The last thing on your mind when going to a music concert is having an accident, so you may feel that a music concert injury claim is not on the agenda when you set out. But perhaps the concert was overcrowded, the venue fundamentally unsafe, or you were badly affected by the suddenly reckless behaviour of other people. You should be able to go to a concert to just enjoy it, whereas on this occasion your enjoyment was disrupted by your injury. You can claim financial compensation for your music concert injury if it happened in the last three years, was caused by other people and meant you had to seek medical help.
When you go to a big public event like a music concert, you are protected by a number of health and safety regulations and laws. The concert organisers are legally bound to ensure your health and safety. The venue needs to be adequately safe and there is a limit on the number of people who are allowed to attend. If a music concert venue becomes unsafe because its floor gives way or because the ceiling, stage or seating area collapse, you are within your rights to start a claim for financial compensation. Overcrowding can happen before you know it; there can be a fine line between a lively and an excessively busy event. Again, being crushed or trampled on because the concert staff gave entry to too many people gives you the right to start a financial claim process.
