I wish to make a concert hall injury claim although I do not know the process, how can I make a claim for compensation?
A concert hall injury claim can be made by those who have suffered an injury on account of the negligence of a third party. This applies while you visit the concert hall, as while on the premises you should not expect to sustain an injury in a concert hall. The staff at the venue must perform a duty of care and if it is determined that they have been negligent in this duty – and you were injured as a consequence – you could be entitled to seek compensation for a concert hall injury. To determine your eligibility to claim for an accident in a concert hall, you are advised to consult a personal injury solicitor at the earliest opportunity.
Before you pursue a concert hall injury claim, you are advised to first seek immediate medical attention for your injuries. This is primarily to ensure that your injury in a concert hall does not deteriorate to something far more serious and that you receive prompt treatment which limits the severity of your condition. However this also serves to ensure that your compensation for a concert hall injury is not damaged by allegations of contributory negligence, as if you neglect to seek immediate medical attention you may be considered to have contributed to the extent of your injury. Claiming for an accident in a concert hall is still possible in this scenario – however the amount of compensation to which you may be entitled can be reduced in order to reflect your own negligence.
Your concert hall injury claim can proceed by submitting an application for an assessment of your injury to the Injuries Board. This is done by filling in Injuries Board Form A either online or through the post (although it can only be done through post for a child) and including Form B with your application, detailing your doctor’s examination of your injury in a concert hall. Upon receiving the application, the Injuries Board will then contact the negligent party as mentioned on the form, seeking their permission to continue with an assessment of your accident in a concert hall. If this consent is provided, the assessment will continue and eventually provide a figure of compensation for a concert hall injury to which you should be entitled, which is to be accepted or rejected by you and the negligent party.
If accepted, your claim for an injury in a concert hall will soon be resolved and your compensation paid to you. However if you or the negligent party reject the assessment – or if consent is not provided to the Injuries Board in the first place – an authorisation will be provided to pursue your claim in court and the Injuries Board will no longer be involved in your claim for compensation for a concert hall injury. However it is likely that both you and the negligent party will wish to resolve your claim out of court and a settlement for your accident in a concert hall is still possible prior to appearing before a judge. Making a concert hall injury claim can be a complex procedure, and for this reason you are advised to consult a personal injury solicitor at the earliest opportunity.
