Long Island, Manhattan and Brooklyn host great concerts for almost every musical taste—Rush, The Warp Tour, Jonas Brothers, Blake Shelton, Aerosmith, Billy Joel, ,Bruno Mars, Smashing Pumpkins, Skinny Puppy, One Republic, Van Halen and Lil Wayne.
When you attend a concert, the organizers, promoters and venues have a responsibility to provide you with a safe and secure environment. This includes following building codes and properly maintaining all structures and facilities, providing adequate security and crowd control, accessible exits and adequate lighting. When organizers fail to do this, concert goers can get seriously hurt or even killed.
If you or a family member were involved in a Long Island concert accident, you may be entitled to compensation.
Some questions to ask, was your concert accident due to:
- Inadequate security?
- Improper lighting?
- Poorly maintained flooring or guard rails?
- Lack of crowd control?
- Faulty or improperly constructed ramps?
- Lack of guardrails or improperly maintained railings?
- A drunk concert goer who was served too much alcohol at the venue?
There may be several parties that share liability for your accident—such as the owner of the venue, the promoter, the performers and the security company.
If you think you have a case from being injured at a concert, it is important to document the incident.
Save your ticket stub, take photos of the scene with your cellphone and of your injuries and see if you can get contact information from any witnesses. Make sure to get any necessary medical attention you need and get copies of all medical reports. Make sure the doctors know your injuries were due to an accident so they can include this in their report. Finally, if you wish to pursue legal action, find an experienced and competent accident lawyer.
