Our attorneys handle premises liability claims involving the following:
Swimming Pool Accidents: These types of cases can occur because the pool is not properly protected by a fence or barrier. When a property owner fails to adequately secure their pool, they may be found liable for any injury that occurs as a result.
Amusement Park Accidents: We deal with a fair number of theme park accidents. These accidents can range from minor injuries to deadly accidents depending on when and how the accident occurred. It is important to remember that a waiver does not automatically exempt a property owner from liability for injuries.
Concert Injuries: If your injury was foreseeable, and the venue owner did not adequately address the potential threat, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the venue owner to recover compensation. If you’re injured by an element of the performer’s show — such as errant pyrotechnics — you may be able to file a lawsuit against the performer, their management company, or another third-party. In 2003, the Station Nightclub in Warwick, Rhode Island caught fire after the band’s manager set off pyrotechnics inside the club. 100 people were killed and 230 were injured. Lawsuits against more than two dozen defendants eventually led to a $176 million settlement, according to reports. More recently, 14 concertgoers were injured at a Backstreet Boys concert in Oklahoma, when a sudden storm with high wind gusts blew over trusses at the venue’s entrance, injuring some concertgoers waiting in line.
Some of the most common concert accidents include:
- Escalator accident
- Falling down stairs
- Hit by projectile
- Pyrotechnic accidents
- Seat collapse
- Slips and falls
- Stage collapse
Slip and Falls: Slip and falls usually occur because the victim has
not been properly alerted by the property owner of hazards such as wet floors, icy grounds, slippery surfaces, or uneven pavement.
Assault Due to Negligent Security: Property owners are required to provide security when their property is located in an area that is likely to attract crime. The property owner can be found liable if an attack occurs on a piece of property that lacks adequate security. Examples can include assaults that occur in mall parking lots or rapes
in hotel rooms.
Elevator/Escalator Accident: Individuals who have been injured due to the malfunction of an elevator or escalator may be able to file a premises liability lawsuit against the owner of the property. Victims of elevator and escalator accidents may also be able to file a claim against the manufacturer of the elevator or escalator.
