What to Do if You Are Injured at a Concert Venue in Delaware
Summer is all about having fun and making memories. After slicing through the muggy heat this June and July, the chances are high that you have spent some time attending at least one or two fairs or concerts to kick off your nightlife excursions. Whether you want to listen to your favorite rock band or catch up on some old favorites, you will be more than eager to hit the bandstands, but the fact of the matter is that even outdoor venues can be dangerous. In the blink of an eye, people can sustain moderate or severe injuries after slipping on power cables or sticky stairs. Nevertheless, one question remains: can you sue concert venues for an injury if they were not necessarily at fault?
THE RESPONSIBILITY OF VISITORS AND ADMINISTRATORS
In the same case as people who operate and tend to apartment buildings, the people who supervise entertainment venues like outdoor auditoriums or stadiums are 100% responsible for ensuring that the hundreds of thousands of men, women, and children who visit their halls are kept safe and sound. Routine inspections and daily cleanup are usually enough to ensure customers’ wellbeing.
Regardless, visitors can still suffer potentially traumatic injuries due to a loose wire or a poorly-secured stair or seat. In many cases, equipment malfunctions and sticky floors can also contribute to dangerous accidents. For example:
- Some visitors may suffer burns due to electrocution as the result of a worn-out wire
- In the case of loose railings, victims can suffer traumatic brain injuries or spinal cord injuries after taking a nasty fall
- In some cases, a person may slip on loose garbage, take a severe tumble, and fracture some bones
CAN PEOPLE SUE THE CONCERT VENUE FOR INJURIES?
Although concert venues must make your safety a top priority, the men and women who operate the facilities are usually not at fault for injuries you might sustain. Consider the fact that hundreds of thousands (sometimes millions) of people will buy tickets for performances all times of the year, and many of these events can turn into a literal stampede.
If, however, you watch a person purposefully fail to pick up trash or ignore a loose step during a routine inspection, you will potentially have the grounds to sue.
