Street parties are increasingly popular and usually run smoothly but, unfortunately, poor organisation, negligence and large crowds can lead to accidents and injuries.
If a street party is given the go ahead by a local authority, the organisers have to be able to guarantee the safety of all of the attendants. This means having stewards present who can direct revellers and ensure people have fun while staying safe. It also means having first aiders on hand (potentially the stewards themselves) who can deliver medical attention to anyone injured or ill – whether this is a simple trip or fall, food poisoning or something more severe.
Lastly, the organisers should arrange security so that any troublemakers can be dealt with swiftly before they spoil the party or harm other partygoers.
If the organisers or the local authority have not enforced these things, they could be liable if you are injured during the event and you could be able to make a claim for compensation. The team at First Personal Injury are able to guide you through this process and handle your claim on a no win no fee basis.
Injuries occurring at street parties can be very serious. This is because appropriate medical treatment can’t always be administered quickly or easily due to surrounding crowds making it hard to access the individual. This means even more minor incidents can turn serious. Common injuries at street parties can include:
The injuries incurred can have serious implications for you, including lost earnings, a prolonged recovery time, the need for rehabilitation and even permanent adjustments to your home and lifestyle. Compensation can’t change all this, but it can help by covering lost earnings, pay for medical care and any changes to your life, hopefully compensation can also bring some comfort and closure to the incident.
