Lawyers for Sporting and Entertainment Event Accidents
Accidents at sporting or entertainment events, like a concert or a festival, can occur in all kinds of scenarios. If you suffer from an injury due to someone else’s negligence, there may be an opportunity for you to claim compensation.
Types of Event Accidents
There are many ways for someone to be negligent and cause an injury, may they be a venue owner, an event employee, or an event organizer. While injuries from things like a flying puck have been known to happen, you’re often more at risk from general area dangers. Some common types of accidents to occur at events are:
- Slip-and-fall accidents due to slippery floors
- Falling due to broken or non-existent railings
- Injury due to broken and poorly maintained chairs
- Spectator violence
- Injury due to poor planning or security
- Being struck by an object
Who is Responsible When You’re Hurt at an Event?
Many injuries are foreseeable, and it’s important that venues and event organizers act reasonably to ensure the safety of participants. Often risk is assumed when attending a public event, but legal liability can arise when reasonable steps are not taken to mitigate the potential for injury.
Without proper venue maintenance, event planning, or implementation of safety plans, an injury can occur at the hands of the venue or the event organizer. If you believed this happened, you should contact an injury lawyer to discuss the details of your case.
