In some cases, they can also share alcohol use, raucous attendees, and even injurious circumstances that are spurred by overcrowding or violence, and the lack of security to help control the size and actions of the crowd.
If you have been injured at a concert venue, you need to know what to do next to ensure your well-being is the priority, and your legal rights are preserved to pursue the property owner, operator, or event organizer for your complete financial recovery.
Here is what you need to know.
What are the Most Common Causes of Injuries at Concert Venues?
Most property owners, operators, and event organizers regulate the size of the crowds, meet fire and safety regulations, and employ medical and security staff to help manage any incidents that occur during the performances.
However, concert venues have also been the stage for tragic events that lead to significant injuries and fatalities that result from:
- Blocked exits.
- Criminal activity on or around the premises, including sexual assaults and robberies.
- Equipment malfunctions or failures that cause injuries, including falling speakers or cameras.
- Fire code/capacity violations that lead to crushing injuries or deaths.
- Lack of security screenings that allow dangerous weapons onto the premises.
- Poorly trained security personnel or a lack of physical security presence for the crowd size.
- Slip, trip, and fall accidents caused by dimly lit areas, torn rugs, or spilled food and beverages.
- Violent attacks between patrons.
If you have been hurt at a concert in Florida, Mississippi, or Louisiana, there are several steps you can take to ensure your injuries are identified and documented, so you can pursue the financial compensation you need to get your life back on track.
What Steps Should I Take After Being Injured at a Concert Venue?
The first thing you should do after suffering an injury is pursue immediate medical care at the treatment facility on the venue’s premises. Be sure to document the venue’s response to your injuries, who treated you, and their initial diagnosis.
Next, if you do not require immediate transport from the facility by ambulance, seek medical care at the nearest emergency room or another professional medical facility. This will ensure a physician identifies all your injuries, puts a treatment plan in place, and provides ongoing care instructions.
