Negligent Stadium Security
While sporting events are fun and usually quite safe, stadiums (especially larger ones) can invite attacks for a variety of reasons. They have massive amounts of people gathered in one place and countless exits for easy escape. They are filled with persons who are paying attention to the game and not to suspicious people around them or potential dangers. In recent years, the concern that stadiums could be targets for terrorist attacks like shootings and bombings has been on the rise. Some persons have been indicted for planning attacks against large sports stadiums in the United States. Stampedes can kill or seriously injure persons in stadiums. With emotions running high, riots and violence can break out fairly easily. With all of these potential dangers, the need for adequate stadium security is enormously important. Owners and managers of sports stadiums need to take reasonable steps to make sure that persons on their property are protected from foreseeable harms. If you have suffered an attack at a stadium, you could be entitled to compensation if the injury resulted from an owner’s failure to provide adequate security.Stadium Safety Tips:
- Be aware of the closest exit
- Be on the look-out for suspicious behavior, unattended bags, etc.
- Be a good sport. Don’t get involved in fights, riots or any other form of violence. If you think that a fight or riot is about to break out, leave the area as quickly as you can.
