Live music of any form is always an enjoyable venture. Whether you go for classical, jazz, classic rock, or more modern music, there's nothing like listening to your favorite band, orchestra, or musician in person. Most concerts don't make the news. But when they do, there are usually injuries involved. The first venue accident occurred at a Cincinnati arena in 1979 at a concert by The Who. Eleven people were trampled and died by asphyxiation while trying to get into the venue with hundreds of others. Contact our premises liability lawyers today if you need a concert injury lawyer.
At Queen Yasmine Law, we don't charge anything unless we win you a settlement in or out of court. This type of fee structure is called a contingency fee. This ensures we work hard for the most compensation possible and that you don't have more out-of-pocket expenses.
The latest venue accident happened in November of 2021 during the Travis Scott concert in Houston, Texas. Ten people, aged 9 through 27, died from compression asphyxiation after crowds surged the stage during the concert. More than 300 people were also injured. Police and event security quickly lost control of the situation. People were trapped in barricades and had no way to escape. The music continued for more than 30 minutes until police and security finally stopped it to help the injured.
Accidents like these can happen during any concert and for any reason.
Owners and occupants have a duty of care to maintain their property reasonably safe. They must also warn guests and visitors of any potential dangers, even if they are open and obvious. If someone is injured on the property due to the owner's negligence, it could be a premises liability case.
The duty of care requires people who own, control, or possess property to exercise this duty of care to:
A property owner or occupier who fails to keep their property reasonably safe can be held liable for injuries sustained on the property because of their negligence. Someone injured on the property may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit against the property owner for damages they suffered from the negligent and hazardous conditions.
These are just some of the ways accidents can occur where you’d planned on an enjoyable excursion.
No one should suffer injuries at a performance, but it does happen. The venue can be held accountable under premises liability if they failed to keep the property safe and it led to your injuries. Depending on the circumstances, other parties may be liable. For instance, the promoter or the local onsite venue security may have been negligent.
The musical act can also be held liable if they were responsible for the accident. Travis Scott has a history of encouraging fans to bypass security and rush the stage and was charged twice in prior incidents. Live Nation Entertainment, Scott’s promoter, also has a history of safety violations, including understaffed security teams. If reckless or dangerous behavior by another attendee is responsible, they can also be held liable and accountable for your injuries. Adding alcohol and/or drugs to an already volatile situation increases the potential for severe injuries. Both situations can lead to a personal injury lawsuit.
There are many injuries that can happen when a performance gets out of control. Just some of them are:
