Music Venue and Concert Accident Compensation

Concerts and music festivals are popular with people of all ages; however, audiences should be aware of potential hazards in packed and excited crowds. Although personal injury accidents are rare at music events, if you have suffered through somebody else’s fault, whether that’s by another audience member, the act or the venue management, you could be entitled to compensation.

At YouClaim, we understand that an injury at a gig or music festival can have a significant impact on your life, as well as tarnish memories that are supposed to be enjoyable. To find out if you can make concert accident claim, contact our expert solicitors today on 0800 10 757 95, or fill in our enquiry form located on this page to let us know you’d like to hear from us.

Types of injuries

The atmosphere at a music event or the consumption of alcohol may encourage people to behave more recklessly than they otherwise would. Common causes of injuries at a concert or festival include:

  • Slipping on spilled drinks
  • Tripping on exposed wires
  • Being injured by somebody else crowd surfing
  • Overcrowding
  • Loose or unsafe pyrotechnics
  • Faulty electronics or lighting
  • Assaults from members of the public

Whether you’re attending a gig, or working at the venue, if you’re injured and it was no fault of your own, then you should contact us to see if you are entitled to compensation.

The law surrounding music venues

Any venue used for public entertainment has to be licensed by a local authority, and its officers will make regular inspections to ensure precautions, such as sufficiently marking fire exits and removing hazardous obstructions, have been carried out.

Outdoor music concerts and festivals have separate health and safety hazards, and often organisers will issue a disclaimer to attendees suggesting they are responsible for their own care while on the site.

Make a claim for compensation

If you have suffered an injury while at a concert or music festival through no fault of your own, you may be able to make a compensation claim for your pain and suffering. YouClaim’s experienced injury solicitors can help you claim the damages you deserve and offer you the help and advice to ensure you are successful.
