Factors That Lead to Accidents at Concerts in New Jersey

A number of elements contribute to the danger of a concert injury. In crowded spaces, people can be suffocated or trampled, or they can be unable to safely reach an exit in the case of a medical emergency. Additionally, beverage spills and sweat can cause a hazard for slips and falls on hard surfaces. Lighters or projectiles can cause burns. And people are at higher risk for intoxication-related incidents, as often alcohol and controlled drugs are distributed and taken at concerts. While all of these incidents can cause personal injury, there are also structural hazards that can lead to tragedy. As in the case of the soccer stands that collapsed in England in 1985, killing 28, overcrowded venues without proper structural support can lead to devastating results. Additionally, undertrained or insufficient security and emergency response teams can make an accident or injury a bigger problem than it might have initially been.

Common Types of Injuries During Concerts

The most common types of injuries suffered in concert settings are slips and falls, intoxication poisoning or overdose, bruises caused by tight pressure in crowded areas, heat exhaustion, and respiratory distress, including suffocation.

Determining who is Liable for Concert Accident Injuries in NJ

In concert accidents, the venue owner or third-party security, health response, or vendor teams may be found liable for creating an unsafe environment, including allowing underaged individuals to purchase alcohol, not maintaining the premises, or not sufficiently training their employees. Additionally, individuals attending the concert can be held responsible for an accident if their reckless or actively harmful behavior caused you injury.
