While for some, summer is a chance to escape the banality of everyday life and jet off somewhere exotic, for others, it signals the start of the festival season. Whether you’re planning on raving in the Scottish countryside at T in the Park or setting up camp at Worthy Farm, there is a music festival to suit everyone’s musical taste.
However, with thousands of music fans coming together in a crowded environment and people drinking more than they would ordinarily, unfortunately, festival conditions sometimes prove favourable for accidents that can result in personal injury.
The kinds of personal injury that can occur at festivals and concerts include:
In recent years, health and safety enforcement at festivals and other organised events has improved. Despite this, as a result 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 event. If you have suffered an injury whilst at a music festival as a result of the negligence of the organisers, then 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.
