Concerts are a great way for large groups of people from all walks to life to come together and enjoy their favorite artists and songs. These shared experiences can be deeply moving and may leave attendees with fond memories for the rest of their lives but all it takes is for one small thing to go wrong and a good memory can become a bad one.
Thousands of people are hurt each year while attending concerts and in the majority of cases, those who are injured have the right to pursue legal action against those whose negligence or purposeful act resulted in their injury.
Why Should I File A Concert Injury Lawsuit?
You’ve been hurt at a concert and now you require expensive medical treatments and ongoing care. As if dealing with physical pain and bills isn’t bad enough, your injury has also prevented you from returning to work, adding additional financial strain on the situation.

The Most Common Causes Of Injuries At Concerts
There are many ways through which concert attendees can become seriously injured, however, the most common ways include:
Crowded space, yelling, alcohol, and sometimes drugs can all create an environment where concert attendees feel agitated. All it takes is a spark to set off the temper of one person and a literal brawl could break out. In the heat of the moment, those involved often use weapons other than their fists, such as nearby objects, knives, and sometimes even guns.
As we as a nation have come to realize, not all attacks are spontaneous and due to advances made in weaponry, shooters can easily plan to harm those inside of an event without ever setting foot on the venue’s property. In a matter of seconds, dozens of people could be killed or wounded.
To top it all off, sexual predators often attend concerts looking for their next victim, hoping to use the loud noise, dark environment, and possible intoxication of their victim to get away with their crime.
Whether a stage is a permanent structure or a temporary one, the designers, manufacturers, and crew responsible for it’s construction have the responsibility to ensure the structure is safe and well maintained. Yet stages collapse with surprising frequency, hurting the entertainers, staff, and concert-goers alike.
In order to put on an amazing show, every venue has equipment for lighting, sound systems, and props. Sometimes this equipment has a defect which causes it to malfunction, hurting anyone in the vicinity.
Slip & Fall Accidents
It’s normal to anticipate that spilled drinks and cups might be found on the floor of a venue, however, venue owners and managers are still responsible for other slip and fall hazards like:
- Broken Steps
- Broken Handrails
- Cracked Sidewalks
- Loose Flooring
- Loose Wires
If a visitor falls and becomes injured by a hazard which should have been identified and corrected prior to the concert, legal action can be taken to recover compensation.
Crowd Control Failure
A crowd of people, much like a herd of cattle, can become panicked or angry, losing total control and moving forward in a powerful wave. Those unfortunate enough to be caught in this wave can literally be crushed to death. Venues have a responsibility to provide security to ensure that crowds remain under control and visitors remain safe.
How Much Can I Get Through A Concert Injury Lawsuit?
Civil lawsuits were created so that the plaintiffs are given the opportunity to recover their losses. Recoverable losses include:
- Medical Expenses
- Lost Earnings
- Physical Trauma
- Emotional Distress
In cases where the victim died because of their injuries, their loved ones may be able to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit which can also cover:
- Funeral & Burial Expenses
- Lost Inheritance
- Lost Companionship
An experienced attorney can review your case and provide you and your loved ones with an estimate of how much you may be able to recover by taking legal action.
