Las Vegas Music Festival Injuries and How to Avoid Them

Las Vegas hosts some of the best musical festivals in the world. From the entrancing beats at Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) to the amazingly diverse lineups at Life is Beautiful, the city hosts incredible shows that span every genre of popular music. While it’s easy to have fun when tens of thousands of people come together from all over the world to celebrate their favorite music, the potential for injuries is high. If you’ve been injured at a show then contact the Las Vegas music festival injuries lawyers at ER Injury Attorneys for immediate assistance.

To help you stay safe, the Las Vegas personal injury lawyers at ER Injury Attorneys have put together a guide on common Las Vegas music festival injuries.

Three Common Las Vegas Music Festival Injuries

While most music shows in Las Vegas are safe events that leave thousands of people entertained, some attendees end up injured. At times these injuries are blameless, while others are caused by the negligence or recklessness of another party. Here are three types of injuries that our team has seen from our clients:

Heat-Related Illness

Nevada’s climate is classified as semi-arid. This means that it is typically very hot and very dry during the warmer months, which is when music festivals usually take place. Many people, particularly visitors, underestimate the effects high temperatures and low humidity can have on the body. This can leave them susceptible to heat-related illnesses such as cramps, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke.

The best way to avoid heat-related sickness is to stay cool and hydrated. However, there may be times when events run out of water and other beverages to keep attendees thoroughly hydrated. ER Injury Attorneys can potentially handle your case if you believe that your heat sickness was caused by inadequate hydration availability.

Broken Bones and Soft Tissue Injuries

Many people like to get lost in music, especially electronic music that’s featured in shows like EDC. Some people dance aggressively, jumping high and flailing their arms. This type of dancing can be dangerous in a crowd. Aggressive movements can lead to injuries like broken bones, ligament sprains, and ligament or tendon tears.

While these injuries are often blameless, there are times when they are the fault of an event organizer. For example, a platform meant for dancing can have uneven or unstable surfaces that can lead to injuries. In other cases an aggressive dancer may hit another showgoer, causing a crowd-related injury. If you’ve suffered broken bones or soft tissue damage at a Las Vegas music festival and those injuries were caused by another party then you may be entitled to compensation.

Slip and Fall Injuries

Slips and falls are some of the most common injuries. They are especially common at music festivals, where plenty of beverages are consumed and spilled. Some slip and fall accidents are the responsibility of the event organizer or facility owner.

For example, if there’s a major spill in a heavily trafficked walkway, the venue operator may be obligated to rope off the area and clean up the spill to keep everyone safe. If they do not then they may be responsible for any injuries incurred due to the spill.
