When you go to see a concert, whether it be a band, a musical artist or a theatrical performance, you’re probably not thinking about getting injured. Yet, injuries and accidents do occur at concert events more often than you think.
Once you buy a concert ticket, there’s the usually some fine print on the back which most people never read. In essence the fine print acts as a waiver in which you somehow agree to accept all the possible dangers associated with seeing a concert. While the fine print disclaimer waiver or whatever you call it, attempts to protect the concert venue, the promoter, and others, there are some circumstances which aren’t protected under the waiver. If you become involved in an accident or sustain injuries at a concert you may be able to request compensation from the concert promoter, venue, or even the artist for your injuries.
Personal injuries at concerts that may have been foreseen by the concert attendee aren’t likely to be meritorious should a lawsuit be filed. So if you’re injured because you were crowd diving or jumped into the mosh pit, or even breaking bottles on your head, it’s a tough argument that someone else is responsible for your concert injury. On the other hand, concert injuries caused by others which do not have your direct involvement or participation can include:
- slip and falls on wet floors
- falling debris
- inadequate security
- malfunctioning fixtures and seating
- physical assaults
- thrown objects
- falls from heightened floors/balconies
- improperly installed fixtures and seating
