Are you thinking about event claims in Tunbridge Wells after suffering an injury at an exhibition?
With the United Kingdom having hosted major international events such as the Olympics and the Commonwealth Games in recent years, it seems that there are well-known events taking place on home soil all the time. In addition to these well-known sporting events, the UK regularly hosts a number of musical and business-related events all over the country.
Although a significant number of these are publicised internationally, some events are more locally focussed and appeal to specific industries or regions. With the warmer summer weather meaning that many events can now be hosted outdoors, there are activities and event taking place on a weekly basis throughout the country.
In order for these events to take place, they must be very carefully organised. Even smaller events must ensure that they can fulfil the health and safety requirements before they are given permission to take place. This means that if anyone is hurt at the event, they will be able to obtain medical help quickly, which could be essential to saving a life or minimising injuries.
Of course, with thousands of people attending these events, it’s likely that some injuries will occur. In some cases, there is little event managers can do to stop people becoming unwell or being injured, particularly if it’s very hot. At some of the open air music festivals, for example, a blisteringly hot weekend can mean that people quickly become dehydrated or suffer from heat and sunstroke. Fortunately, most event organisers are well prepared for this, and are quick to supply free water and supplies to those who need it.
If you do find that you’re hurt whilst at one of these events, you’ll want to obtain help as quickly as possible. As well as calling the emergency services as normal, you may benefit from finding one of the health and safety officers at the event.
If it becomes apparent that you weren’t responsible for the incident which caused your injuries, you may want to make event claims in Tunbridge Wells afterwards. Of course, you don’t have to decide whether or not to make event claims in Tunbridge Wells straight away, but you should be aware that time limits can be enforced in some situations. As long as you make your claim within three years of the incident occurring, it’s likely that you will still be able to obtain compensation, but you may want to contact a personal injury law firm to find out how long you’ve got left to make your claim.
