San Diego Stadium Premises Liability Lawyers
Contact Jurewitz Law Group If You've Been Injured
San Diego is home to various large stadiums and other venues perfect for sporting events, concerts, and other big events. Major events are presented at stadiums such as Petco Park, Qualcomm Stadium, and Viejas Arena. A fun day at the stadium watching your favorite team or performer can turn into a nightmare if an injury occurs.
Although each ticket purchased will include a legal disclaimer that is printed on the back of the ticket in the hopes that this will protect against legal action, in some cases stadium personnel have failed do their duty to protect sports fans or concertgoers from harm. If you or a loved one has been injured at one of the stadiums in the San Diego area, it is imperative that your case is reviewed immediately. The ability to recover compensation for damages will be based upon exactly how the injuries occurred.
Injuries Sustained at Petco Park or Qualcomm Stadium
Sports fans can be exceptionally aggressive, particularly when consuming alcohol, and an innocent person can suffer serious injuries in an attack. Although stadiums provide security personnel, the security force may not have been sufficient to protect against an attack by a drunk or drug intoxicated fan. Security failures may open the door to a successful claim or lawsuit, allowing the injured to recover financial compensation. Each case is unique, and should be evaluated by a qualified San Diego premises liability attorney as soon as possible.
In some cases, stadium guests have been seriously injured in a slip or trip and fall, when hit by a baseball or flying bat shards, or have fallen from a bleacher. Netting is in place in areas of these stadiums, but not all seats are protected. The closer you are to the action, the higher the possibility of being hit and seriously injured. The consequences can be significant, with stadium guests suffering brain injuries, blindness, or dangerous concussions.
Slip and Fall Accidents: Stadium Cases
Part of attending a stadium event includes the consumption of various liquids. Unfortunately, these liquids can easily spill, as fans jostle for a better view of the action. Wet surfaces are slippery, and an unsuspecting sports fan or concert-goer can easily slip and fall after a spill. If there has been a failure to clean up a dangerous spill in a timely manner, putting guests at risk, it may be possible to take legal action to recover financial compensation. In many cases, a slip and fall leads to very serious injuries, including:
- Broken bones
- Head injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Cuts, lacerations
- Spinal cord injuries
- Permanent disabilities
