Have you suffered a Knowsley accident whilst at an outdoor event?
As the weather gets hotter throughout the United Kingdom, more and more councils are allowing outdoor events to take place. Whilst some companies don’t need to get approval for outdoor events, if the event is to take place in a public area or is likely to attract a significant number of people, the council may need to give authorisation in order for the event to go ahead.
Although there are many music events which take place outdoors in the summer, there are a whole range of events available to people of all interests. Many amateur sporting events take place during this season, in addition to fetes, fares and local markets so there is plenty to do for people of all ages.
Of course, when an outdoor event takes place, it’s important that the event organisers give due care and attention to health and safety. Despite being outdoors, they may have to limit the event to a certain number of participants or attendees. Similarly, if the event features fairground rides or sporting activities, they may need to limit the entrants based on age or height.
Although the health and safety aspect of an event can be difficult to organise, it’s essential that it is done properly in order to try and minimise the chance of a Knowsley accident occurring. If you do happen to suffer a Knowsley accident whilst you’re at an outdoor event, there is a chance that you will be able to claim compensation, providing the incident wasn’t your fault.
As most outdoor events do have medical personnel on site to help, it’s possible that you will be able to access treatment straightaway. However, if you attend a large outdoor event and there are no medical professionals on site, this could be added to your compensation claim if you choose to make one at a later date.
Before you commit to making a claim for compensation, you may want to find out more about the claims process and what’s involved.
