    Can I claim for an injury at a music concert?


    You may be able to make a personal injury claim for injuries sustained at a concert if they were someone else’s fault. You may have been injured during the concert, walking through the concert site during a break, or in the busy time when everybody was leaving. Whatever the precise timing of your accident, if someone else caused it, it happened in the last three years and meant you had to seek medical help, you could be able to claim financial compensation for it.

    Preparing your music concert injury claim

    Prepare your music concert injury claim by collecting as much information as you can about your accident. Any information that can show you were not at fault will be especially helpful to your case. Start by taking photographs wherever possible, focussing on the concert site and the environment as it was when you had your accident. This can be invaluable in showing others the context at the time of your accident. Next, try to find as many witnesses as possible and check if their recollection of your accident matches what happened; it has been shown in the past that people can remember things differently, even when they were all looking at the same thing. Describe the person who caused your accident, focussing on their actions, even if they may not have been intentional. Keep a record of the medical help you needed to seek and any related expenses.

    Should I feel guilty about claiming compensation?

    You should not feel guilty about raising a claim for financial compensation for personal injury. Even if the person who caused your accident did so accidentally, the impact of it on your life may be substantial. You could be experiencing stress or lasting physical effects. Your medical help could mean you are financially worse off, with high fees or expenses you cannot avoid. You could even have to take time off work, perhaps permanently, making you less financially secure than before.

    Health and safety regulations

    Your question, “can I claim for injuries at a music concerts?” might relate to injuries caused by someone physically close to you at the time. Yet, you may not have been the only person to suffer an injury at the time, in the case where the music concert facilities were the cause. Criminal negligence of inadequately maintaining a public venue could have caused your accident. The roof of the concert hall could have collapsed; the seating or standing area could have suddenly been impacted by bad maintenance, or the organisers may have let too many people attend the concert. The truth is, when you are attending a public event organised by other people, they are legally bound to safeguard your health and safety. If this does not happen, you could potentially raise a successful claim for financial compensation against them.
