, a more serious Epsom and Ewell accident could mean that you spend weeks, or even months, receiving treatment.
If you’ve suffered a serious Epsom and Ewell accident and you’re concerned about the impact that this could have on your finances, we may be able to help. When you make a claim for compensation, you could also try and claim back any income that you’ve lost as a result of the Epsom and Ewell accident.
