    Compensation for a music festival accident


    Music festivals often take place through the summer months in the UK as they typically take place outside. Even when the weather isn’t that pleasant there will be a good chance of thousands of people descending on a particular area to make the most of whatever festival is being held there.

    While the majority of those thousands of people will return home safely with no ill effects, the occasional person might be unfortunate enough to find themselves the victim of a music festival accident.

    What could happen to cause a music festival accident?

    You’d expect large crowds of people to be involved in the activities at a music festival. Whoever organised the festival should account and plan for this, so there is little chance of too many people being in one confined area. This could lead to crush injuries and other potential incidents taking place.

    Appropriate plans should be made to ensure no one is in any danger while attending a festival of this nature. For example the stage areas should be safely and properly constructed with no danger of anything falling on someone in the crowd. There should also be little chance of someone being hurt in an altercation where glass bottles are thrown. This is why many festivals don’t allow glass and serve everything in plastic bottles or containers instead.

    Have you been hurt at a music festival?

    Being hurt at a festival of this nature can be upsetting, not to mention incurring serious injuries in some cases. Thankfully these instances are uncommon, but even one instance of an injury at a festival could ruin the life of the person concerned.

    Many things have been banned at festivals, including crowd surfing, to further reduce the odds of anyone being injured. However if some people decide to try this and you happen to be nearby as the person falls to the floor and hits you in the process, you could still be injured.
