In fact, MG Legal, personal injury Solicitors in Lancaster, are sad to note that the statistics of people being injured on fairground rides is actually on the rise! Only recently there was an incident at Brighton Pier where part of a ride came loose and fell off injuring a teenager in the process! 
It is thought that generally speaking the attractions with fixed rides should be safer and maintained on a regular basis with sufficient insurance in place, but what happens if you sustain a personal injury whilst at a traveling fairground? For starters travelling fairgrounds have a lot more risk associated with them due to the fact that they are dismantled and erected again so frequently. The ground conditions at different venues can affect how well the attraction sits on the ground, things can be missed or forgotten when assembling the ride and most worryingly travelling fairground companies have been known not to have public liability insurance in place if something does go wrong! 
 
Whilst most fairground accidents happen to members of the public, you may also have sustained an injury whilst working at a fairground. No matter what has happen, if the accident was not your fault, you should launch a personal injury claim to compensate for your suffering. 
 
There are so many different types of accidents that can occur at a fairground and not all accidents happen due to issues with rides. Maybe your injury was as a result of a slip, trip or fall variety. Maybe you fell due to a pothole that wasn’t cordoned off, or slipped on a wet floor? No matter what happened if you were not to blame for the slip, trip or fall then you are likely to be entitled to compensation
 
If you want to claim for a personal injury that happened at a fair ground or theme park, email MG Legal your local Solicitors now via enquiries@mglegal.co.uk or call 01995 602 129.  
 
In the meantime, everyone here at MG Legal wish the little boy who was injured at Lightwater Valley a speedy recovery!
