Morgan & Morgan FAQ

  • What Types of Accidents Can Happen at MSG?

    Madison Square Garden hosts approximately 320 events a year, and with its large crowds, tight spaces, dim lighting, and stairs, it's not surprising that accidents may happen at Madison Square Garden. Depending on the situation, the injuries that can occur at MSG can range anywhere from minor cuts and bruises to severe or even life-threatening injuries. Below we have provided you with some of the most common types of injuries that can occur at Madison Square Garden.

    Slip and Falls: At Madison Square Garden, slip and fall accidents can happen for a multitude of reasons, including, but not limited to, slippery floors due to spilled food, and drinks, rips in carpeting, or even slippery floor wax. 

    Poor Visibility Accidents: Dim lighting in an arena can make it difficult to see where you are going or where things are and can lead to accidents. Arenas like MSG have an obligation to ensure walkways and stairways on the property are adequately lit for their visitors.

    Falling Objects: Whether the falling object is a sign, lighting fixtures, or anything that may fall from the rafters, unsuspecting visitors may suffer injuries. In some cases, MSG visitors may also suffer an injury from the crowds who may throw things like bottles or cups. These falling objects can cause serious head injuries.

    Elevator and Escalator Accidents: Defective or improperly tended elevators, escalators, or wheelchair lifts could cause major accidents that leave victims with severe or even life-threatening injuries.

    Assault: Unfortunately, assaults can happen in crowds at arenas like Madison Square Garden. While you would more likely hold the assaulter liable for this case, MSG is responsible for providing security to help prevent these issues. 

    For many of the incident types listed, Madison Square Garden also has a duty to keep the outside of the arena free of dangerous conditions. This includes maintaining the sidewalks surrounding the area free from standing water, ice, snow, any dangerous debris, or uneven or cracked walkways. 

  • Who is Liable for My Injuries at MSG?

    Under New York State negligence laws, the owners and managers of Madison Square Garden are responsible for keeping their visitors safe from unreasonable harm by warning their visitors of any unavoidable dangerous conditions, as well as removing those dangerous conditions as soon as possible. However, in some cases, the arena may not be solely liable for your injuries. 

    Depending on the case, third parties such as concession stand managers, maintenance and cleaning crews, other property owners, or visitors may be responsible for the dangerous conditions that caused your injuries. For more information on who could be liable for your injuries, you can connect with a Morgan & Morgan Injury attorney today.

  • What Compensation Types Could I Recover for My Injuries?

    In a personal injury lawsuit, plaintiffs can recover compensation for certain damages related to their injuries. There are several types of damages plaintiffs could get in a personal injury lawsuit, some of which are considered “economical” and are tied to specific costs incurred in the aftermath of an injury. Other forms are considered “noneconomic,” which are more subjective to the case. While every case can vary when it comes to what victims can recover, below, we have provided a list of the most common form of compensation for an injury case.

    Medical Bills: Those who have suffered an injury may require treatment. Compensation for medical bills can cover tests, treatment, hospital stays, and outpatient care to address immediate injuries. In some cases, medical treatment may extend beyond the present. Certain injuries can become permanent, requiring victims to receive ongoing medical treatment. When this happens, medical bills can skyrocket to hundreds of thousands of dollars.

    Lost Wages: Certain injuries can impact you in ways that keep you from being able to work. Whether you took time off using your sick days to head to doctors' appointments or if your injuries were so harmful that you were admitted to the hospital, it's all time that you had to take off from work. Whether it’s the loss of a few days or the inability to work going forward, you could be entitled to compensation for those lost wages.

    Pain and Suffering: Compensation for pain and suffering is based on the trials you went through and will continue to go through due to the injuries you've sustained. In order to gain compensation for pain and suffering, plaintiffs will need to gather evidence in the form of medical records–which can show diagnoses, prescriptions, clinical visits, and hospital stays. Victims must be proactive about their treatment and communicate with their physicians regarding their injuries. 

    Emotional Distress: This form of compensation is rewarded based on the injured party's mental and emotional state after an accident. Injuries do not only harm a person's body. Depending on the nature of the accident in which the victim was harmed, it could cause them to suffer from issues like anxiety and depression to severe mental trauma, such as post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD. Victims who claim emotional distress will need to acquire comprehensive and accurate records from their therapist, psychologist, or psychiatrist and a diagnosis of a specific psychiatric condition in order to receive compensation.

    Wrongful Death: Wrongful death claims are filed by the survivors of the individual or individuals who were killed due to the negligence or misconduct of another individual or party. Compensation in the form of wrongful death can help ease the financial burdens survivors face associated with the loss of a loved one, which includes, but is not limited to, lost income, leftover bills, and funeral expenses. In some cases, wrongful death can also help ease the burden for the children who suffer the sudden and unnecessary loss of someone's parent/guardian. Cases like these can be referred to as "lost parental companionship, instruction, and guidance."

    Loss of Consortium:  If you or a loved one have been injured and are unable to carry out a complete relationship, be it with your spouse or partner, or if you or your loved one were killed, you may be eligible to receive compensation for the loss of that companionship.

    Punitive Damages: is considered a punishment toward the defendant when the court deems that their actions or behavior is found to be especially harmful. Punitive Damages can also dissuade other parties and companies from engaging in similar activity in the future. In order for the court to award this form of compensation, the actions that caused the injury must be found to have either been intentional or the result of willful misconduct.

    While it is rarely granted, punitive damages can be awarded in certain New York personal injury cases.

    We highly recommend that victims keep detailed records of their injuries by taking photos and videos in order to gather sufficient evidence that accurately represents their condition. This evidence can provide the court with enough information to estimate how much you should receive should you be awarded compensation for your injuries. For more information regarding the forms of compensation you may be eligible to receive for your injury case, contact a Morgan & Morgan attorney today.

  • What Evidence Should I Collect from My Injury at MSG?

    As previously mentioned, collecting evidence can significantly influence how much you are able to recover for your injuries. So after you have reported the incident to the appropriate parties at Madison Square Garden and have received medical care, in order to strengthen your case, you will need to begin collecting the following evidence:

    • Eyewitness testimonies over your injuries and their contact information.
    • Surveillance footage and photographs from the arena and of the dangerous condition that caused your accident.
    • Paperwork detailing your injuries, including incident reports, medical reports, and any other records filed surrounding your incident. 
    • Contact information of eyewitnesses and anyone else involved in the accident, including arena employees on duty at the time. 

    When it comes to your injury case, collecting evidence can feel like a daunting task. That is why you should work with an attorney who is highly experienced with injury cases like these. They will work with you to ensure that you have all your bases covered to help boost your chances of getting the full and fair compensation you deserve for your injuries.
