    Glastonbury injuries kept to a minimum this year

    By David Brown on July 18, 2014

    Glastonbury Festival is well-known for the amount of mud that can arise when the weather is bad. The 2014 Festival has ended with far fewer injuries than were seen in the past. According to official figures from Festival Medical Services (a team of medically qualified volunteers put together for the event) over 3,000 people were seen by members of the team over the festivities. However only 61 of those seen were required to go to hospital. This was mainly down to the expert care and equipment provided by the medical team.

    The presence of mud makes walking (and indeed staying upright at all) very difficult. Most people have seen what Glastonbury can be like and the most common Glastonbury injuries tend to involve the lower limbs. Sprained and strained ankles were common and some suffered breaks to their ankles or legs in the more serious falls. However, thanks to the x-ray machine the team had – and their ability to plaster broken limbs on-site where possible – the hospital only received those patients who couldn’t easily be treated.

    Claiming compensation after an injury sustained at a festival

    Some would say Glastonbury injuries are part and parcel of the whole experience. Huge steps are always taken to make the venue as safe as it can possibly be. The organisers have a duty of care to ensure their site is safe and ready to use by those taking part and by the crowd.

    If you believe you have suffered an injury at this or any other festival, it is imperative that you have evidence that negligence was responsible for your injuries. A professional injury compensation lawyer can assist you with this.
