Common injuries at concerts and when to make an injury claim after suffering one
If you are at a concert, then you are probably already aware of some of the things which may pose a risk to you. Concert venues are often very dark and very crowded, making it more likely that you will trip and fall, or that you will be pushed down by accident. Not only this, but there is often a lot of alcohol within venues, and drunk people can cause accidents quite often, whilst the level of sound within these venues is almost always at potentially dangerous levels for your hearing.
If you want to take care of yourself properly within a venue, it might help to know which are some of the most common injuries, and how you can prevent them.
- Slips and falls. A concert venue is almost always a very dark environment, with slippery floors due to spilt drinks and the type of flooring that there is. With being unable to see quite as well and all of the people in the venue blocking your view of the ground. slipping or falling over is fairly common and can be quite painful.
- Crowd injuries. These can be very dangerous if you are not careful, as in a crowd you are exposed to a huge number of people, who are all moving and pushing at the same time. If you are at the front of a crowd right by the barrier then you risk being squashed by the force of the crowd moving forward, whilst at other shows you risk being pushed around by people dancing or moshing.
- Alcohol-based injuries. Drinking at concerts should be kept to a fairly low level, however it isn’t always and if you are drinking at a concert you may injure yourself seriously because you don’t know the venue as well as you may know the pubs and clubs that you normally drink in. It is also quite easy to lose your friends because of the amount of people that are around.
