Throughout the year, stadiums and similar large public venues house thousands of people for major events such as sports games or concerts. In order to safely hold visitors, premises owners and managers must carefully maintain their properties, such as ensuring that elevators, escalators, stairs, balconies, and other structures are safe for use. If property owners fail to take care of their premises, they may seriously endanger their patrons.
Stadium and arena accidents can leave guests facing serious injuries, high medical bills, lost wages, and other frustrating damages. However, patrons hurt because of a property owner’s thoughtlessness deserve a fair chance at justice. At the Law Offices of Paul Levin, we can help victims injured in stadium accidents in Connecticut fight for the full, generous compensation they deserve.
Premises Liability and Stadium Injuries
Public venue owners and their managers are responsible for properly maintaining their premises and closing off potentially dangerous areas. The following are common sources of stadium accidents and should be addressed before anyone is injured:
- Electrocution concerns due to loose or uncovered wiring
- Slip and fall dangers, such as unmarked steps or spills
- Elevator and escalator malfunctions
- Unsecured railings on balconies
If someone is hurt because a property owner failed to address potential safety concerns at a public arena or stadium, the negligent person or party at fault may be held liable for that individual’s injuries.
