Concert venues are ripe for many potential causes of injury – slip and fall injuries, especially. Sometimes these injuries are caused by the property owner, the management company of the venue, the security company (if any), fellow concert-goers and even the entertainer.
The most experienced injury attorneys in Las Vegas, at Greenman, Goldberg, Raby and Martinez, can help you determine whether you have a case worth pursuing. Certain benchmarks must be met, including:
Have you sustained damages?
They don’t have to amount to millions, but you must have sustained damages, including, economic damages, such as medical bills and, usually, lost wages; non-economic damages, particularly pain, suffering and emotional distress; and any other expenses incurred as a direct result of the accident.
Can fault be established?
Personal injury cases pivot on the issue of fault; without it, a personal injury case cannot proceed. A plaintiff must prove someone’s actions or inactions caused an injury to occur. Put another way, this means someone must have either knowingly created an unsafe condition or knew about the condition and failed to remedy it. In other words, they were negligent.
Understandably, people who have sustained an injury sometimes assume fault is simple to prove – or should be. In fact, the most skilled injury attorneys know fault can sometimes be tricky to prove especially in these types of cases. It’s a fallacy to think there is any such thing as an “ironclad” personal injury case.
Is it clear who is at fault?
Injuries caused by a structure collapse, wet pavement, a rickety staircase, poor lighting or an obstruction can appear straightforward compared with, say, an injury caused by a drunken concert-goer who punches someone in the nose and renders that person unconscious. Was the venue owner aware of that person’s drunken state – and can it be proved? – but failed to act? This may be sufficient to establish negligence against the venue owner. On the other hand, if the venue owner was unaware of the disorderly conduct (and had no way of knowing about it), that drunken third party may be the only party held liable. Overcrowding and insufficient security can be factors in a personal injury (or premise liability) suit, but they can complicate an already complex web of events.
