It is the lesser known event organizers, festival promoters, and third party companies that must take the reasonable steps to ensure each concertgoers safety. The requirement to take reasonable steps for safety is called a legal duty. A duty of care arises anytime your actions may hurt someone else.

NEGLIGENT SECURITY INJURY CASES

 

In several insufficient security cases, the complainant is in some way injured by the criminal act, and consequently brings a legal action against the property owner. The owners were persons that were considered responsible and they were in control of the premises where the complainant was hurt. The litigant holds these property owners responsible for having averted a criminal act from happening.

There are several inadequate security cases including:

  • Insufficient security

  • Insufficient lighting

  • Insufficient security apparatuses

  • Inadequate control over keys and locks

  • Lack of skilled security personnel

  • Deprived lightening in parking lots and garages

  • Absence of security cameras

  • Spiked surveillance cameras

  • Blocked emergency exits

  • Insecure windows


When these aspects are not adhered to by property owners, it may be viewed in the judicial system as a breach of security. For instance, this could be a robbery in a business complex that could have been averted through the use of the emergency exit doors but they do not function as a result of a blockage. Due to such negligence, security issues can have great impacts like severe injury because of the stampede and wrongful death claims.

Our firm works on a contingency fee basis. This means that you will pay us nothing unless we win your case.

WHAT IS DUTY OF CARE AT A MUSIC FESTIVAL?

As a festival attendee, you expect there to be a certain level of precaution to keep you and the rest of the concertgoers safe. The festival organizers’ job is to keep safety measures in place and sufficient security staff to respond to emergencies. This is where duty of care comes into play; it is a legal duty for promoters and organizers to ensure the safety of their patrons.

 

For festival organizers to avoid premises liability they must assess risks, inform emergency services, address legal and management issues as well as meet all legal obligations before hosting any type of event. 

Music festivals are all fun and games until someone suffers a serious injury. These laws are put into place to help promoters maintain ‘duty of care’ while minimizing any potential risk associated with their music festival.

 

COMMON INJURIES AT A MUSIC FESTIVAL

Rowdy crowds, small spaces, and mosh pits are a recipe for disaster. Between dodging fellow music fans and battling sunburn, the last thing anyone wants is to suffer from broken bones or any other type of serious injury. 

There is nothing worse than getting stuck in the middle of a mosh pit with no exit in sight. Crowd surfing sounds like fun until no one catches you and suddenly you’re getting trampled under a number of people. One minute you’re having the time of your life, and in a blink of an eye, you suffered a serious injury to your back, neck and head.

Here are some other personal injuries that can occur at music festivals:

  • Falling of equipment on people that’s not properly placed/secured.

  • Back, head or neck injuries caused by moshing or crowd surfing

  • Being hit by glass bottles thrown by others

  • Trips/falls that occur on walkways that haven’t been properly secured

  • Deafness or other hearing problems

IS THE CONCERT VENUE LIABLE?

A festival organizer’s premises of liability is solely centered around the individual circumstances of a person’s injury. With tens of thousands of music fans joining together in crowded environments and abusing alcohol, adrenaline tends to heighten, and unfortunately, concert venues sometimes tend to favor unsavory accidents. 

If serious injuries were obtained by a third party, the festival organizers could still be liable for your injuries. Before making a personal injury claim, take a look take a look at how a festival organizer could be liable:

  • Festival employees over-serve customers

  • Lack of proper security/understaffed

  • Insufficient barricades or blockages that cause the flow of people to stampede
