Claiming for a festival injury

Attending a festival can be an experience of a lifetime for many individuals who gather to see artists from around the globe.

But accidents aren’t always your fault. One of the biggest questions asked by claimants is: “who is liable for the accident?” Particularly if the accident occurred whilst under the influence of alcohol or other substances.

In fact, regardless of the circumstances, it is the festival and event organisers responsibility to ensure everyone is kept safe. Therefore, if you are injured at the festival you could make a claim.

Possible accidents at festivals

Accidents at festivals can occur in many ways, they can be at a specific venue inside a club or bar or in the open air at a festival in the countryside. Some possible injuries can be from:

  • Crushing in a crowd or being crushed by falling debris i.e staging
  • Fracture or break from a fall possibly due to a slippery floor or mud
  • Tripping over any of the festivals equipment or staging
  • Dehydration resulting in fainting or being hospitalised
  • Possible death

What do when you’ve been injured

When deciding whether or not you should make a claim it is important to consider the following:

  • The date of your accident: You can claim for an accident that occurred up to 3 years later.
  • Proof of attendance: Booking confirmation, tickets or images of yourself at the event.
  • Evidence of accidents or injury: Hospital or doctors notes and/or images of the injury from the location of the accident.

"A star in the making"

I’d just like to give a very positive feedback to Ansa Rashid took on my case & finally got things moving. Before that I had Susan Mason who never answered my calls or emails & the case was ongoing still 3 years on. Ansa took over, got things moving & even through her busy day rang me mostly every week, sometimes on the phone an hour or so. I can not fault this woman she is amazing at her job. Very professional, caring, trustworthy & motivational. Plenty of times I wanted to to throw the towel in but she just wouldn’t let me give up. The case took 4 years in the end & even though we didn’t win I’d still recommend her to everyone. Thank you Ansa you are a star In the making

" ‘in-Case’ app makes things so simple"

I was involved in an accident which was not my fault, and was recommended to use Aequitas Legal. From the start, the whole journey with the team was both efficient, professional and sophisticated, with everyone essentially making the process so easy. Their ‘in-Case’ App made simple things like documents and letters so accessible, and meant I could access any import documents at anytime in seconds. I first spoke to Sucheet, who was the gentleman in charge of the company, who explained how everything would work, and pointed me in the direction of Connor, who would be my main liaison during the case. Together, they both ensured I was given the best advice, and seamlessly helped me through the case, which was concluded with a positive outcome! I could not recommend this company more, and will always be my go-to firm.

"Amazing determination"

I was amazed on how determined the team were in seeing my case through. If you are looking for a reliable, easy and transparent team to handle your case, here they are. I would like to thank Somia who I believe either led or coordinated my case for doing a fantastic job in both seeing the case through and communication.

"Professional, friendly and happy to explain everything simply"

Highly recommend Aequitas who have recently dealt with my successful case. Special thanks to James Sloane who made the process much easier ; very professional, friendly and happy to explain everything simply. Also very encouraging and supportive with regular updates as well as spot on with getting paperwork and documents organised.
For someone like myself who has never been involved in a legal process I'm delighted with how my case was handled with this company.
