Premises Liability for Temporary Structures

Outdoor musical festivals, carnivals, and state fairs are incredibly popular tourist attractions for people all over the country. In fact, some music festivals attract almost 100,000 fans from not only the United State, but also other parts of the world. Patrons who attend these events come to make memories with family and friends, and most never imagine that they could be exposed to serious dangers. However, these events can be extremely dangerous if property owners and event workers fail to properly assemble temporary structures like stages and tents.

When temporary structures are poorly assembled, they could easily collapse and cause incredible amounts of damage. If you or someone you know has suffered an injury because of a temporary structure collapse, you may be able to fight for financial compensation. Contact the Oklahoma premises liability lawyers of the Abel Law Firm today at (405) 239-7046 to schedule an initial consultation with one of our qualified legal representatives.

Causes of Structure Collapse

Because stages and other temporary structures are constantly assembled and torn down, they can become weak or damaged due to over-use. You may be able to purse financial compensation if you have been injured due to any of the following:

  • Employees failing to properly tie down or secure structures
  • Use of damaged parts, or parts that are no longer able to support the structure
  • Employees failing to account for bad weather
  • Negligent hiring and training
