The sun is blazing, speakers are blaring, and you are about 4 inches from the people standing next to you. You are among the masses crooning to the music at a summer music festival. Beyond remembering to keep hydrated and trying not to lose your friends in the huge crowds, there is something else you should be watching out for; the crowds themselves.
There were over 200 deaths globally from crowd accidents at music concerts and festivals in the ten years spanning from 1992 to 2002. During that decade more than 66,000 people were left injured at these events from crowd control gone wrong.
To help keep safety in mind while enjoying a performance by your favorite band, remember the acronym FIST:
If you or someone you know has suffered injury or death because of a crowd accident at a concert, you are not alone and you have the right to seek damages for any losses you incurred.
