As summer goes into full swing, people of all ages will be heading out to enjoy concerts, festivals, and other music-related events. But even an exciting and fun event like a concert can become a nightmare if there’s an accident and you find yourself injured as a result. Who can you turn to? Who is responsible? Sorting out the details of liability can be complex and confusing. That’s why it’s so important to have an attorney by your side.
We understand that not every type of accident can be prevented. But often, when one of our clients are injured, it’s due to someone else’s negligence.

Call us today at (201) 528-6928 to find out how we can help you.
What Kinds of Accidents Happen at Concerts?
Injuries frequently occur at concerts due to insufficient crowd control for a large number of fans present—11 people died, and many more were injured at a 1979 concert for The Who, for example. A Pearl Jam concert in 2000 also resulted in numerous deaths and injuries when a stage collapsed. Serving alcohol without a license, or overlooking substance use can also contribute. Some venues don’t follow fire codes, which can also have devastating consequences if something goes wrong.
A concert should be an event that creates memories that last a lifetime, not one that leads to short- or long-term injury, lost wages, or other damages. Unfortunately, sometimes the most carefree activities can result in devastating accidents. If you’ve been injured at a music venue, you need an experienced New Jersey personal injury attorney. Call Greenberg & Walden, LLC today at (201) 528-6928.
Who is Responsible for Accidents That Occur at Concerts?
Your attorney will need to review the circumstances of your accident to determine who should be held liable, and they may even conclude that more than one party has responsibility. If the case comes down to premises liability (the requirement that a venue provide a reasonably safe venue), the onus will likely be on the owner. Artists, security companies, and other entities may also have contributed to your accident, however. It’s best to let your lawyer review the facts in order to determine the best course of action.
Venues, bands, and insurance companies all may share responsibility for an injury that occurs during an event—but they’ll be prioritizing their own interests, not yours. With an experienced New Jersey personal injury attorney from the law firm of Greenberg & Walden, LLC, you’ll have an advocate who understands the law and can protect your rights.
