Regardless of the case, you must speak to a personal injury attorney if you’ve suffered injuries at the Hollywood Bowl. Legal experts at Ehline Law can determine the negligent party and help you understand your legal options to pursue compensation.
A lot can go wrong when a large crowd is gathered in one place.
Here are some of the types of accidents that can happen at the Hollywood Bowl:
Trampling: This can occur when an emergency evacuation at Hollywood Bowl or when the main act hits the stage, resulting in a massive number of people rushing forward. Besides other types of injuries, trampling can also cause a traumatic brain injury.
Fights: Where there is live music, alcohol is abundant. Concert goers drink throughout the event, get intoxicated, and could start or get into a fight.
Mosh pits: Common in heavy metal concerts, mosh pits are violent forms of dancing that are extremely dangerous and result in fights.
Slip and fall accidents: With drinks moving from one place to another, floors can get extremely slippery, and due to bad lighting, one can easily slip and fall.
Projectiles: In the heat of the moment, fans can get unruly and start throwing around objects that can hit another person, causing serious harm.
Overdose: Unfortunately, music events attract a lot of booze and drugs, causing serious intoxication and even overdose if individuals are not careful.
Heatstroke: Although not an accident, dehydration and heat during summer events can cause heat injuries, exhaustion, and sunburns.
Depending on the specifics of the accident, victims can pursue a personal injury claim against the property owner or a third party.
Premises liability requires owners to ensure reasonable care for their guests and occupants, ensuring their safety while on the premises. This could include providing security at an event, ensuring safety rails, so people don’t fall from heights, and clearing wet floors immediately.
For example, a motor vehicle collision happens on the Hollywood Bowl premises due to insufficient lighting. The accident wouldn’t have happened if there had been enough lights in the parking lot.
Therefore, accident victims can hold the property owner responsible for the car accident for not ensuring adequate lighting.
The most common type of accident at a concert is a slip and fall accident due to the property owner’s negligence. Owners must ensure a safe environment for all their guests, and accident victims can hold them responsible for any slip and fall accidents due to slippery floors.
A massive crowd and the constant flow of alcohol can be an accident. Excessive drinking can cause tailgate fights to break out among other drunk concertgoers. The security team is responsible for handling the situation and ensuring no one gets hurt. Any injuries during the fight due to the failure of the security team could make them responsible for the injuries.
Over the years, many car crashes near the Hollywood Bowl have occurred, either due to sheer negligence, carelessness, or intoxication. Victims can hold other drivers responsible for car accidents outside the premises due to the driver’s negligence.
You must hire a personal injury attorney to help investigate the accident and determine the party responsible for your injuries.
Whether vehicle accidents, slip, and fall incidents, or any other personal injury accident, the California statute of limitations allow an accident victim to pursue a claim or personal injury lawsuit against the negligent party within two years following the accident.
After the two-year period ends, accident victims lose their right to pursue legal action against the negligent party. You must start the legal process immediately as gathering evidence, filing claims, and negotiating with the insurance company can take considerable time.
