Music Festival Claims- I’ve been injured can I claim?
While for some, summer is a chance to escape everyday life and jet off somewhere exotic, for others, it signals the start of the festival season. Whether you’re planning on raving at Creamfields, getting muddy at Reading or setting up camp at Worthy Farm, there’s a music festival to suit everyone.
However, with thousands of music fans coming together in a crowded environment and some people drinking more than they ordinarily would, unfortunately, festival conditions can sometimes prove favourable for accidents. Sometimes, these accidents can result in personal injury.
If you have been involved in an accident at a festival within the last three years, you may be able to make a festival personal injury claim.TRY THE ONLINE ELIGIBILITY CHECKER
Types of music festival injuries
The kinds of personal injury that can occur at festivals and concerts include:
- Equipment falling on people
- Bruising and soft tissue damage
- Injuries from overcrowding
- Knocks to the head or neck injuries
- Being injured by broken glass
- Trips or falls
- Deafness or other hearing problems
In recent years, health and safety enforcement at festivals and other organised events has improved. However, because of the British weather and muddy fields, some accidents, such as slips or trips are still common.
It can sometimes be difficult to find out who is liable for an accident at a music festival. However, the Occupier’s Liability Act places a duty of care on festival organisers or landowners. These individuals have a responsibility to take steps to protect the people attending their events. If you’ve suffered an injury because of the festival organisers’ negligence, you may be able to make a music festival claim for compensation.
Alternatively, you may have been injured because of the actions of another festivalgoer. If this is the case, you may be able to bring a claim against them.MAKE AN ENQUIRY TODAY
