Have you been hurt at a fair?
Although many amusements and rides now reside at permanent theme parks around the United Kingdom, some touring fairs still visit towns, cities and villages around the country. Whilst fairs don’t provide permanent attractions, they are still extremely popular and many people visit the fair when it passes through their local areas.
Even though these fairs don’t have a permanent home or premises, this doesn’t mean that they are exempt from the health and safety laws that cover amusements and theme parks. As many of the fairground rides involve people travelling at high speeds or carrying them into the air, it’s essential that they are safe and fit for purpose.
In addition to this, fairground workers are required to ensure that the people using the rides are old enough to do so. Whilst age isn’t always a factor, in some instances there are height and weight requirements. For example, to stop yourself sliding out of some of the rides, you may have to be a certain height or weight before you will be allowed to go on.
If fairground workers fail to follow these guidelines or they cause someone to suffer an injury they could be held responsible and the person who has been hurt may be able to claim compensation from them. As fairs don’t reside in just one place, you may assume that making a claim against them will be difficult. However, injury solicitors in Wednesbury and our own personal injury lawyers are familiar with a variety of claims so it shouldn’t be a problem for them to assist you in making a claim against fairground owners.
