Dangers of Stadiums

Stadiums and sports arenas are meant to provide fans with a fun and enjoyable atmosphere where they can enjoy games, concerts, or other events and make memories with friends and family. Unfortunately, if the stadium designers or operators act negligently, it can lead to many serious safety problems that can result in dangerous accidents. Stadium owners owe a duty of care to the patrons that walk through stadium gates, and if they fail to adequately fulfill their responsibilities, they may be legally liable for harm that befalls fans.

If you or a loved one has been injured at a stadium due to the negligence of the facility’s owners or agents, you may be entitled to seek financial compensation.

Stadium Owner Responsibilities

Because patrons are guests of the stadium, the stadium has to provide each person with safe conditions so they do not get hurt. This means the owners and operators have to protect patrons from any possible harm, within reason. Some of the most common injuries from stadiums include:

  • Slip and fall injuries from spilled beverages or leaking water, particularly in the bathroom
  • Injuries from improperly working seats
  • Fall injuries from faulty or absent guardrails
  • Aggressive or negligent action by other fans that should have been prevented by the provision of adequate security
  • Food poisoning from spoiled concession stand food and beverages

If you have been hurt in an accident or incident that is attributable to the negligence of a stadium owner, it is important that you are properly informed of your legal rights.
