Public Events – Slips, Trips & Falls
Public events can be anything from a festival to an exhibition, and usually involve a gathering of people in a public space. While these events can be enjoyable, accidents at public events can easily arise due to poor crowd management, un-safe equipment and structural issues. If you’ve been injured at an event in a public place, you could have the right to claim accident compensation.
Slips, trips or falls at Public Events
Due to the varying size and nature of public events, the level of personal risk can vary. Accidents at events such as music festivals are often the source of media attention, but slips, trips and falls can occur in a variety of other public events such as:
Marches, Processions & Demonstrations
Poor crowd management can often lead to energized crowds becoming disorderly and in serious cases stampedes can arise. Un-safe equipment like electrical cabling or weak structures such as stages, platforms, steps and barriers can cause a range of serious to minor injuries.
Safety at Public Events – your rights
It’s the responsibility of the event organiser to ensure your safety whilst at a public event - event organisers should be aware of possible risks and take measures to ensure the event is safe for you to attend. If an event organiser has potentially been negligent & put the safety of event attendees at risk they may be liable in the case of an accident.
If you attended an event and were injured, you could have the right to claim compensation for your injuries. Our accident lawyers have the experience & knowledge in these types of accident claims to help you.
