Touring funfairs are a great day out and good fun for all the family. Having something fun to do that you don’t see on a daily basis can be a welcome breath of fresh air and help to alleviate some of the stress you feel from work.
The distractions of all the lights and loud music is inviting and exciting but it can also distract you form the hazards that come with it. Being on your guard is important as there are some serious accidents which can happen which will in turn need the attention of personal injury solicitors.
Potential hazards in travelling funfairs
As you look at all the lights and rides around you have you ever stopped to think about the amount of electricity it takes to power it all? Even on the dodgems you can smell the static electricity as the cars roll over the surface. The fact is that electricity is a major hazard at any funfair whether it is touring or stationary.
All the power has to come from somewhere which is why there are always plenty of cables trailing over the floor. Before contemplating the electricity the cables already represent a trip hazard. Even with a rubber mat you can still trip over it. Travelling around the country and fast setups may mean that safety standards may slip in places so if there are any faults in the cables anyone could receive a substantial electric shock.

In compensation claims against funfairs solicitors usually put the case to the owner of the funfair. Even though it may be the fault of a crew member it is still the owner’s responsibility to maintain the safety standards of the funfair.
Once communication is established with the owner, or relative responsible party, solicitors will be able to present your compensation claim along with any evidence which has been collected and proceed with the claim.
If you have been in an accident at a funfair you could be entitled to some compensation money. Depending on circumstances and factors including the severity of the injuries sustained the amount of money received will vary but this can be discussed with your solicitor.
