The beauty of weddings
Weddings are lovely occasions where those who attend have the opportunity to watch two people come together in the name of love. Weddings can take place in some of the most beautiful of places and also some of the most quirky. There is no one standard wedding venue or even wedding day. Lots of happy people, good food and music is the best way to celebrate the newly wed couple.
Weddings gone wrong
While a wedding day is usually a wonderful day full of magical moments, there are situations that can occur where an individual may become injured through no fault of their own. If a wedding that you attend is in a bit of an obscure location such as by the waterfront, on a bridge or in an old castle style building, this means that there is a higher chance that you could end up involved in a wedding day disaster that you won’t forget any time soon.
Food poisoning at a wedding
Weddings tend to always feature an excellent spread. Buffets, three course meals or simply some tasty treats can usually be found at a wedding. Unfortunately, because the food tends to be mass produced for all of the guests, there is a possibility that something may not be quite right i.e. the food is undercooked, out of date or cross contaminated. Unfortunately, this can mean that you may end up with some form of food poisoning or sickness.
This type of illness can also be compensated for if you are able to prove the food poisoning was caused by the caterers. Other evidence will obviously help your claim, so if others experienced illness after eating, you should try and obtain witness statements and our solicitors in Markington will help you claim.
What to do in the event of an accident at a wedding
If you have been unfortunate enough to have been involved in an accident at a wedding through no fault of your own, you may want to look at the option of claiming compensation. This can be done by contacting Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 (landline) or 0333 500 0993 (mobile). When you get in touch with us, we will talk to you about your unfortunate experience and find suitable solicitors in Markington for you to claim through.
At the time of any kind of accident, it’s important that you try to gather any evidence that you feel may be useful in a claim for compensation. In order for you to be able to start a claim you must meet the following criteria:
- The accident must have happened within three years from the date you claim
- You must be able to prove that the accident was the fault of another individual or organisation and not yours
- We will need to see a record of your medical records from the injuries you have incurred.
Of course any extra evidence you can provide us with would be a bonus and probably increase the amount of compensation that we can help you win.
