Causes of Concert Accidents

One of the common types of concert accidents is overcrowding, which can lead to tripping, falling, or getting hit as fans jostle their way through the crowd to get better views of the stage.

This can stem from poor crowd control, such as failure to provide adequate security or failing to address unruly behavior, which can escalate and become extremely dangerous.

Stage design and lighting can affect the safety of a concert-goer. Every year, there are accidents or injuries caused by collapsing sets, falling from the stage, poorly constructed stages, and unforeseen hazards.

The use of pyrotechnics and other hazardous materials can also lead to serious injuries and often cause property damage.

There can be equipment malfunctions or failure of necessary safety equipment like cables, rigging, or even sound systems, which can cause serious injuries to artists, crew, and concert-goers alike.

Negligence or intentionally dangerous behavior by the venue, organizers, or performers can be a significant cause of concert accidents as well. If you have been injured at a concert, contact the law office of Goldberg & Loren today. 

Types of Injuries at Concerts

Soft Tissue Injuries

Soft tissue injuries are some of the most common types of injuries that people can sustain at a concert. Soft tissue refers to the muscles, ligaments, tendons, and other tissues that connect and support the body’s bones and organs.

These injuries can be caused by a variety of factors, including overuse, sudden impacts, or twisting and bending motions. At concerts, soft tissue injuries can be caused by several factors, such as being jostled by crowds, participating in mosh pits, or dancing vigorously. Crowd jostling can cause people to be pushed or shoved, resulting in twisted ankles, sprains, or strains.

Mosh pits, where people are jumping, pushing, and colliding with each other, can result in blunt trauma, trips, and falls, which can lead to soft tissue injuries. Vigorous dancing, particularly in cases where people are not adequately warmed up or are dehydrated, can also result in injuries such as torn muscles, muscle strains, or other soft tissue tears. Inadequate security measures and inadequate lighting in dimly lit areas can increase the likelihood of sustaining soft tissue injuries at concerts.

The use of fireworks or pyrotechnics during concerts can significantly enhance the entertainment value of an event. However, these types of activities pose a considerable risk of burns and explosions, causing potential injury to concertgoers. A pyrotechnic malfunction can cause sudden and violent bursts, leading to severe burns.

Types of Injuries at Concerts

Heat Exhaustion & Dehydration

Heat exhaustion and dehydration are two common health risks that can occur at concerts, particularly during outdoor events or indoor venues without proper air conditioning or ventilation. Hot and humid weather, coupled with physical exertion, can cause these conditions. In crowded concert areas, people may become dehydrated due to alcohol consumption and lack of access to water or sheltered environments.

These conditions can lead to heat exhaustion, which can be characterized by symptoms such as sweating, nausea, dizziness, and fatigue. If left untreated, heat exhaustion can worsen and lead to heatstroke, which could be life-threatening. Certain medications or underlying medical conditions like diabetes or heart conditions can increase the risk of heat exhaustion and dehydration. 

Therefore, it’s important that concert organizers take preventative measures to minimize the risk of these health issues during their events. This includes providing free water or cooling stations, encouraging frequent breaks, providing medical assistance, and having appropriate ventilation and cooling measures in place.

Concert goers should also be conscious of their own physical limitations and maintain proper hydration by drinking water and avoiding excessive alcoholic drinks. If heat exhaustion or dehydration symptoms arise, concertgoers should immediately seek medical help and remove themselves from the concert area to rest in a cool, shaded location.

Crush Injuries

Crowd crushes occur when an overwhelming number of people gather in a confined space, such as the front row or near the stage, resulting in a loss of personal space and mobility.

As the excitement escalates, fans may unwittingly get caught in a turbulent ocean of bodies, pushing and shoving in an attempt to get closer to the stage or escape the pressure. Unfortunately, this chaotic environment can quickly turn dangerous, leading to multiple injured parties.

Crush injuries at concerts can range from minor bruises and cuts to more severe incidents, such as broken bones, fractures, internal bleeding, spinal cord damage, and even death. The sheer force and weight exerted by the crowd can be overwhelming, leaving victims trapped and helpless.

In addition to the physical harm, crush injuries can also lead to emotional trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), particularly for those who experience the horror of being unable to breathe or escape the chaos.

Crowd Management Strategies estimates that 10,000 people have been injured in and around mosh pits in the last decade. [1]

Crush Injuries

Broken Bones, Lacerations, and Internal Injuries

Broken bones, lacerations, and internal injuries are all potential risks for concert-goers. A slip and fall during a crowded performance can result in broken bones or fractures.

Pushing through a crowd can cause lacerations, which can be especially threatening near sensitive areas such as the eyes or neck.

Concert injuries can have long-term health effects, including chronic pain and physical limitations.

Seek medical attention if an injury is sustained during a concert, and consult a personal injury lawyer at Goldberg & Loren if the at-fault party is either a concert organizer or the venue.

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBIs)

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) can, unfortunately, occur in a variety of ways at concerts, posing a significant risk to concertgoers. One common cause of traumatic brain injuries at concerts is crowd surges or mosh pits, where people are pushed, jostled, and sometimes forcefully thrown into one another.

The high energy and chaotic atmosphere can lead to accidental collisions, falls, or being struck by crowd surfers or stage equipment, resulting in head injuries. Stage diving or crowd surfing gone wrong can cause individuals to fall and land on their heads, leading to severe brain trauma.

The combination of large crowds, intense music, lighting effects, and the desire to get closer to the stage can create a dangerous environment where TBIs can occur. It is important for concertgoers to be aware of this risk and take necessary precautions to stay safe, such as avoiding overcrowded areas and being mindful of their surroundings.

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBIs)

Emotional Distress 

Injuries sustained at concerts can have a significant emotional impact on concert-goers, causing them to have a difficult time getting past the event. A traumatic incident, such as a serious injury caused by the negligence of the concert venue or organizers, can lead to long-term emotional trauma and PTSD.

Witnessing others being seriously injured in a concert injury can also be emotionally traumatic and lead to feelings of sadness, fear, or anxiety.

There may be ongoing physical pain and limitations that can lead to depression, frustration, and other negative emotions.

Concert injuries can be especially traumatic for individuals who are passionate about live music events and may cause them to lose love for this form of entertainment.

If you have suffered emotional distress as a result of a concert injury, seek help from a mental health provider.
