Most people who decide to go to a music festival have a great time and take home lots of great memories of the day. When the festival takes place over several days they could have a good chance to stay overnight in a tent so they are on-site for the majority of the time.
The one thing you would not expect when attending an event like this is to be injured at a music festival. Injuries are uncommon but there are circumstances that could arise where they may become more likely.
As anyone who has been injured at an event like this will tell you, it could have consequences you were not expecting. Not all injuries heal and are minor. Some could be more serious and need more extensive treatment.
Common types of incidents that could lead to being injured at a music festival
While some activities have been banned at some festivals, such as crowd surfing for example, they can still occur. If this was to happen and you were injured in the process (assuming it wasn’t you taking part in the crowd-surfing activity) there would be a chance you could be hurt.
Similarly you may find yourself crushed in a large crowd of people if the crowd-control measures in place at the venue were not good enough for the situation. The organisers of the festival have a duty of care to make sure they risk-assess the event and do everything they can to minimise the odds of anyone being injured in any way.
What about slips and
These are among the most common injuries that can occur anywhere, and they can potentially happen at festivals as well. If you have ever been injured at a festival because you slid over in a muddy field, or you tripped over an obstacle that should not have been present in the area you were in, you may have a chance to make a compensation claim.
