Phoenix Concert Accident Lawyers
There is nothing like the experience of a live concert, where you can listen to your favorite artists and feel the energy of the audience around you. Concert venues may be packed with people, and accidents can happen. If you were hurt at a concert, your first priority is to get medical treatment for your injuries. The next thing to do is to find out about your legal options for compensation.
Incidents can occur when large crowds of people come together in concert venues. Common accidents and injuries at concerts include:
- Slip or trip and fall accidents: Falls are not uncommon in a packed venue with dark lighting and intoxicated people all around.
- Trampling: When concert-goers panic in an emergency or push forward in their excitement when the main attraction appears on the stage, a fan can get knocked down and trampled by the crowd.
- Projectiles: Unruly fans may throw objects that could hit another person and cause injuries.
- Mosh pits: At concerts with aggressive, live music, mosh pits can form, usually in the center of the crowd, closer to the stage. Moshing is a violent form of dancing that involves slamming into other people and can easily cause injuries.
- Fights among fans: Disagreements among people in a crowded concert environment can become violent when fueled with a combination of adrenaline and alcohol, or drugs.
- Pyrotechnic injuries: Musical groups may use pyrotechnics to enhance live performances. By definition, this involves the use of fire. While they may be impressive to watch, pyrotechnics can lead to injuries at a concert.
Liability for concert injuries will depend on the type of injury and how it occurred.
- The owner of the venue may be held responsible in a premises liability claim, if the injury was caused by a hazardous condition existing on the property that the owner should have known about and failed to remedy or rope off and warn visitors about.
- Performing artists or contractors may be liable for injuries caused by pyrotechnics.
- A concert promoter who failed to provide adequate security may be held liable for resulting injuries if a concert-goer assaults another.
- When alcohol is served at a concert venue, the vendor may be liable under Arizona dram shop laws for injuries and damages caused by an intoxicated person, if the vendor sold alcohol to that person when he or she was clearly intoxicated.
