Answering the question who is at fault if you are hurt at a music festival can be complicated. Circumstances can vary significantly and there are many different factors to be taken into consideration.
Factors to consider when getting hurt at a music festival
Deciding who was at fault when you were hurt at a music festival includes considering whether:
- You were under the influence of alcohol at the time of your music festival accident
- Necessary steps to prevent slips, trips and falls, injuries by fires, explosions or crowd-related incidents were taken by organisers
- Equipment, footpaths and facilities were maintained in good working order and more
In short, establishing who was at fault and subsequently liable for injuries at a music festival requires gathering of evidence to demonstrate what caused an accident, when, and how.
Such evidence may include witness statements, statements by attending medical personnel, photographs of the scene and more.
Hurt at a music festival
If you sustained a personal injury at a music festival, we, Accident Advice Helpline, can assist you in gathering all necessary evidence to quickly and efficiently determine who was at fault.
Once it has been determined that someone else was responsible for your accidental injury, you may wish to make a personal injury claim against the responsible party.
We have the skills and experience to guide and support you through the claim process all the way to a successful conclusion under a no-win, no-fee* agreement.
What this means to you
Conditional fee, or no-win no-fee*, agreements basically mean that you pay nothing until your claim process has been concluded. Once the process is over, any solicitors’, legal and other fees and costs incurred during the claim process will be deducted from the compensation you are awarded.
As such, it is possible for you to make a claim after a slip, trip or fall, for instance, without having to worry about the financial implications of conducting a public liability claim.
