Have you been hurt at a festival or concert?
With numerous concert and festival venues all over the United Kingdom, it’s relatively easy for most people to attend live gigs and concerts. Whilst most festivals tend to take place in the summer months, music concerts and comedy gigs occur throughout the year. Although indoor events are generally well managed, it can be harder to patrol open air events, particularly if hundreds of thousands of people are in attendance. Whilst festival organisers are required to have security and medical staff in place for the duration of the event, it can be difficult to prevent any injuries from occurring, simply due to the large amount of people in the area. If you’ve been hurt at an event our injury solicitor in Pidley could possibly help you.
When popular acts or bands are playing, fans are often keen to get as near to the stage as possible. This can result in people being pushed or shoved and, in worse instances, people being crushed. Generally, festival organisers do attempt to prevent this from happening and acts will suspend their sets if the crowd gets out of control but injuries can still occur.
If you’re hurt whilst attending a music event or a festival, you should be able to access medical help relatively quickly. As there are normally paramedics and trained first aiders on site, they can normally administer any urgent care you need and arrange for you to be transported to hospital if this is necessary.
