Premises Liability and Temporary Structures

Planning a large outdoor event like a concert, wedding, or fair can be a very stressful and involved process. Planners have to think of everything, including accommodations, space, entertainment, food, and above all safety. Oftentimes, these events use temporary structures like stages or tents for concerts and other entertainments, or for food vendors. Because these structures are constantly built, torn down, and rebuilt, they can become weakened over time. When event workers or property owners act negligently in the construction of these structures they are putting thousands of lives in danger.

You should not have to worry about your safety when attending a music festival or other event. Injuries suffered from collapsing structures can be very severe and even life-altering. If you or someone you know has suffered an injury from a collapsed stage or other structure, contact the Rhinelander premises liability lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. at 800-242-2874 to discuss your legal options.

Structure Collapse

If you have suffered an injury from a stage or tent collapse, the cost can be much greater than just your health. If you do not fight for financial compensation, you may have to pay for your medical procedures and other expenses yourself. Some of the most common negligent actions workers can commit include the following:

  • Negligent hiring and training of workers to build stages
  • Choosing to use parts that are warped, worn, or damaged
  • Failure to adequately inspect a structure
  • Not accounting for the threat of severe weather that is likely to arise in the venue’s geographical region
