Festival and concert accident claims

Music festivals and concerts are very popular forms of entertainment. Each year thousands of people attend festivals such as Glastonbury or any number of musical concerts and have an enjoyable experience.

However if you have been injured at a festival or concert which was not your fault then you may be able to claim compensation.

Festivals and concerts are a great way of seeing bands or listening to acts whilst in the company of other like-minded people. They enable huge numbers of people to congregate together for the purpose of enjoying themselves and generally, pass off without any problems.

But whilst the potential is there for fun and enjoyment there is also the potential for danger as well.

Potential risks of festivals and concerts

These types of events involve large numbers of people coming together, often in a crowded environment, and with large amounts of alcohol.

These events require a great deal of planning and organisation in order to ensure that everything goes smoothly and with the minimum of fuss. It also means having contingency plans in place to deal with any complications such as extreme weather which would require immediate evacuation.

But if there is inadequate protection or planning then problems can arise which escalate very quickly. This can put the safety of thousands of people at risk.

If something goes wrong due to negligence on the part of the festival organisers; and this leads to you becoming injured then you may be able to claim compensation.

Time limit for claiming compensation for a festival or concert accident

Personal injury claims have a 3 year deadline: this usually applies in most cases but there are a few exceptions.

When we say a ‘few exceptions’ this means that these types of claims have a longer time limit.

Check with your lawyer or solicitor about the deadline for your type of claim.
