Santa Barbara Concert Accident Attorneys
Concerts are exciting events that may be held in venues packed with hundreds or even thousands of fans. With so many people in one indoor location, it is no wonder that accidents and injuries sometimes occur. Some concert accidents are the result of negligence on the part of one party or another. If you have been hurt in a concert accident that was someone else’s fault, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
When large crowds of people gather, many of whom are drinking, someone could get hurt. Common causes of injury at concert venues include:
- Slip or trip and fall accidents caused by defects in the premises or slippery floor surfaces wet from spills
- Trampling, when the crowd rushes toward the stage or panics to exit
- Fights that break out, fueled by alcohol, drugs, or adrenaline
- Mosh pit injuries
- Projectiles thrown by unruly fans
- Pyrotechnic burn injuries
- Falls downstairs
- Escalator or elevator accidents
- Sexual assault
Concert attendees can be injured in many ways. Injuries commonly sustained in concert accidents include:
- Fractured bones
- Head injuries
- Neck injuries
- Back injuries
- Burn injuries
- Eye injuries
- Sprained, strain, or torn muscles, tendons, or ligaments
If you were hurt at a concert, it may be difficult to determine who is responsible. Our Santa Barbara personal injury attorneys can investigate accidents throughout California to determine fault and liability. Potentially liable parties may include:
- The owner of a venue if a defect in the premises caused your accident
- A promoter who leased the premises on a short-term basis
- A security company that failed to control a fight that caused your injuries
- A musical performer, in the case of pyrotechnic injuries from a light show
After a serious concert accident, it is important to get medical treatment as soon as possible. You may be entitled to claim compensation for your economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages include your losses that have a dollar value attached, such as past and future medical expenses, lost earnings, and loss of future earning potential. Non-economic damages, which have no set price tag, include pain and suffering, mental anxiety, emotional trauma, scarring or disfigurement, and diminished quality of life.
Concert accidents are often complicated cases with multiple potentially liable parties. If you have been injured at a concert venue, your best course of action is to speak with an experienced Santa Barbara personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. This will give you the best chance of recovering full and fair compensation for your injuries. Insurance companies are in business for profit and do not have your best interests at heart. We advise you not speak with insurance company representatives or accept any settlement offer without first consulting with a lawyer.
