For a while, it looked as though the music industry would have to increasingly get used to the fact that the lion’s share of its income would have to come from live shows and licensing agreements. While the growing popularity of streaming services has gone some way in fighting the effects of internet piracy on the business, festivals and large concerts continue to be a big money-spinner for artists and promoters alike. As such, over the summer months, it’s rare for one weekend to pass without some sort of music festival of one size or another taking place in Europe.
Big shows run by seasoned promoters typically make sure they’re completely covered from a health and safety standpoint because they don’t want to run the risk of not having licences granted for future events and aren’t too keen on being sued. Unfortunately though, smaller outfits may not be quite as safe, either as a result of corner-cutting, or because the people organising them don’t know what they’re doing. If you’re of a certain vintage, you’re probably of the opinion that these types of events shouldn’t be about red tape and bureaucracy, but you’d likely soon change your tune if you ended up getting injured in an accident that was not your fault while you were at one.
If you are unfortunate enough to get injured in an accident that was not your fault while attending a music festival or a similar event, you may well be able to sue the organiser with the assistance of a first rate injury solicitor.
Music festivals and no win no fee in Corbridge claims
While you may not be able to use the services of a decent solicitor to sue a festival promoter if your injury was sustained as a direct result of you being a little the worse for wear, as some people tend to be at these sorts of things, you might have a case if you get hurt as a result of the organiser’s negligence.
Say you were throwing some shapes on the floor of the dance tent, only for a piece of metal to fall from one of the lights above your head. If you were to need medical attention, you might have a personal injury case on your hands. Or maybe you suffered an injury after being crushed against the barrier next to the stage when watching your favourite band. If a solicitor from Accident Advice Helpline could prove that the promoter had not taken steps to make sure people in the first few rows of the audience were safe, you may be in line for a pay-out via a no win no fee in Corbridge claim.
If you want to discuss a no win no fee in Corbridge claim in more detail just call the advisers at Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500.
