Have you been hurt at a local event or festival?
As numerous towns, cities and villages host local events, festivals and fetes throughout the year, there are strict health and safety requirements in order to ensure the safety of participants and guests. Whilst some smaller events may only cater for a few hundred attendees, larger festivals can have tens of thousands of visitors so it’s important that they area is made safe for the duration of the event.
Whilst indoor events can be arranged more strictly, with each guest given an allocated seat, outdoor events can be trickier. Although there are a maximum number of attendees, people may not be expected to stay in a specific area or give specific seat numbers.
Although there are normally numerous security and medical staff on hand to assist with any injuries, they can’t all be prevented. Luckily, those that are injured can normally access medical care immediately but this doesn’t necessarily negate the fact that they have been hurt in the first place.
If the event organisers have failed to adequately maintain the safety of those attending, they could be held liable for any injuries which occur and they could face numerous compensation claims if more than one person is injured.
