Whether you’re a big fan of rock, country, pop, alternative, or rap, there is a performance for everyone to view and enjoy in Las Vegas.
For many Americans and international tourists, what better excuse to travel to Las Vegas than to see your favorite musician?
With residencies and one-off performances from the music industry’s finest, there’s a concert in Las Vegas for everyone. Maroon 5, Bruno Mars, Kelly Clarkson, Garth Brooks, Keith Urban, Melissa Lambert, Adelle, and Usher are routinely putting on a show in Las Vegas.
While most concerts in Las Vegas are held without incident, hundreds of people are injured in concert accidents every year.
Types and Causes of Concert Accidents
Concert promoters and venue owners in Las Vegas must make their premises reasonably safe for their patrons.
As concerts are often held in places jam-packed with fans, the chances of accidents occurring rise significantly.
Common causes of accidents at Las Vegas concerts include suffocation, dehydration, slip-and-fall accidents, overcrowding, trampling, pushing, shoving, falling down stairs, pyrotechnic accidents, hit by projectiles, escalator accidents, seat collapses, excessive physical force by bouncers and security personnel, discrimination, and inadequate security.
Liability In A Las Vegas Concert Accident
Under Nevada premises liability laws, concert promoters and venues have a high duty of care to protect concert attendees. As a concert attendee, you are considered an invitee of the concert and therefore are afforded the utmost protection by Nevada premises liability laws. The failure of a concert venue to maintain the property or to prevent criminal activity from occurring on the premises could lead to a claim for damages when an accident occurs.
The owner or operator of the venue has the responsibility to warn of any hidden dangers in the facility and ensure that any physical altercations are averted or stopped as quickly as possible.
When a concert attendee is injured, they may file a lawsuit, claiming that one or more parties were responsible for the injury.
Parties liable for Las Vegas concert injuries may include the promoter, facility owner, musicians, security company, food or merchandising vendor, or even another concertgoer.
Unraveling which party is responsible when an injury occurs can take time and effort. Unless there is clear-cut evidence, such as negligence on the part of a venue owner or a blatant lack of adequate security, concert injury lawsuits can get tricky. Determining liability in a personal injury or wrongful death case from a concert accident is a fact-specific inquiry. At Pacific West Injury Law, our premises liability lawyers in Las Vegas begin with thoroughly investigating your claim. We research the facts to determine how to pursue your case best. Getting to the bottom of the facts can help determine who is responsible for your injuries and how it’s best to make a claim.
Concert injuries in Las Vegas can require extensive medical treatment, cause you to lose time from work, and prevent you from doing the things you once enjoyed. Suppose you prevail in a Nevada personal injury lawsuit for concert injuries. In that case, you may be entitled to recover the economic and non-economic damages you incurred due to someone else’s negligence.
You may still be able to recover damages under Nevada’s modified comparative negligence law, even if you were partly at fault for a concert injury.
If another party or parties were at least fifty percent to blame, you can recover some of your damages.
