Stadium and Arena Injuries
Large buildings such as stadiums and arenas have a variety of operational and maintenance needs. If a building owner or manager fails to correct any of the safety concerns that can arise during the operating and maintaining of such a facility, this negligent can put guests as well as employees at risk of sustaining an injury due to an unaddressed hazard. However, people harmed because of a property owner’s or manager’s lack of safety precautions may be entitled to sue for financial compensation as a result of their injuries.
Potential Safety Hazards in Stadiums and Arenas
Property owners and managers are liable for known and preventable premises hazards that may seriously endanger guests or employees in stadiums and special events arenas. The following should be inspected and addressed before anyone is hurt:
- Uneven flooring
- Broken or unstable railings
- Open electrical currents
- Shattered or falling glass dangers
- Slicks and spills on the property
- Presence of hazardous materials
- Boiler room dangers
- Fire hazards
These issues should be repaired or cordoned off before a person is injured. Should a property owner or manager fail to take these crucial steps to avoiding injuries, he or she may be held financially responsible for the consequences of this inaction.
If you or someone you love has been injured in an arena or stadium due to a property owner’s or manager’s negligence, you may be entitled to financial compensation for the costs related to those injuries.
