There’s nothing quite like going to a gig, seeing your favourite band or artist perform live, in the flesh on stage. When you’re singing along to the lyrics of your favourite track of all time, the last thing on your mind is being injured in an accident at a gig. But when you’re in a crowded public place, there’s the potential for accidents to happen, and if you have suffered injuries after an accident at a concert, then Accident Advice Helpline can give you the concert injury compensation advice you need. It might be that you’ve escaped with minor injuries or perhaps you have been seriously injured at a concert. Whatever has happened, there’s a three-year time limit to make a claim.
Accidents at concerts
With so many people crowded into one venue, it’s easy to see how accidents at concerts can happen. But how could you be injured at a gig? Since 2000, Accident Advice Helpline has offered concert injury compensation advice to hundreds of people, and we could help you too. Here are a few examples of the types of injuries people have claimed compensation for:
- Slip, trip or fall injuries such as a broken ankle or wrist, or cuts and bruises
- Crush injuries – these are common when a venue is packed over its intended capacity or if an emergency occurs and people need to leave the venue quickly
- Hearing loss or damage from overly loud speakers or feedback
- Eye injuries from people in the crowd throwing objects
- Food poisoning, if you’ve consumed food at the gig – this is common at outdoor concerts and music festivals
- Back or neck injuries – for example if somebody falls on you (whilst they’re on somebody else’s shoulders)
If you’ve been injured and needed to take time off work, you might be worrying about your finances. We can help you claim compensation for loss of earnings and our lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee basis, so you can afford to make a claim with us.
Making a claim
You shouldn’t have to suffer in silence after your accident, and if you’ve had the concert of a lifetime ruined by an accident that was somebody else’s fault, we can help you get the compensation you deserve. However you’ve been injured, call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 to find out more about making a claim today – it’s free to call us.
