If you’ve been injured at a gig in the town, injury solicitors in Bellshill may charge you more than the price of your ticket to make a claim. A far more affordable option would be to make a 100% no win, no fee claim with Accident Advice Helpline.
Common injuries sustained at gigs
Attending a gig or concert at a live music venue means you’re in an environment with lots of other people, and so there is the potential for accidents to occur. Here are just a few examples of the types of injuries Accident Advice Helpline has handled claims for the past 15 years and more:
- Crush injuries, usually sustained after crowds try to evacuate a venue in an emergency – these could include cracked ribs, head injuries, cuts and bruises and broken bones
- Injuries caused by objects falling from height (such as lights or sound equipment) such as head, face and back injuries
- Slip, trip or fall injuries such as broken bones or a sprained ankle
- Hearing damage from faulty sound equipment
- Food poisoning after eating food prepared and sold at the venue
- Injuries caused by the surroundings – for example lacerations from a broken seat, scalds from a faulty hot tap in the toilets etc.
