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.

"Process was made simple"

My experience with Aequitas Legal was excellent overall. The process was made very simple and took up very little time on my part, particularly with use of the 'InCase' App and emails. My caseworker, Jane Hargreaves, was very approachable and friendly, and responded to queries promptly. I was expecting my case to take the best part of 6 months to resolve but was settled with my cheque in the post within just a few months. Very impressed at such a stress free and innovative experience and would recommend to others.

Aequitas Legal, a very professional company from Katie who helped with my initial inquiry to Suzanne, the solicitor, who handled my case. I was kept updated regularly on all aspects and developments and given sound advice regarding my claim. I particularly liked using the App on my mobile which was full of useful information. Great customer service with prompt responses to questions and queries, I would not hesitate to recommend them.
Thank you for a quick and easy settlement.
