Personal Injury At Super Bowl Games

Attending the Super Bowl can be a significant life experience that you remember forever, but for some unfortunate individuals, it is also an event that will leave them with long-term disability due to injuries. When a football stadium does not effectively provide a safe environment for the spectators and fans to watch the game, the stadium can be liable for any damages that result from injuries caused by their failures. 

Knowing what you are entitled to and ensure that you collect it can be difficult, so you should always contact an attorney as soon as possible after your injury. An experienced personal injury attorney from Pyle Law is here to answer any questions you might have, so never wait to seek a free case evaluation and consultation. 

Crowds Can be Dangerous and the Stadium Must Manage Them Safely 

 Angry football fans shouting As the recent Travis Scott concert tragedy in Houston demonstrated recently, crowds of people can be dangerous or even fatal. When crowds are poorly maintained, individuals may be injured by trampling if they were unfortunate enough to fall under the feet of the crowd. Collisions with other fans and spectators – or even strikes from bottles or other objects if fans become angry and start throwing things – can also cause substantial injury. When the stadium was at fault for not maintaining your safety and protecting the fans, then you are entitled to financial compensation for your injuries and losses. 

The NFL is a Professional Service Provider 

Standards of care depend on the type of host and visitor involved when an accident occurs.  When you are an invited customer into a business, such as a paying ticket-holder at the Super Bowl, there is a high standard of care that you are entitled to. The NFL stadium owes you a standard of care and safety that is commensurate with a professional service provider. Through the NFL stadium inspection plan, conditions both on and off the field must be sufficient to meet a variety of safety standards

If you are injured due to a failure on behalf of the NFL and the stadium in which a Super Bowl game was held, you are entitled to damages that cover your losses. Common injuries at NFL games include: 

  1. Broken bones as a result of trampling or collisions with other fans
  2. Bruising and/or nerve damage from stepped-on feet or slip and falls
  3. Neck and back injury from slip and falls 
  4. Head and face injuries from assault or getting hit by objects

All of these injuries need medical attention and will result in losses, so you should learn about your right to recover compensation for those losses.
