Can I sue if my son (or daughter) was Injured at a Nassau Coliseum Concert?

A recent rave concert at Nassau Coliseum where 100 teens required medical treatment has caused many to ask if they can sue for any injuries. Concert injuries have become common at many venues, and the Coliseum is no exception. Injuries are often related to drinking and drugs, fights and crowding.

Some questions to ask to determine if you have a lawsuit:

  • Did a lack of security contribute to the injury?
  • Was there proper crowd control?
  • Was there adequate lighting in aisles, lobbies and parking areas?
  • Was alcohol purchased by underage concertgoers?
  • Did the band incite the crowd?


A concert venue needs to provide reasonable safety measures. This includes security, crowd control, adequate lighting, proper maintenance of seats and structures, regard to weather conditions if the concert is outdoors and proper ID checks for serving alcohol.
