Nobody expects to be injured when they buy a ticket to see their favorite musicians play a show, but it’s not uncommon for a few concertgoers to suffer injuries at a show. For larger shows, many venues actually have medical rooms or tents set up because they anticipate that injuries will occur. So what should you do if you’ve been injured at a concert, and how can you go about receiving compensation for your injuries? We discuss how to get compensation for concert-related injuries in Minnesota in today’s blog.
Concert Injuries And Your Right To Compensation
Whether you’re listening to a solo guitarist in a coffee shop or in the middle of a mosh pit at a rave, you may be surprised to learn of all the ways you can be injured at the performance. Some common types of injuries we’ve heard of or helped pursue compensation for include:
- Slip and fall injuries from poorly maintained venues
- Fights involving concertgoers
- Injuries from venue equipment or pyrotechnics
- Injured by an inebriated attendee
- Injuries from overcrowding
These are just some of the ways you can be injured at a concert, and oftentimes, an argument can be made that the venue failed to uphold the standard of safety required to prevent these injuries. For example, maybe your slip and fall accident occurred because of loose flooring or from spilled liquid that was left unattended. Or maybe you were injured by an unruly or overserved attendee. It’s possible that the venue is partially liable for you injuries because they did not staff adequate security for the event, or they knowingly overserved a clearly intoxicated individual. There are many ways to connect your injury to a failure to provide the necessary duty of care the venue owes to its attendees.
