About music venue and concert accidents

Concerts and gigs are popular with people of all ages. However, attendees should be aware of potential hazards in music venues, which can often be packed with excited music lovers. Although accidents are relatively rare at music events, if you have suffered as a result of the negligence of somebody else during your attendance at a gig or concert, then it is likely you will be entitled to make a claim for compensation.  

Causes of injuries

There are many potential situations at a concert or gig that may lead to an injury, from slipping and tripping hazards to mismanaged stage rigging and equipment. We have listed some common causes of injuries at a concert or gig below:

  • Slipping on spilled drinks
  • Tripping on exposed wires
  • 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 as it is highly likely you will be entitled to compensation.

Who is responsible for injuries caused at a music venue?

Although each case is different, in most instances, it is likely that the venue itself will be the party accountable for your injury. 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 marked fire exits and removing hazardous obstructions, have been carried out.  If a venue is found to be in breach of the requirements for it to act as a public entertainment venue and an injury occurs as a result, then the responsibility for your injury will lie with the venue. 

However, there is a number of scenarios in which injury at a music event may occur and ultimately, your lawyer will guide your claim and determine the appropriate party against which your claim will be made.

At YouClaim, we understand that an injury at a gig or music festival can physically impact your life in any number of ways, as well as tarnish memories that are supposed to be enjoyable. That’s why we’ll do everything we can to ensure you receive the compensation that you deserve.
