  • The insurance company representing any of the aforementioned parties.

Steps to Prove Your Case Against a Concert or Live Event Organizer

In order for you to prove that the party you are accusing is responsible for the damages you suffered and obtain from them the compensation you deserve, your lawyer must justify four things:

  1. Duty. The organizers of the concert or live event had a duty to keep all the people who attended it safe. There are proper rules and regulations in place to prevent festival goers from getting injured.
  2. Breach. You must prove that the breach of this duty occurred at the time of the injury.
  3. Causality. the link that must exist between the breach of duty and your injury, that is, you must demonstrate that your injury was caused because the responsible person did not act with the objective duty of care.
  4. Damages. These are the result of injuries obtained due to the negligence of the person responsible in your case. For payment of this value to be ordered, you must justify it through medical bills, lost wages or workers’ compensation.

Compensation for Injuries at a Concert or a Live Event

Filing a lawsuit against whoever is responsible for the injuries you sustained at the concert or live event may result in financial compensation to help you pay for your related economic and non-economic losses. That is why, if you prove liability, you may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Therapy
  • Past and future lost wages
  • Physical pain
  • Emotional suffering
  • Loss of consortium
  • Legal expenses
  • Wrongful death

What Happens if You are Also a Responsible Party?

The state of Nevada is ruled by comparative negligence, which means that if you, the plaintiff, were personally involved in some type of action that also caused and/or led to the injuries, it would not be solely the defendant’s fault, but also yours because you have also done something to cause your own injuries.

Comparative negligence is a type of defense that the defendant presents at trial to show that he is not entirely at fault for the plaintiff’s injuries. Comparative negligence results in a reduction of the plaintiff’s monetary damages, so your compensation will be for the value that corresponds to the percentage of fault or responsibility that you had.
