Although you can pretty much illegally download most new films almost as soon as they’ve hit cinema screens, you can’t beat going to see a movie at a cinema. You might have to shell out the best part of a tenner on a ticket and a similar amount on refreshments, such as ridiculously over-priced popcorn, but sitting at home, hunched over your lap-top, just isn’t the same.
But while going and seeing a film at the cinema will be an altogether different experience to sitting at home and watching one on your internet-connected device, it could be a potentially more hazardous affair. In fact, there might even be a chance that you could end up suffering an injury in an accident that was not your fault while attending such a place. If you were, you might find it useful to know that there could be a chance that you might be able to take some form of North Devon claims personal injury action against the firm that owns the film house you were patronising.
Cinemas and North Devon claims
While it might not seem to be the case to the untrained eye, cinemas are littered with potential dangers that could end up doing you an injury in an accident that was not your fault and ultimately put you in a position where taking some form of North Devon claims action might be a very real possibility.
You could trip on a piece of upturned carpet or damaged flooring, for instance. If you were to fall awkwardly in such circumstances, the consequences could be very severe indeed. There would also be a possibility that you might contract some form of food poisoning from some refreshments you purchased while at a cinema. One of those hot dogs that had been lying around on a counter before being served to you could well harbour something nasty. It might even be the case that your popcorn was in some way contaminated with unpleasant bacteria.
In either of these circumstances, it might be the case that you could well find yourself in a position where taking some form of North Devon claims action might be a very real possibility. The amount of compensation that you could stand to win would be very much dependent on the severity of your injuries and the precise circumstances that surrounded your accident. However, you can get a rough idea of the amount that a competent personal injury lawyer might be able to win on your behalf by using the 30-second claims calculator on the right hand side of this web page.
